1.       Elongation in 5.65v/So or 50mm. The test for elongation is not required for product of such dimensions that a standard test piece cannot be taken.

2.       0.2% Proof stress not determined or guaranteed unless specifically requested.

3.       Annealed (-0 temper) product, upon solution heat treatment or solution treatment and artificial ageing, to be capable of developing the mechanical properties to T42 or T62 temper material, respectively.

4.       Product heat-treated from any temper by the purchaser should attain the mechanical properties applicable to this temper

5.      T52 requirements but with improved formability.
