||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
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.
