Standard Specification for Copper Alloy Strip for Use in Manufacture of Electrical Connectors or Spring Contacts
|Publication Date:||15 March 2006|
|ICS Code (Superconductivity and conducting materials):||29.050|
This specification establishes the requirements for copper alloy strip for use in the manufacture of electrical connectors or spring contacts produced from one of the following Copper Alloy UNS Nos.2: C14530, C15100, C15500, C17000, C17200, C17410, C17450, C17460, C17500, C17510, C19010, C19025, C19210, C19400, C19500, C19700, C23000, C26000, C40810, C40850, C40860, C42200, C42500, C42520, C42600, C50580, C50780, C51000, C51080, C51100, C51180, C51980, C52100, C52180, C52480, C63800, C65400, C68800, C70250, C70260, C70265, C75200, and C76200.
The requirements for the other copper alloys such as copper-nickel-tin spinodal, UNS C72650, C72700, and C72900, shall be as prescribed in the current edition of Specification B 740.
The values stated in either inch-pound units or SI 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 noncompliance with this specification.
2 The UNS system for copper and copper alloys (see Practice E 527) is a simple expansion of the former standard designation system accomplished by the addition of a prefix "c" and a suffix "00." The suffix can be used to accommodate composition variations of the base alloy.
