ASTM B209 — Standard Specification for Aluminum and Aluminum-Alloy Sheet and Plate
Description of Standard
This specification covers aluminum and aluminum-alloy flat sheet, coiled sheet, and plate in particular alloys and tempers described. Plate in all alloys and sheet in heat-treatable alloys shall have a mill finish. Sheet in nonheat-treatable alloys shall have any one of the following finishes: mill finish, one-side bright mill finish, standard one-side bright finish, and standard two-sides bright finish. The sheet and plate shall conform to the specified requirements for tensile properties. The heat treatment capability, reheat-treatment capability, bend properties, stress-corrosion resistance, and exfoliation-corrosion resistance of the sheet and plate shall be determined through specified processes.
This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard. It is informational only and not an official part of the standard; the full text of the standard itself must be referred to for its use and application. ASTM does not give any warranty express or implied or make any representation that the contents of this abstract are accurate, complete or up to date.
1.1 This specification covers aluminum and aluminum-alloy flat sheet, coiled sheet, and plate in the alloys (Note 1) and tempers shown in Tables 2 and 3, in the following finishes:
1.1.1 Plate in all alloys and sheet in heat-treatable alloys: mill finish.
1.1.2 Sheet in nonheat-treatable alloys: mill finish, one-side bright mill finish, standard one-side bright finish, and standard two-sides bright finish. Note 1 - Throughout this specification, use of the term alloyin the general sense includes aluminum as well as aluminum alloy.Note 2 - See Specification B 632/B 632M for tread plate.Note 3 - See Specification B 928/B 928M 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 B 928/B928M, may be suitable for marine and similar environment applications.
1.2 Alloy and temper designations are in accordance with ANSI H35.1/H35.1(M). The equivalent Unified Numbering System alloy designations are those of preceded by A9, for example, A91100 for aluminum 1100 in accordance with Practice E 527.
1.3 A complete metric companion to Specification B 209 has been developed-Specification B 209M; therefore, no metric equivalents are presented in this specification.
1.4 For acceptance criteria for inclusion of new aluminum and aluminum alloys in this specification, see Annex A2.
