    Rationale

    B0897-2013 Configuration of Zinc and Zinc Alloy Jumbo, Block, Half Block, and Slab Ingot Need to develop a range of sizes and weights for Standard Ingots used in the Zinc die casting industry and other related zinc industries. The preliminary Plan: Survey of industry for producers of ingots used for die casting alloys and collate the responses. The members discussed that this project will ultimately affect B897 and B860 (currently requiring and being balloted) as well as many of the zinc die casting ingot specifications. The committee discussed the time frame and all agreed that this may be a task group that could extend to a a year or two.
