    1. Scope

    1.1 This specification establishes the requirements for copper sheet, strip, plate, and rolled bar produced from the following coppers.

    1.1.1 When a specific copper is not 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 or SI units are to be regarded separately as standard. The values in each system are not exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in nonconformance with the specification.

    1.3 The following safety hazards caveat only pertains to the test method portion, Section 13 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.
