Standard Specification for General Requirements for Wrought Copper and Copper-Alloy Plate, Sheet, Strip, and Rolled Bar (Metric)
|Publication Date:||10 May 2001|
|ICS Code (Copper products):||77.150.30|
This specification covers a group of general requirements common to several wrought product specifications. Unless otherwise specified in the purchase order or in an individual specification, these general requirements shall apply to copper and copper-alloy plate, sheet, strip, and rolled bar supplied under each of the following product specifications issued by ASTM: B 36/B 36M, B 96/B 96M, B 103/B 103M, B 121/B 121M, B 122/B 122M, B 152/B 152M, B 169/B 169M, B 194, B 291, B 422, B 465, B 534, B 591, B 592, B 694, B 740, B 747, and B 768(Footnote 2).
NOTE 1 - A complete metric companion to Specification B 248 has been developed - B 248M; therefore no metric equivalents are presented in this specification.
Footnote 2 - The UNS system for copper and copper alloys (see Practice E 527) is a simple expansion of the former standard designation system accomplished by the addition of a prefix "C" and a suffix "00". The suffix can be used to accommodate composition variations of the base alloy.
