Standard Specification for Bronze Castings for Bridges and Turntables
|Publication Date:||1 April 2017|
|ICS Code (Copper products):||77.150.30|
This specification establishes requirements for bronze castings for turntables, movable bridges and bridge parts, and bronze castings suitable for use in bridges and other structures for fixed and expansion bearings in which motion is slow and intermittent. The following Copper Alloys are specified: UNS No. C86300, C90500, C91100, C91300, and C93700.
NOTE 1-Historically, the alloys in this specification have been used in the applications listed in Appendix X1. Actual practice may vary.2
The values stated in either SI units or inch-pound units are to be regarded separately as standard. Within the text, SI units are shown in brackets. The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in non-conformance with the standard.
The following safety hazard caveat pertains only to the test method(s) described in this specification:
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 international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.

2 The UNS system for copper and copper alloys (see Practice E527) is a simple expansion of the former standard designation system accomplished by the addition of a prefix "C" and a suffix "00." The suffix can be used to accommodate composition variations of the base alloy
