    1. Scope

    1.1 This specification covers a variety of nonferrous powder metallurgy (P/M) structural materials and includes a classification system, or material designation code. With the classification system, this specification includes chemical composition and minimum tensile yield strength.

    1.2 The property values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.

    Note 1--Paragraphs 6.1 and 8.1 govern material classification by the designation code. The classification system is explained in the Appendix.
