Chapter 11
Nonferrous Material


Only copper and aluminum products are covered in this chapter. Major industrial countries, such as Japan, Germany, France, and Italy, have produced nonferrous material dimensioned to metric modules for a number of years, and the material standards for nonferrous sizes reflect the available commercial sizes in these countries.

The American National Standards Institute issued American National Standards B32.100-2005 for preferred metric sizes for flat, round, square, rectangular, and hexagonal metal products. The preferred metric sizes were the result of the informational input of representatives from industries and professional societies, as well as the experience of other countries where the metric system has been in use.
