Historical (view previous versions of standard)
This specification covers electronic grade alloys of copper and nickel in wrought forms suitable for external and internal use in electron devices. The alloy shall be free from directional properties and shall be handled in such a manner that oxide contamination is minimized. The material shall conform to the chemical composition requirements which include nickel, cobalt, iron, zinc, manganese, lead, carbon, silicon, sulfur, aluminum, phosphorus, and copper contents. Grain size, mechanical properties, and magnetic permeability shall conform to the requirements of this specification. The alloys shall be tested for macroscopical and microscopical examinations. Packaging and marking shall be in accordance to this specification.
