ASTM WK46330

    Revision of B108 / B108M - 12e1 Standard Specification for Aluminum-Alloy Permanent Mold Castings

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: B108 / B108M - 12e1

    Developed by Subcommittee: B07.01 | Committee B07 | Contact Staff Manager



    WK46330

    1. Rationale

    An improved gating system for the test bar mold has been developed by Case Western Reserve and the AFS, which produces significantly higher properties to the standard test bar mold design shown in B108. It is the subcommittees intention to place a note in the body of the standard informing users that there is an option and show a dimensioned drawing the improved gating design in the non-mandatory information of the standard. In the design, the test specimen remains the same, only the gating is changed.
