Organization: ASTM
Publication Date: 1 October 2015
Status: active
Page Count: 16
ICS Code (Aluminium products): 77.150.10
ICS Code (Magnesium products): 77.150.20
scope:

These test methods cover the tension testing of wrought and cast aluminum- and magnesium-alloy products, with the exception of aluminum foil,2 and are derived from Test Methods E8M, which cover the tension testing of all metallic materials.

NOTE 1-These metric test methods are the equivalents of those in Test Methods B557, and are compatible in technical content except for the requirement of longer gage lengths for round specimens.

NOTE 2-Foil is sheet metal less than 0.20 mm thick. There is an overlap in the thickness range 0.15 to 0.20 mm defined for foil and sheet. Sheet products in this thickness range are supplied to sheet product specifications and foil products in this thickness range are supplied to foil product specifications. Exceptions to the provisions of these test methods may need to be made in individual specifications or test methods for a particular material.

The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.

This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

2 For test methods of tension testing of aluminum foil, see Test Methods E345.
