This specification2 covers aluminum and aluminumalloy flat sheet, coiled sheet, and plate in the alloys (Note 1) and tempers shown in Tables 2 and 3, and in the following finishes:
Plate in all alloys and sheet in heat-treatable alloys: mill finish.
Sheet in nonheat-treatable alloys: mill finish, one-side bright mill finish, standard one-side bright finish, and standard two-sides bright finish.
Alloy and temper designations are in accordance with ANSI H35.1/H35.1(M). The equivalent Unified Numbering System alloy designations are those of Table 1 preceded by A9, for example, A91100 for aluminum 1100 in accordance with Practice E527.
NOTE 1—Throughout this specification, use of the term alloy in the general sense includes aluminum as well as aluminum alloy.
NOTE 2—See Specification B632/B632M for tread plate.
NOTE 3—See Specification B928/B928M for 5xxx-H116 and 5xxx- H321 aluminum alloys containing 3 % or more nominal magnesium and intended for marine service and similar environments. Other alloy-temper products listed in this specification, which do not require the additional corrosion testing/capability called out in ASTM B928/B928M, may be suitable for marine and similar environment applications.
For acceptance criteria for inclusion of new aluminum and aluminum alloys in this specification, see Annex A2.
This specification is the inch-pound companion to Specification B209M; therefore, no SI equivalents are presented in the specification.
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.
