Active Standard ASTM B982 | Developed by Subcommittee: B02.02
Book of Standards Volume: 02.04
This specification covers the sampling of lead and lead alloys to obtain a sample suitable for quantitative optical emission spectrochemical analysis. It includes procedures for sample preparation, obtaining representative samples from molten metal, from fabricated, or cast products that can be melted, and from other forms that cannot be melted. This specification, used in conjunction with an appropriate quantitative optical emission spectrochemical method, is suitable for use in manufacturing control, material or product acceptance, and development and research. It deals with ordering information, materials and manufacture, composition, sizes and shapes, appearance, lot, sampling for chemical analysis, apparatus, preparation of specimens, marking and special requirements, inspection, and rejection and rehearing.
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 the sampling of lead and lead alloys to obtain a sample suitable for quantitative optical emission spectrochemical analysis. Included are procedures for sample preparation, obtaining representative samples from molten metal, from fabricated, or cast products that can be melted, and from other forms that cannot be melted.
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 establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
