ASTM B / BM – 18 Standard Specification for Copper-Beryllium Alloy Rod and Bar

Materials and Manufacture 6. C, C, or C, cast and worked and of such purity and soundness as to be suitable for processing into the products prescribed herein. These products meet property requirements in Table 3 and normally require no further heat treatment by the user. Precipitation Heat Treatment 9.


These special combinations of properties such as increased ductility, electrical conductivity, dimensional accuracy, endurance life, and resistance to elastic drift and hysteresis in springs, may be obtained by special precipitation-hardening heat treatments.

The mechanical requirements of Table 3 do not apply to such special heat treatments.

Further thermal treatments of these tempers are not normally required. Mechanical Property Requirements The tensile strength requirements shall be prescribed in Table 2 and Table 3 after precipitation heat treatment in accordance with 8. The hardness requirements shall be as prescribed in Table 2 for solution heat treated or solution heat treated and cold worked and in Table 4 after prescribed heat treatment. The tension test should not be made except when indicated by the purchaser.
