ASTM  B209

Revision / Edition: 06      Chg:      Date: 07/01/06


Document Abstract
This specification2 covers aluminum and aluminum-alloy flat sheet, coiled sheet, and plate in the alloys (Note 1) and tempers shown in Tables 2 and 3, and in the following finishes:

Plate in all alloys and sheet in heat-treatable alloys: mill finish.

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 alloy in 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/ B 928M, may be suitable for marine and similar environment applications.

Alloy and temper designations are in accordance with ANSI H35.1/H35.1(M). The equivalent Unified Numbering System alloy designations are those of Table 1 preceded by A9, for example, A91100 for aluminum 1100 in accordance with Practice E 527.

A complete metric companion to Specification B 209 has been developed—Specification B 209M; therefore, no metric equivalents are presented in this specification.

For acceptance criteria for inclusion of new aluminum and aluminum alloys in this specification, see Annex A2.

*A Summary of Changes section appears at the end of this standard.

2 For ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code applications see related Specification SB-209 in Section II of that Code.
