ASTM Flat Rolled Nickel Specification Replaces Numerous Documents

B 906, Standard Specification for General Requirements for Flat-Rolled Nickel and Nickel Alloys Plate, Sheet, and Strip provides a one-stop reference for standard general requirements that were previously accessible in numerous separate documents. Developed to expedite the work of metallurgists, purchasing agents, fabricators, and engineers, B 906 was completed by a task group of ASTM Subcommittee B02.07 on Nonferrous Metals and Alloys, with abundant input from metals industry producers.

“This standard will be used by both producers and users in the industry as a benchmark when specifying material requirements,” said Ronald Gerlock, engineer, Market and Product Development, Allegheny Ludlum Corp., Brackenridge, Pa., the task group leader. “It represents a big step forward in standardizing nickel and nickel alloys.”

Twenty-nine reference tables provide dimensions for permissible variations in the expansive specification. Guidance includes ordering information, chemical composition, sampling, testing, finishing, edging, repair, inspection, certification, and other related topics. ASTM, AIAG (Automotive Industry Action Group), ANSI (American National Standards Institute), and ASME (American Society of Mechanical Engineers) standards are referenced.

Committee B02 meets Nov. 13-15 during ASTM Committee Week in Orlando, Fla. For meeting or membership details, contact B02 Staff Manager Tim Brooke, ASTM (610/832-9729). //
