    This specification covers wrought unalloyed tungsten plate, sheet, and foil. The various tungsten flat products covered by this specification shall be formed with the conventional rolling, forging, or extrusion equipment, normally found in primary ferrous and nonferrous plants. The ingot metal shall be consolidated employing either the powder metallurgy or vacuum-arc-casting process. The materials shall conform to the required chemical composition for carbon, oxygen, nitrogen, iron, nickel, and silicon. Plate, sheet, and foil shall be furnished in the following metallurgical condition: hot-rolled, stress relieved, and cold-rolled. The materials shall also conform to the required permissible variations in physical dimensions such as thickness, width, length, and flatness.
