ASTM B209 Standard Specification for Aluminum and Aluminum Alloy-Sheet Plate

ASTM B209 is a widely recognized standard specification that outlines the requirements for aluminum and aluminum-alloy sheets (flat and coiled) and plates. It covers various grades, dimensions, and mechanical properties of aluminum materials, providing essential guidelines for manufacturers, users, and distributors in the industry.


Introduction to ASTM B209

ASTM B209 establishes the standard specifications for aluminum and aluminum-alloy sheet and plate, ensuring consistent quality and performance of these materials in various industries, including aerospace, automotive, construction, and manufacturing. Aluminum and its alloys are extensively used in numerous applications due to their desirable properties, such as lightweight, corrosion resistance, and excellent formability.

ASTM B209 test method is useful for qualitative characterization, research, development, and specification purposes.

ASTM B209 Test Method

The ASTM B209 specifies the chemical composition and mechanical properties of aluminum and aluminum alloys used for sheet and plate manufacturing. It defines the permissible alloy types, temper designations, and conditions of the materials. The standard also includes requirements for the surface finish, flatness, dimensional tolerances, and other physical properties.

Mechanical TestingASTM B209 outlines the test methods to assess the mechanical properties of aluminum sheet and plate. These tests include tensile strength, yield strength, elongation, and bend tests. The standard specifies the testing procedures, specimen preparation, and calculation methods to ensure accurate and consistent results.
Sampling and CertificationThe standard outlines the sampling methods for selecting representative samples. It also addresses the certification and marking requirements to provide traceability and quality assurance.
