New ASTM B209 2010 Edition just released on Aluminum and Aluminum-Alloy Sheet and Plate

Wednesday, July 20th, 2011

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.
