1.1 This practice describes the sampling of magnesium and magnesium-base alloys to obtain a chill-cast sample suitable for quantitative atomic emission spectrochemical analysis. The disk in the region to be excited is representative of the melt and gives a repeatability of results that approach that of the reference materials used.
1.2 This practice describes the procedure for representative sampling of molten metal.
1.3 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses after SI units are provided for information only and are not considered 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 establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. Specific Warning Statements are given in 5.1.
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.
