Historical (view previous versions of standard)
This specification covers nickel-copper alloys UNS N04400 and N04405 in the form of hot-worked and cold-worked rod, bar, and wire. The material shall conform to the chemical composition limits specified by the reference material. The materials for rod, bar, or wire shall conform to the mechanical properties specified by the reference material. One test per lot shall be performed for chemical analysis, tension test, hardness test, and wrapping test.
This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard. It is informational only and not an official part of the standard; the full text of the standard itself must be referred to for its use and application. ASTM does not give any warranty express or implied or make any representation that the contents of this abstract are accurate, complete or up to date.
1.1 This specification covers nickel-copper alloys UNS N04400 and N04405* in the form of hot-worked and cold-worked rod and bar in the conditions shown in Table 1 and cold-worked wire in the conditions shown in Table 2.
1.2 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.
1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to become familiar with all hazards including those identified in the appropriate Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) for this product/material as provided by the manufacturer, to establish appropriate safety and health practices, and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
