Standard Specification for Free-Cutting Bismuth Brass Rod, Bar and Wire
|Publication Date:||1 January 2021|
|ICS Code (Other non-ferrous metals and their alloys):||77.120.99|
1.1 This specification establishes the requirements for free-cutting bismuth brass rod, bar and wire of UNS Alloy No. C49250, C49260, C49265, C49340, and C49345 suitable for high-speed screw machine work, or for general applications.
1.2 Typically, product made to this specification is furnished as straight lengths, or coils when requested.
1.3 Units-The values stated in either SI units or inch-pound units are to be regarded separately as standard. The values stated in each system are not necessarily exact equivalents; therefore, to ensure conformance with the standard, each system shall be used independently of the other, and values from the two systems shall not be combined.
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.
