Over deze norm
1.1 This specification covers aluminum and aluminum-alloy extruded bar, rod, wire, profile, and tube in the aluminum alloys (Note 1) and tempers shown in Table 1.
Note 1—Throughout this specification, the use of the term alloy in the general sense includes aluminum as well as aluminum alloy.
Note 2—For rolled or cold-finished bar and rod refer to Specification B 211
Note 3—Structural pipe and tube produced in accordance with B 221 is not intended for fluid-carrying applications involving pressure. Refer to either Specification B 210 or B 241/B 241M, as appropriate, for seamless pipe and tube used in fluid-carrying applications involving pressure.
1.2 Alloy and temper designations are in accordance with ANSI H35.1. The equivalent Unified Numbering System alloy designations are those of Table 2 preceded by A9; for example, A91100 for Aluminum 1100 in accordance with Practice E 527
1.3 For acceptance criteria for inclusion of new aluminum and aluminum alloys in this specification, see Annex A2.
1.4 A complete metric companion to B 221 has been developed—B 221M; therefore, no metric equivalents are presented in this specification.
