1.1 These test methods cover procedures for the chemical analysis of the commercial alloys known as copper-base alloy ingots for sand castings, forging rods, bars, and shapes; aluminum brass; manganese bronze; phosphor bronze; copper-silicon alloys; and similar alloys having chemical compositions within the following limits.
Whenever possible the technique and procedures for analysis should be checked against a National Institute of Standards and Technology standard sample having a composition comparable to the material being analyzed.
1.2 The test methods appear in the following order:
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. For precautions to be observed in these methods, refer to Practices E50.
