    Abstract

    This specification covers nickel (UNS N02200), low carbon nickel (UNS N02201), and solution strengthened nickel (UNS N02211) in the form of hot-worked, cold-worked, or annealed rods and bars of round, square, hexagonal, or rectangular solid section. The material shall conform to the chemical composition limits specified for nickel, copper, iron, manganese, carbon, silicon, and sulfur. Mechanical requirements including tensile strength, yield strength, and elongation are given for specific conditions and diameter or distance between parallel surfaces. Chemical analysis, tension test, and hardness test shall be performed.

    This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard. It is informational only and not an official part of the standard; the full text of the standard itself must be referred to for its use and application. ASTM does not give any warranty express or implied or make any representation that the contents of this abstract are accurate, complete or up to date.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This specification2 covers nickel (UNS N02200),3 low-carbon nickel (UNS N02201),3 and solution-strengthened nickel (UNS N02211) in the form of hot-worked and cold-worked rod and bar in the conditions shown in Table 1.

    1.2 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.

    1.3 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, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

    1.4 This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
