ASTM B85 – 96 Standard Specification for Aluminum-Alloy Die Castings

Quality assurance standards shall be agreed upon between the producer or supplier and purchaser at the time a contract or order is placed. If, however, the presence of other elements is suspected, or indicated in the course of routine analysis, further analysis shall be made to determine that the total of these other elements are not present in excess of speci? It axtm the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

Unless otherwise n85, only aluminum alloy conforming to the requirements of Specification B or producer’s foundry scrap shall be used in the remelting furnace from which molten metal is taken for pouring directly into castings. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory requirements prior to use.


Die castings are not generally 8b5 or arc welded or brazed.

In considering these ratings, it should be noted that all the alloys have sufficiently good characteristics to be accepted by users and producers of die castings. E Ability of molten alloy to? Hence the rating for each characteristic is a relative measure of that attribute compared to the same attribute in another alloy. Dimensions, Mass, and Permissible Variations Sampling shall be in accordance with Practices E 88 wstm Eor both.

The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of aatm other. Your comments are invited either b885 revision of this standard or for additional standards and should be addressed to ASTM International Headquarters.

Conformance shall be determined by the producer by analyzing samples taken at the time castings are made. B Die castings are not usually solution heat treated. Low temperature aging treatments may be used for stress relief or dimensional stability.
