Standard Specification for Aluminum and Aluminum-Alloy Sheet and Plate
|Publication Date:||10 May 2000|
|ICS Code (Aluminium products):||77.150.10|
1.1 This specification covers aluminum and aluminum-alloy flat sheet, coiled sheet, and plate, in the alloys (Note 1) and tempers shown in Tables 2 and 3, and in the following finishes:
1.1.1 Plate in all alloys and sheet in heat-treatable alloys: mill finish.
1.1.2 Sheet in nonheat-treatable alloys: mill finish, one-side bright mill finish, standard one-side bright finish, and standard two-sides bright finish.
NOTE 1--Throughout this specification use of the term alloy in the general sense includes aluminum as well as aluminum alloy.
NOTE 2--See Specification B 632 for tread plate.
1.2 Alloy and temper designations are in accordance with ANSI H35.1. The equivalent Unified Numbering System alloy designations are those of Table 1 preceded by A9, for example, A91100 for aluminum 1100 in accordance with Practice E 527.
1.3 A complete metric companion to Specification B 209 has been developed--B 209M; therefore, no metric equivalents are presented in this specification.
1.4 For acceptance criteria for inclusion of new aluminum and aluminum alloys in this specification, see Annex A2.
