ICS Code (Aluminium products): 77.150.10
ICS Code (Magnesium products): 77.150.20
scope:

These test methods cover the tension testing of wrought and cast aluminum- and magnesium-alloy products, with the exception of aluminum foil,2 and are derived from Test Methods E8, which cover the tension testing of all metallic materials.

The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.

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.

NOTE 1-Foil is sheet metal less than 0.0079 in. thick. There is an overlap in the thickness range 0.006 to 0.0079 in. defined for foil and sheet. Sheet products in this thickness range are supplied to sheet product specifications and foil products in this thickness range are supplied to foil product specifications. Exceptions to the provisions of these test methods may need to be made in individual specifications or test methods for a particular material.

NOTE 2-Acomplete metric companion to Test Methods B557 has been developed-Test Methods B557M; therefore, no metric equivalents are presented in these test methods.

2 For test methods of tension testing of aluminum foil, see Test Methods E345.
