|ICS Code (Copper and copper alloys):||77.120.30|
1.1 This test method describes the technique for conducting the mercurous nitrate test for residual stress in wrought copper and cast or wrought copper-base alloy products. This test method is intended to cover the mercurous nitrate test of certain copper-alloy products supplied in accordance with ASTM specifications prepared by Committee B-5. This test method is not intended to be used on assembled parts.
NOTE 1--For any particular copper alloy, reference should be made to the material specification.
1.2 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.
