ASTM B209-10, titled “Standard Specification for Aluminum and Aluminum-Alloy Sheet and Plate,” has just been released this month. The specification covers aluminum and aluminum-alloy flat sheet, coiled sheet, and plate in particular alloys and tempers.
Plate in all alloys and sheet in heat-treatable alloys covered by this document have a mill finish. Sheet in nonheat-treatable alloys 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 covered by ASTM B209 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 are determined through specified processes.
There’s a complete metric companion to this document, ASTM B 209M, so no metric equivalents are included.
