ASTM WK44050

    Revision of B899 - 13 Standard Terminology Relating to Non-ferrous Metals and Alloys

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: B899 - 14

    Developed by Subcommittee: B02.91 | Committee B02 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Rationale

    Revisit the definition for a nonferrous alloy. Potentially develop definitions for nickel alloy and ferrous alloy. Develop a clear method to calculate the iron content to determine whether it is the principle element. Intent is to have a common method in B02 and A01 to determine iron content and whether or not it is the principle element. This will ensure that the alloy appears in the proper standards, is provided the proper UNS number and is under the responsibility of the proper committee and subcommittee.
