    1. Scope

    1.1 This specification establishes the requirements for Copper Alloy UNS Nos. C61300 and C61400 aluminum bronze sheet, strip, and rolled bar.

    1.2 The products made to this specification are commonly used for drawing, forming, stamping, and bending applications and are not intended for electrical applications.

    Note 1--The products produced under this general specification may be used in many applications in which the individual requirements may be too specific to be determined by normal physical or mechanical testing. Therefore, it may be advisable for the purchaser to submit samples or drawings to the manufacturer to be assured that the product furnished is suitable for the intended application.

    Note 2--Refer to Specification B171/B171M for plate product.

    1.3 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.
