    1. Scope

    1.1 This specification establishes the requirements for copper sheet, strip, plate, and rolled bar produced from the following coppers.

    Copper UNS No.Previous DesignationAType of Copper
    C10100 OFEOxygen-free electronic
    C10200BOF Oxygen-free without residualdeoxidants
    C10300 ...Oxygen-free extra low phosphorus
    C10400, C10500, C10700OFS Oxygen-free, silver bearing
    C10800 ...Oxygen-free low phosphorus
    C10910 ...Low oxygen
    C11000BETP Electrolytic tough pitch
    C11300, C11400, C11600BSTP Silver bearing tough pitch
    C12000 DLPPhosphorized, low residual phos-phorus
    C12200BDHP Phosphorized, high residual phos-phorus
    C12300 DPSPhosphorized, silver bearing
    C14200 DPAPhosphorus deoxidized, arsenical
    C14420 ...Tin bearing tellurium copper
    C14530 ...Tin tellurium bearing copper
    AExcept Copper UNS No. C10300 (oxygen-free extra low phosphorus), No. C10800 (oxygen-free low phosphorus), and C10910 (low oxygen), these types of copper are classified in Classification B 224.
    BSAE Specification CA101 conforms to Copper UNS No. C10100; SAE Specification CA102 conforms to the requirements for Copper UNS No. C10200; SAE Specification CA110 conforms to the requirements for Copper UNS No. C11000; SAE Specifications CA113, CA114, and CA116 conform to the requirements for Copper UNS Nos. C11300, C11400, and C11600; SAE Specification CA120 conforms to Copper UNS No. C12000; and SAE Specification CA122 conforms to the requirements for Copper UNS No. C12200.

    Note 1--Each of the coppers listed has unique properties that can make it suitable for specific applications. The purchaser should consult with the supplier to determine which copper would be best suited for the intended application.

    Note 2--Copper UNS Nos. C10400, C10500, C10700, C11300, C11400, and C11600 identify coppers with specific silver content (see Table 1 ).

    Note 3--This specification is not intended to cover material rolled to ounce-weight thicknesses. Such material is covered by Specification B370.
    Plates for locomotive fireboxes are covered by Specification B 11.
    Flat copper products with finished (rolled or drawn) edges (flat wire and strip) are also covered by Specification B72.

    1.1.1 When no specific copper is identified in the contract or purchase order, the supplier may furnish product from any of the listed coppers.

    1.2 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as the standard. The SI values given in parentheses are provided for information only.

    1.3The following safety hazards caveat only pertains to the test method portion, Section 14 of this specification: 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.
