Standard Specification for Copper-Tungsten Electrical Contact Material

Abstract

This specification covers electrical contact components made from copper tungsten by powder metallurgical procedures. The material shall conform to the chemical composition limits as agreed upon between the manufacturer and the user using the newest edition of Annual Book of ASTM standards, or any other approved method agreed upon. Qualification tests for determination of physical properties shall be performed on production parts, wherever practical or applicable. The tests shall be determined after consideration of the function of the part.

Scope

1.1 This specification covers electrical contact components made from copper tungsten by powder metallurgical procedures.

1.2 This specification covers compositions within the copper tungsten system normally specified by users of contacts.

1.3 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.

1.4 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 become familiar with all hazards including those identified in the appropriate Data Safety Sheet (SDS) for this product/material as provided by the manufacturer, to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices, and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

1.5 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.
