ASTM B988 - 13
Standard Specification for Powder Metallurgy (PM) Titanium and Titanium Alloy Structural Components
Active Standard ASTM B988 | Developed by Subcommittee: B09.11
Book of Standards Volume: 02.05
This specification covers powder metallurgy (PM) structural components fabricated from commercially pure (CP) (that is, unalloyed) titanium powder, pre-alloyed powders, and mixtures of elemental powders or mixtures of elemental powders and pre-alloyed powders. It addresses ordering information, materials and manufacture, chemical composition requirements, tensile requirements, physical properties, mechanical properties, dimensions, mass, permissible variations, sampling, inspection, and certification.
