1.1 This specification covers eight typical white metal bearing alloys, in bar or ingot form, known commercially as "babbitt metal." The alloys are specified, covering the range commercially used, and are designated by the alloy numbers shown in .
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 become familiar with all hazards including those identified in the appropriate Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) for this product/material as provided by the manufacturer, to establish appropriate safety and health practices, and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
2. Referenced Documents (purchase separately) The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard.
