    1. Scope

    1.1 This specification establishes the requirements for copper-nickel-zinc and copper-nickel rod and bar for general application produced from Copper Alloy UNS Nos. C70600, C70620, C71500, C71520, C74500, C75200, C75700, C76400, C77000, and C79200.

    1.1.1 Copper Alloys UNS Nos. C70620 and C71520 are for product intended for welding applications.

    1.1.2 The values stated in either inch-pound or SI units are to be regarded separately as standard. The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in nonconformance with the standard.

    Note 1

    Requirements for copper-nickel-zinc alloy wire appear in Specification B 206/B 206M.
