Historical (view previous versions of standard)
This specification covers iron-nickel-chromium alloy (UNS K94760) used primarily for glass-sealing applications in electronic devices. The chemical composition of the material shall conform to the requirements prescribed. Chemical analysis shall be made, when desired, in accordance with the prescribed requirements. The average linear coefficient of thermal expansion shall be within limits of the requirements specified. The material shall be commercially smooth, uniform in cross section, in composition, and in temper; it shall be free of scale, corrosion, cracks, seams, scratches, slivers, and other defects.
