Significance and Use
These test methods are primarily intended to test refined nickel metal for compliance with compositional specifications. It is assumed that all who use these test methods will be trained analysts capable of performing common laboratory procedures skillfully and safely. It is expected that the analytical work will be performed in a properly equipped laboratory under appropriate quality control practices.
1.1 These test methods apply to the chemical analysis of refined nickel and other forms of metallic nickel having chemical compositions within the following limits:
