Standard Specification for Hot-Rolled and/or Cold-Finished Hafnium Rod and Wire
|Publication Date:||1 May 2010|
|ICS Code (Other products of non-ferrous metals):||77.150.99|
This specification covers hot- or cold-worked hafnium rod and wire.
This specification contains two material grades, one specifically for nuclear applications (Grade R1) and one for commercial alloying applications (Grade R3).
The products covered include the following:
Rod 3⁄8 to 1 in. (9.5 to 25 mm) in diameter.
Wire less than 3⁄8 in. (9.5 mm) in diameter.
Unless a single unit is used, for example, corrosion mass gain in mg/dm2, the values stated in either inch-pound or SI units are to be regarded separately as standard. The values stated in each system are not exact equivalents; therefore, each system must be used independently of the other. SI values cannot be mixed with inch-pound values.
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.
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.
