    Abstract

    This specification establishes the requirements for copper alloys in ingot form that shall be subjected to remelting for the manufacture of castings having the Copper Alloy UNS No. designations specified and enumerated herein. Any material and manufacturing process may be used so long as the alloy is of the required composition and mechanical characteristics, and the yielded ingot is free of defects of a kind that would render it unsuitable for remelting. Materials shall hence be sampled, prepared, and tested accordingly to examine their conformance to mechanical, chemical composition, and weldability requirements.

    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. Scope

    1.1 This specification establishes the requirements for copper alloys in ingot form for remelting for the manufacturing of castings having the Copper Alloy UNS No. designation, commercial designations and nominal composition shown in Table 1 and Table 2.

    1.2 A cross reference of Copper Alloy UNS Nos. and copper alloy casting specifications is given in Table 3.

    1.3 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.
