Metallurgical Tests Performed on Flat Rolled Stainless Steel and Aluminum
Tensile - ASTM E8:
Test includes tensile, yield and elongation (specify test direction). Thickness range annealed and tempered - 0.006" to 0.187".
Rockwell Hardness Testing - ASTM E18:
Rockwell B and C and Rockwell Superficial T and N scales. Test includes average of 3 reading - conversions per ASTM E140. Thickness minimum annealed and tempered - 0.010".
Bend - ASTM E290:
Testing conducted with the bend parallel or perpendicular to rolling direction (specify test direction). 180 Degree bend thickness maximum (annealed 0.150", tempered 0.050").
Surface Finish Testing - ASME B46.1:
Ra, Rz, Rq - Please specify test direction. No thickness restrictions - sample must be flat.
Chemistry (200, 300 & 400 series stainless steels) Per ASTM A751 and ASTM E1086:
Chemistry (1000, 2000, 3000, 5000, 6000 and 7000 series aluminum) per ASTM E716 and ASTM E1251.
Analysis is performed using optical emission spectroscopy (OES). Complete analysis to ASTM reporting requirements including C & N. Thickness minimum 0.010"
