Historical (view previous versions of standard)
This specification covers rolled nickel (UNS N02200) and low-carbon nickel (UNS N02201) plate, sheet, and strip. The material shall conform to the chemical requirements for nickel, copper, iron, manganese, carbon, silicon, and sulfur. The material shall conform to the mechanical property requirements for tensile strength, yield strength, elongation, and Rockwell hardness. For deep drawing and spinning quality sheet and strip, the material shall conform to specified values for grain size and hardness properties. The material shall be uniform in quality and temper, smooth, commercially straight or flat, and free of injurious imperfections. Test methods (chemical analysis, mechanical test, grain size test) shall be performed in accordance to referenced ASTM documents itemized herein.
