    1. Scope

    1.1 This specification establishes the requirements of copper, copper alloy, copper-clad stainless steel (CCS), and copper-clad alloy steel (CAS) materials, sheet, and strip, in various thicknesses, for use as electrostatic or electromagnetic shielding for insulated power, control, instrumentation, and communication cables.

    Note 1—See Specification B 736, for related standards for aluminum-based shielding materials.

    1.2 The products covered are the following:

    Copper or Copper Alloy UNS No.Type of Products
    C11000copper
    C19400copper-iron alloy
    C22000copper-zinc alloy (commercial bronze)
    C23000copper-zinc alloy (red brass)
    C66400copper-zinc-iron-cobalt alloy
    C66410copper-zinc-iron alloy
    C66430copper-zinc-iron-tin alloy
    C71000cupro-nickel 20 %
    ...copper-clad stainless steel (CCS)
    ...copper-clad alloy steel (CAS)

    1.3 The values stated in inch-pound units are the standard, except for temperature and grain size which are given in SI units. Values in parentheses are for information only.

    1.4 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.
