    1. Scope

    1.1 This specification covers requirements for copper alloy sand castings for general applications. Nominal compositions of the alloys defined by this specification are shown in Table 1. This is a composite specification replacing former documents as shown in Table 1.

    Note 1—Other copper alloy castings are included in the following ASTM specifications: B 22, B 61, B 62, B 66, B 67, B 148, B 176, B 271, B 369, B 427, B 505/B 505M, B 763, B 770, and B 806.

    1.2 Component part castings produced to this specification may be manufactured in advance and supplied from stock. In such cases the manufacturer shall maintain a general quality certification of all castings without specific record or date of casting for a specific casting.

    1.3 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.
