1.1 This specification covers limits of variation for determining acceptability of the chemical composition of cast or wrought nickel, nickel alloy, and cobalt alloy parts and/or material supplied by a producer. Check analysis limits for elements or for ranges of elements not currently listed herein shall be as specified in the applicable material specification or as agreed upon by purchaser and supplier.
1.2 In case of any conflicting requirements, the requirements of the purchase order, the individual material specification, and this general specification shall prevail in the sequence named.
1.3 When specifically referenced in the material specification, the buyer may elect to apply check analysis limits to determine acceptability at his final acceptance or verification procedures. Check analysis limits are not permitted or are to be used by the producer for their own ladle or ingot analysis acceptance testing.
1.4 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, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
1.5 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.
This specification details the limits of variation for determining the chemical check analysis limits of cast or wrought nickel, nickel alloy and cobalt alloy parts and/or supplied material.
