Historical (view previous versions of standard)
This specification covers the standard for rolled nickel and nickel alloy plate, sheet, and strip. The materials shall be manufactured by one either electric-arc, electric-induction, or other suitable processes. The specimens shall also be subjected to chemical analysis, tension test, and grain size test. If one of the specimens fails to meet the prescribed requirements, two additional specimens from different sample pieces shall be tested again.
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 a group of general requirements that, unless otherwise specified in the purchase order or in an individual specification, shall apply to rolled nickel and nickel alloy plate, sheet, and strip, under each of the following specifications issued by ASTM: Specifications B127, B162, B168, B333, B409, B424, B434, B435, B443, B463, B536, B575, B582, B599, B620, B625, B670, B688, B709, B718, B755, B814, B818, B872.
1.2 In case of any conflicting requirements, the requirements of the purchase order, the individual material specification, and this general specification shall prevail in the sequence named.
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.
1.4 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.
