Notes:     (a) Permissible but not recommended for prolonged use above 800⁰F
                (d) Not to be used over 650⁰F
                (f) Not to be used over 800⁰F
                (g) Not to be used over 850⁰F
                (h) Not to be used over 1000⁰F
Additional Notes:     
    (1) Upon prolonged exposure to temperatures above about 800⁰F (425⁰C), the carbide phase of carbonsteel may be converted to graphite   
  (3) Only killed steel shall be used above 850⁰F (455⁰C)
(5) At temperatures over 1000⁰F (540⁰C), use only when the carbon content is 0.04 percent or higher
(6) For temperatures above 1000⁰F (540⁰F), use only if the material is heat treated by heating it to a
temperature of at least 1900⁰F (1040⁰C) and quenching  in water or rapidly cooling by other means.
