BS EN 485 is the European standard comprising the following parts under the general title, Aluminium and aluminium alloys. Sheet, strip and plate.
The following changes have been made:
- In all tables, the tempers have been separated in rows.
- Values for temper H112 have been modified.
This European Standard specifies the mechanical properties of wrought aluminium and wrought aluminium alloy sheet, strip and plate for general engineering applications.
It does not apply to semi-finished rolled products in coiled form to be subjected to further rolling (reroll stock) or to special products such as corrugated, embossed, painted, sheets and strips or to special applications such as aerospace, can stock, finstock, for which mechanical properties are specified in separate European Standards.
For the specification of chemical composition limits of the alloys, refer to BS EN 573-3 Aluminium and aluminium alloys. Chemical composition and form of wrought products. Chemical composition and form of products.
Temper designations are defined in Annex B, in compliance with the provisions of BS EN 515 Aluminium and aluminium alloys. Wrought products. Temper designations
