This specification establishes the requirements for rolled copper sheets and strips in flat lengths or coils of ounce-weight thicknesses for roofing, flashing, gutters, downspouts, and general sheet metal work in building construction. Products produced to this specification are not intended for electrical applications. Materials are available in the following tempers: O60 (soft), H00 (cold-rolled), H01 (cold-rolled, high yield), H02 (half hard), H03 (three-quarter hard), and H04 (hard). Products shall be sampled and prepared, then tested accordingly to examine their conformance to dimensional (mass, thickness, length, width, weight, and straightness), mechanical (tensile and yield strength, and Rockwell hardness), chemical composition, and grain recrystallization requirements.
