    Abstract

    This specification covers refined nickel primarily produced from ore or matte or similar raw material. Chemical analysis shall be performed on the metal and shall conform to the chemical composition requirements in nickel, cobalt, copper, carbon, iron, sulfur, phosphorus, manganese, silicon, arsenic, lead, antimony, bismuth, tin, and zinc. The principal commercial forms are cathodes, briquettes, and pellets. Cathodes shall be sampled using template drilling procedure.

    Significance and Use

    1. Scope

    1.1 This specification covers refined nickel primarily produced from ore or matte or similar raw material. The principal commercial forms are cathodes, briquettes, and pellets.

    1.2 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.

    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.
