    1. Scope

    1.1 This specification establishes the requirements for seamless, copper alloy pipe and tube in nominal pipe sizes, both regular and extra strong, and seamless tube in straight lengths for general engineering purposes. Pipe and tube are produced in the copper alloy UNS Numbers: C61300, C61400, C63020, C65100, and C65500.

    Note 1

    Inquiry should be made of the manufacturer or supplier concerning the availability of product in a specific alloy.

    1.2 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.

    The following pertains only to the test method described in 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.
