1.1 This specification establishes the requirements for copper sheet, strip, plate, and rolled bar produced from the following coppers.
|Copper UNS No.||Previous DesignationA||Type of Copper|
|C10200B||OF||Oxygen-free without residualdeoxidants|
|C10300||...||Oxygen-free extra low phosphorus|
|C10400, C10500, C10700||OFS||Oxygen-free, silver bearing|
|C10800||...||Oxygen-free low phosphorus|
|C11000B||ETP||Electrolytic tough pitch|
|C11300, C11400, C11600B||STP||Silver bearing tough pitch|
|C12000||DLP||Phosphorized, low residual phos-phorus|
|C12200B||DHP||Phosphorized, high residual phos-phorus|
|C12300||DPS||Phosphorized, silver bearing|
|C14200||DPA||Phosphorus deoxidized, arsenical|
|C14420||...||Tin bearing tellurium copper|
|C14530||...||Tin tellurium bearing copper|
Note 1--Each of the coppers listed has unique properties that can make it suitable for specific applications. The purchaser should consult with the supplier to determine which copper would be best suited for the intended application.
Note 2--Copper UNS Nos. C10400, C10500, C10700, C11300, C11400, and C11600 identify coppers with specific silver content (see Table 1 ).
Note 3--This specification is not intended to cover material rolled to ounce-weight thicknesses. Such material is covered by Specification B370.
Plates for locomotive fireboxes are covered by Specification B 11.
Flat copper products with finished (rolled or drawn) edges (flat wire and strip) are also covered by Specification B72.
1.1.1 When no specific copper is identified in the contract or purchase order, the supplier may furnish product from any of the listed coppers.
1.2 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as the standard. The SI values given in parentheses are provided for information only.
1.3The following safety hazards caveat only pertains to the test method portion, Section 14 of this specification: 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.
