Standard Specification for Copper Sheet, Strip, Plate, and Rolled Bar
|Publication Date:||15 January 2013|
|ICS Code (Copper products):||77.150.30|
This specification2 establishes the requirements for copper sheet, strip, plate, and rolled bar produced from the following coppers.
NOTE 1-Each of the coppers listed has unique properties that can make it suitable for specific applications. The purchaser should consult with the supplier to determine which copper would be best suited for the intended application.
NOTE 2-This specification is not intended to establish requirements for material rolled to ounce-weight thicknesses. Such material is defined in Specification B370.
Plates for locomotive fireboxes are defined in Specification B11. Flat copper products with finished (rolled or drawn) edges (flat wire and strip) are defined in Specification B272.
When a specific copper is not identified in the contract or purchase order, the supplier may furnish product from any of the listed coppers.
The values stated in either SI units or inch-pound units are to be regarded separately as standard. 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 hazards caveat only pertains to the test method portion, Section 13 of 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.
