Standard Test Methods for Chemical Analysis of Nickel, Cobalt and High-Temperature Alloys

Significance and Use

4.1 These test methods for the chemical analysis of metals and alloys are primarily intended as referee methods to test such materials for compliance with compositional specifications, particularly those under the jurisdiction of ASTM Committee B02 on Nonferrous Metals and Alloys. It is assumed that all who use these test methods will be trained analysts capable of performing common laboratory procedures skillfully and safely. It is expected that work will be performed in a properly equipped laboratory under appropriate quality control practices such as those described in Guide E882.

1.3 Other test methods applicable to the analysis of nickel alloys that may be used in lieu of or in addition to this method are Test Methods E1019, E1834, E1835, E1917, E1938, E2465, E2594, E2823.

1.4 Some of the composition ranges given in 1.1 are too broad to be covered by a single method, and therefore, these test methods contain multiple methods for some elements. The user must select the proper test method by matching the information given in the scope and interference sections of each test method with the composition of the alloy to be analyzed.

1.5 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard.

1.6 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. Specific hazard statements are given in Section 7 and in 13.4, 15.1.1, 15.1.2, 21.2, 22.5, 57.3, 114.5, 115.4, 130.4, 130.5, 138.5, and 138.6.
