The equivalent Unified Numbering System alloy designations are those shown preceded by A9, for example, A91100 for aluminum 1100 in accordance with Practice E 527. B Cladding ratio must be specified (see 5.4).
1.4 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.
1.5 The following precautionary caveat pertains only to the test method portion, Section 12, 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.
