Standard Practice for Codification of Unalloyed Magnesium and Magnesium-Alloys, Cast and Wrought
|Publication Date:||1 November 2011|
|ICS Code (Magnesium products):||77.150.20|
This practice provides a system for designating unalloyed magnesium and magnesium-alloys that have been used commercially since 1952, and thus is intended to be the registration source for unalloyed magnesium and magnesiumalloys. A record of designations along with the established compositions is given in Table 2.
The equivalent Unified Numbering System (UNS) alloy designations shown in the appendixes are in accordance with Practice E527.
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.
