ASTM Invites Experts to Help Revise Thermostat Standards

March 13, 2018
The standards were developed by ASTM International's nonferrous metals and alloys committee.

ASTM International’s committee on nonferrous metals and alloys is inviting experts in the specialty alloys and thermostat metals industry to join in the revision of two important ASTM International thermostat standards. The standards were developed by the nonferrous metals and alloys committee.

The specification for thermostat metal sheet and strip covers metals that are used for temperature-sensitive elements of devices for controlling, compensating or indicating temperature. The specification for thermostat component alloys describes requirements for alloys that are used as components in the manufacture of bonded multi-component thermostat metal strip.

The next meeting of the ASTM International committee on nonferrous metals and alloys is May 21-23 in San Diego, Calif.
