Standard Specification for Copper-Silicon Alloy Plate, Sheet, Strip, and Rolled Bar for General Purposes and Pressure Vessels
|Publication Date:||10 April 2001|
|ICS Code (Copper products):||77.150.30|
1.1 This specification establishes the requirements for copper-silicon alloy plate, sheet, strip, and rolled bar for drawing, forming, stamping, bending, and general engineering applications, and for pressure vessel applications. The alloys involved are copper alloys UNS Nos. C65100, C65400, and C65500.
1.2 When product is ordered for ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code applications, consult the Code for applicable alloys.
1.3 The values stated in inch-pound or SI units are to be regarded separately as standard. Within the text, SI units are shown in brackets. The values in each system are not exactly equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in nonconformance with the specification.
1.4 The following safety hazard caveat pertains only to the test methods described in Section 11 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 its use.
