1.1 This specification covers aluminum and aluminum alloy flat sheet, coiled sheet, and plate, in the alloys (Note 1) and tempers shown in, Tables 2 and 3 in the following finishes:
1.1.1 Plate in all alloys and sheet in heat-treatable alloys: mill finish.
1.1.2 Sheet in nonheat-treatable alloys: mill finish, one-side bright mill finish, standard one-side bright finish, and standard two-sides bright finish.
1.2 Alloy and temper designations are in accordance with ANSI H35.1M. The equivalent Unified Numbering System alloy designations are those of Table 1 preceded by A9, for example, A91100 for aluminum 1100 in accordance with Practice E 527.
Note 1—Throughout this specification, use of the term alloyin the general sense includes aluminum as well as aluminum alloy.
Note 2—See Specification B 632/B 632M for Tread Plate.
1.3 This specification is the metric counterpart of Specification B 209.
1.4 For acceptance criteria for inclusion of new aluminum and aluminum alloys in this specification, see Annex A2.
