A Except Copper UNS Nos. C10910 (low oxygen), C14200 (phosphorus deoxidized, arsenical), C14420 (tin bearing tellurium), and C14530 (tin tellurium bearing) these types of copper are classified in Classification B224. B SAE Specification CA101 conforms to Copper UNS No. C10100; SAE Specification CA102 conforms to the requirements for Copper UNS No. C10200; SAE Specification CA110 conforms to the requirements for Copper UNS No. C11000; SAE Specifications CA113, CA114, and CA116 conform to the requirements for Copper UNS Nos. C11300, C11400, and C11600; SAE Specification CA120 conforms to Copper UNS No. C12000; and SAE Specification CA122 conforms to the requirements for Copper UNS No. C12200.C Unless specified in the contract or purchase order the supplier is permitted to provide ETP copper or TP copper.Note 1-Each of the coppers listed has unique properties that can make it suitable for specific applications. The purchaser should consult with the supplier to determine which copper would be best suited for the intended application.Note 2-This specification is not intended to establish requirements for material rolled to ounce-weight thicknesses. Such material is defined in Specification B370.
Plates for locomotive fireboxes are defined in Specification B11.
Flat copper products with finished (rolled or drawn) edges (flat wire and strip) are defined in Specification B272.
1.1.1 When a specific copper is not identified in the contract or purchase order, the supplier may furnish product from any of the listed coppers.
1.2 The values stated in either SI units or inch-pound units are to be regarded separately as standard. The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in non-conformance with the standard.
1.3 The following safety hazards caveat only pertains to the test method portion, Section 13 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 use.
This standard covers the requirements for copper sheet, strip, plate, and rolled bar produced from copper with the following UNS Nos.; C10100, C10200, C10300, C10400, C10500, C10700, C10800,... View More
This standard covers the requirements for copper sheet, strip, plate, and rolled bar produced from copper with the following UNS Nos.; C10100, C10200, C10300, C10400, C10500, C10700, C10800, C10910, C11000, C11300, C11400, C11600, C12000, C12200, C12300, C14200, C14420, and C14530. Chemical composition shall conform to the chemical requirements pertaining to the materials UNS No. Tempering of materials shall be done by hot-rolling, cold rolling, and annealing. Copper material shall meet the maximum limit of electrical resistivity as indicated. The material shall undergo tensile strength, Rockwell hardness, and plate item tests to conform with the mechanical proptery requirement of the specification. The material shall also be capable of passing microscopical examination and embrittlement test, but not required by the specification.View Less
