Approval may be given for other alloy types not mentioned here however such requests shall include a justification (classification requirement such as rule basis or approved drawing etc.) for seeking approval.

The approval will further be limited to:

casting method

Approval testing of castings will cover approval of ingots and semis, but not vice versa.
