1.1 This specification covers the requirements for electrodeposited coatings of lead and lead-tin alloys on steel and ferrous alloys. The coatings of lead-tin alloys are those that range in tin content up to but not exceeding 15 mass%. The coatings ranging between 3 and 15 mass% in tin content are known also as "terne" metallic electrodeposits.
1.2 This specification does not apply to sheet, strip, or wire in the unfabricated form.
1.3 The following precautionary caveat pertains only to the test method portion, Section 11, of this specification: This standard does not purport to address all of the safety problems, 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.
