Standard Specification for Aluminum and Aluminum-Alloy Extruded Bars, Rods, Wire, Profiles, and Tubes
|Publication Date:||1 October 2014|
|ICS Code (Aluminium products):||77.150.10|
This specification2 covers aluminum and aluminumalloy extruded bars, rods, wire, profiles, and tubes in the aluminum alloys (Note 1) and tempers shown in Table 2.
NOTE 1-Throughout this specification, the use of the term alloy in the general sense includes aluminum as well as aluminum alloy.
NOTE 2-For rolled or cold-finished bar and rod refer to Specification B211, for drawn seamless tube used in pressure applications, Specification B210, for structural pipe and tube, Specification B429/B429M, and for seamless pipe and tube used in pressure applications, Specification B241/B241M.
NOTE 3-Pipe and tube products listed in this specification are intended for general purpose applications. This specification may not address the manufacturing processes, integrity testing, and verification required for fluid-carrying applications involving pressure. See Specifications B210 or B241/B241M, or both as appropriate, for seamless pipe and tube used in fluid-carrying applications involving pressure. See Specification B234, as appropriate, for use in surface condensers, evaporators, and heat exchangers.
Alloy and temper designations are in accordance with ANSI H35.1/H35.1M. 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 E527.
For acceptance criteria for inclusion of new aluminum and aluminum alloys in this specification, see Annex A2.
