Standard Specification for Manganese Bronze Rod, Bar, and Shapes
|Publication Date:||1 January 2011|
|ICS Code (Copper products):||77.150.30|
1.1 This specification establishes the requirements for manganese bronze rod, bar and shapes produced in Copper Alloy UNS Nos. C67000, C67500, or C67600.
1.2 Units-The values stated in inch-pound units or SI units are to be regarded separately in the standard. Within the text, the SI values are shown in brackets. The values stated in each system of units may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in nonconformance with the standard.
1.3 WarningMercury has been designated by EPA and many state agencies as a hazardous material that can cause central nervous system, kidney, and liver damage. Mercury, or its vapor, may be hazardous to health and corrosive to materials. Caution should be taken when handling mercury and mercury-containing products. See the applicable product Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) for details and EPA's website (http://www.epa.gov/
Note 1-Product suitable for hot forging applications is available under Specification B124/B124M.
1.4 The following safety hazard caveat pertains only to the Performance Requirements section of this specification.
1.4.1 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.

This specification establishes the requirements for rods, bars, and shapes of manganese bronze with Copper Alloy UNS Nos. C67000, C67500, and C67600. The materials for manufacture shall be cast billets of such purity and soundness as to be suitable for processing by hot working (extrusion, forging, or rolling) to produce a uniform wrought structure in the finished product. Tempers available under this specification are O60 (soft anneal temper), M20 (as hot rolled temper), M30 (as hot extruded temper), H02 (half-hard temper), and H04 (hard temper). Products shall be tested (including by residual stress test and ammonia vapor test) and shall adhere to dimensional (diameter, width, thickness, shape, length, straightness, and edge contour), mechanical (tensile and yield strength, and elongation), and chemical composition requirements.View Less
