historical
 Organization: ASTM International Publication Date: 1 October 2008 Status: historical Page Count: 6 ICS Code (Copper products): 77.150.30
##### scope:

1.1 This specification establishes requirements for copper alloy sand castings for valve applications. Nominal compositions of the alloys defined by this specification are shown in Table 1.

Note 1-This specification does not cover Copper Alloy UNS Nos. C83600, C92200, C96200, and C96400. These alloys are also used in valve applications. They are covered by the following specifications:

 C83600: B 62 C92200: B 61 C96200: B 369 C96400: B 369

1.2 The castings produced under this specification are used in products which may be manufactured in advance and supplied for sale from stock by the manufacturer.

1.3 Units-The values stated in either SI units or inch-pound units are to be regarded separately as standard. The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in non-conformance with the standard.
