    1. Scope

    1.1 These test methods describe procedures for determining the presence of cuprous oxide (Cu2O) in products made from deoxidized and oxygen-free copper.

    1.2 Units 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.

    1.4 The test methods appear in the following order:

    Sections
    Microscopical Examination without Thermal Treatment
    Microscopical Examination after Thermal Treatment
    Closed Bend Test after Thermal Treatment
    Reverse Bend Test after Thermal Treatment
