Standard Specification for Composition Bronze or Ounce Metal Castings
|Publication Date:||1 May 2015|
|ICS Code (Copper products):||77.150.30|
This specification2 establishes requirements for an alloy having a composition of copper, tin, lead, and zinc, used for component castings of valves, flanges, and fittings. The common trade name of this alloy is 85-5-5-5; the correct identification is Copper Alloy UNS No. C83600.3
The castings covered are used in products that may be manufactured in advance and supplied from stock from the manufacturer or other dealer.
The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.
2 For ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code applications see related Specification SB-61 of that Code.
3 The UNS system for copper and copper alloys (see Practice E527) 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.
