Historical (view previous versions of standard)
This specification covers UNS N05500 nickel-copper-aluminum alloy rounds, squares, hexagons, rectangles, and forgings and forging stocks manufactured by either hot working or cold working, and cold-worked wire. The material should conform to the required mechanical properties in both aged and unaged conditions. Precipitation hardening is accomplished by holding the material at a high temperature, followed by furnace cooling and then air cooling.
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-aluminum alloy (UNS N05500) in the form of rounds, squares, hexagons, or rectangles, and forgings and forging stock, manufactured either by hot working or cold working, and cold-worked wire.
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.
