Historical (view previous versions of standard)
This specification details the requirements for alloys to be used as components in the manufacture of bonded multi-component thermostat metal strip. It describes alloys having composition, and thermal expansion suitable for application in thermostat metal sheet and strip. The material shall be free of scale, slivers, cracks, seams, corrosion and other defects as best commercial practice will permit. Surfaces shall be uniform and sufficiently clean. Product surface condition can be agreed upon between supplier and purchaser since surface condition can vary for different alloys and because bonding practices vary. The material shall be made of carbon, manganese, silicon, phosphorus, sulfur, chromium, nickel, copper, aluminum, cobalt, and iron. This product shall be supplied in the condition agreed upon by purchaser and seller. Hardness shall be measured on representative samples from each heat treat lot.

1.1 This specification describes requirements for alloys to be used as components in the manufacture of bonded multi-component thermostat metal strip. More specifically it describes alloys having composition, and thermal expansion suitable for application in thermostat metal sheet and strip.
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.
