These practices, used in conjunction with the following appropriate quantitative optical emission spectrochemical methods, Test Methods E 101, E 227, E 607, and E 1251, are suitable for use in manufacturing control, material or product acceptance, and research and development.View Less
1.1 These practices describe the sampling of aluminum and aluminum-base alloys to obtain a chill-cast disk suitable for quantitative optical emission spectrochemical analysis. The disk in the region to be excited is representative of the melt or product and gives a repeatability of results which approaches that of the reference materials used.
1.2 These practices describe procedures for representative sampling of molten metal, from fabricated or cast products which can be melted, and from other forms which cannot be melted.
1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety problems, 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. Specific precautionary statements are given in 5.1 and 6.2.
