shall be made so that one specimen represents the cladding
metal in tension on one side while the other specimen
represents the cladding metal in tension on the opposite side.
Bend tests shall be made in accordance with the requirements
prescribed in the specifications for the base metal.
7.3 Bond StrengthWhen required by the purchaser, three
bend tests shall be made with the cladding metal in compression to determine the quality of the bond. Bends shall be made
in accordance with the specifications for the base metal. At
least two out of the three tests shall show not more than 50 %
separation on both edges of the bent portion. Greater separation
shall be cause for rejection.
7.4 Shear StrengthAs an alternative to the bend test
provided in 7.3 and when required by the purchaser, the
minimum shear strength of the cladding and base metals shall
be 20 000 psi (140 MPa). The shear test when specified, shall
be made in the manner indicated in Fig. 1.
7.5 Methods and practices relating to mechanical testing
required by this specification shall be in accordance with Test
Methods and Definitions A 370.

5.1.1 The steel shall be made by the open-hearth, electricfurnace (with separate degassing and refining optional), or
basic-oxygen processes, or by secondary processes whereby
steel made from these primary processes is remelted using
electroslag remelting or vacuum arc remelting processes.
5.1.2 The cladding metal may be metallurgically bonded to
the base metal by any method that will produce a clad steel that
will conform to the requirements of this specification.
5.2 Heat TreatmentUnless heat treatment is required by
the cladding material or base steel specification, the clad plate
shall be furnished in the as-rolled condition. The purchaser and
the manufacturer may agree on any other heat treatment within
the base steel specification that is mutually agreeable.
6. Chemical Composition
6.1 The composite plate may conform to any desired combination cladding metal and base metal as described in 6.2 and
6.3, and as agreed upon between the purchaser and the
manufacturer.
6.2 Cladding MetalThe nickel or nickel-base alloy cladding metal specified shall conform to the requirements as to
chemical composition prescribed for the respective metal in
Specifications B 127, B 162, B 168, B 333, B 409, B 424,
B 443, B 463, B 575, B 582, and B 625.
6.3 Base Metal The base metal may be carbon steel or
low-alloy steel conforming to the ASTM specifications for
steels for pressure vessels. The base metal shall conform to the
chemical requirements of the specification to which it is
ordered.

8. Product Analysis
8.1 Product analysis may be required on finished product.
Chemical analysis may be accomplished by wet chemical or
instrumental procedures. If wet chemical procedures are used,
millings may be taken only when the composite plate thickness
is sufficient to permit obtaining millings without danger of
contamination from the adjacent layer. If spectrometric procedures are used, the sample shall be exposed on the center line
of the cladding when there is sufficient cladding thickness
available so that there is no contamination from the adjacent
base metal.
8.2 If product analysis is specified by the purchaser, it shall
be made on a sample taken from the finished product or a
broken test specimen. For wet chemical analysis, in order to

7. Mechanical Properties
7.1 Tensile Requirements:
7.1.1 The tensile properties shall be determined by a tension
test of the composite plate for clad plates that meet all of the
following conditions. However, if the cladding is for corrosion
allowance only, the cladding may be removed before tensile
testing. The tensile properties thus determined shall be not less
than the minimum and not more than 5000 psi (35 MPa) over
the maximum prescribed in the specification for the base steel
used. All other tensile test requirements of the specification for
the base steel shall be met.
7.1.1.1 The composite gage is less than or equal to 112 in.
7.1.1.2 The specified minimum tensile strength of the base
steel is less than or equal to 70 000 psi (485 MPa).
7.1.1.3 The specified minimum yield strength of the base
steel is less than or equal to 40 000 psi (275 MPa).
7.1.2 The tensile properties shall be determined by a
tension test of the base steel only for clad plates that meet one
of the following conditions. The properties thus determined
shall meet all of the tensile test requirements for the base steel.
7.1.2.1 The composite gage is greater than 112 in.
7.1.2.2 The specified minimum tensile strength of the base
steel is greater than 70 000 psi (485 MPa).
7.1.2.3 The specified minimum yield strength of the base
steel is greater than 40 000 psi (275 MPa).
7.2 Ductility Two bend tests of the composite plate shall
be made, one with the cladding metal in tension and the other
with the cladding metal in compression, to determine the
ductility of the materials. On double-clad plates, the bend tests
