STANDARDS ACTION REPORT

October 2018

NEW edition of the “LIGHT GREEN – CLAD SHEET” AND THE “TEAL SHEET” ARE PUBLISHED

The 2018 edition of the “Components of Clad Aluminum Alloy Products” have been published.  The newly revised publication, popularly known and the “Light Green Sheets,” supersede the 2006 edition.

The 2018 edition of the “International Alloy Designations and Chemical Composition Limits for Wrought Aluminum and Wrought Aluminum Alloys,” supersede the 2015 edition.

These documents have been extensively revised to include numerous new registrations, revisions to the previously registered product information, and the deactivation of numerous obsolete products. 

The 2018 edition of the Teal Sheets is a revision to 2015 edition. This registration record is the defining source for the designations and chemical composition limits for wrought aluminum and wrought aluminum alloys referenced in a number of standards and specifications worldwide. New in this edition is information on 20 new alloy designations, their associated chemical composition limits and nominal densities. There is one (1) newly deactivated alloy added to the list of previously registered but currently inactive alloy designations. Other information includes chemical composition limits of inactive original alloys, the Declaration of Accord on an International Designation System for Wrought Aluminum and Wrought Aluminum Alloys and a list of the Signatories to the Accord.

The 2018 edition of the Light Green Sheets is a revision to the 2006 edition.  This registration record is the source for clad aluminum alloy products registered with The Aluminum Association, and contains the registered designations, component alloys, cladding location, and other information on the registered products, as well as a list of those products that have been deactivated, a description of the designations for clad products, and the information required to register a clad product for inclusion in the registration record. One (1) new clad alloy pair was added to the list and four (4) clad alloy pairs were removed from this 2018 publication.              

To purchase a hard copy of these publications, visit the Aluminum Association’s online bookstore on the Association’s website. The cost for the printed and downloadable version of the Teal Sheet can be purchased for $80 each for non- members and $40 each for members.  The cost for the printed and downloadable version of the Light Green Sheet can be purchased for $120 each for non- members and $60 each for members. 

 
RECENT STANDARDS ACTIONS
 

The Aluminum Association completed registration of one (1) new international alloy designated 2033.

In addition, the temper registration status of 2397-T87, 7085-T711 and 7085-T721 Plate were moved from Tentative to Final.  The Aluminum Association also deactivated aluminum alloys 203.0 Sheet, 203.2 Ingot, and international designation 4007, 7064 and 7069

Note:  The chemical composition limits of the registered alloys since the last edition of the Light Green – Clad Sheet and the Teal Sheet are listed in the addenda of this publication, available at http://www.aluminum.org/resources/industry-standards.

STANDARDS MEETINGS

Subcommittee on Alloy and Temper Registrations April  23, 2019
Technical Committee on Product Standards April 24, 2019

 

The majority of the Association’s standards activities are carried out by the Technical Committee on Product Standards (TCPS) in accordance with The Aluminum Association procedures governing these activities.  Product Divisions may also form technical committees to work on specific standards that affect their products.  For example, the Electrical Division has a Task Group of AA Representatives on National Electrical Code Panels.

To request a copy of a project or to discuss placing a representative on TCPS, contact  John Weritz at standards@aluminum.org

 

Builders have safely used aluminum wiring for more than 40 years.

The National Electrical Code has permitted the use of aluminum wire since 1901, a mere four years after the first recognized national electrical code was published in 1897. AA-8000 aluminum conductors have more than 40 years of reliable field installations.
