1.1 This specification establishes the requirements for wrought and fabricated shapes made from Copper UNS2 No. C10100, conforming to the chemical requirements of Specification B170, Grade 1, and suitable for use in electron devices.

1.2 The requirements of this specification are in addition to those prescribed in the following product specifications appropriate to the material being ordered: B1, B2, B3, B75/B75M, B152/B152M, B170, B187/B187M, B188, B272, and B372. In case of conflict, however, this specification shall take precedence.

1.3 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.

1.3.1 Exception—grain sizes are in metric units and are standard.

1.4 The following safety hazard caveat applies to sections 17.4, 17.5 and 18.7 of this specification: This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
