German term or phrase: Kantstangen, Profilrohre
The text is all about how to prevent stress corrosion cracking in brass.
'Bei längeren Lagerzeiten sollte vor allem bei Halbzeugen, bei denen aufgrund der Form mit ungleichmäßigen Zugspannungen zu rechnen ist (Kantstangen, Rohre, Profile, und Profilrohre), bevorzugt entspanntes Material bestellt werden.'
Also, does anyone know how I should translate 'Halbzeugen' here?
