1.1 This specification establishes the general requirements common to wrought copper and copper alloy rod, bar, shapes, and forgings which shall apply to Specifications B 16, B 21, B 98, B 124, B 138, B 139, B 140/B 140M, B 150, B 151, B 196, B 283, B 301, B 371, B 411, B 441, B 453, B 455, and B 570 to the extent referenced therein.
1.2 The chemical composition, physical and mechanical properties, and all other requirements not included in this specification are prescribed in the product specification.
1.3 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.
1.4 The values stated in inch-pounds units or SI units are to be regarded separately in the standard. Within the text the SI values are given in brackets. The values stated in each system of units are not exact equivalents; each system is independent of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in nonconformance with the specification.
