This webinar is the first in the new technical webinar series for extrusion users and customers. ASTM B221 and B221M is a material specification standard for aluminum extruded bars, rods, wire, profiles and tubes. The requirements are in place to give the purchaser confidence that the product is produced to their expectations and are consistent with the same products regardless of the producer.

This webinar provides an overview of the ASTM B221/B221M standard and walks through pertinent sections of the standard to help the learner better understand the ordering process for aluminum extrusions when ordering to an ASTM standard, and what to expect from the manufacturer. Sections covered include Tensile Properties, Heat Treatment and Tempers, Chemistries, Dimensional Tolerances, Certifications, Quality and more.

Learning Objectives
Following this webinar the learner will be able to:

1. Know where to find the ASTM standard documents
2. Understand which products are covered by ASTM B221 and B221M
3. Identify the Basic Temper Designations
4. Know where to find ordering requirements within the standard
5. Understand which ordering requirements have to be specified and which are implied
6. Know how to handle issues that are not covered by the standard
