Aluminium and aluminium alloys - Specifications for wrought and cast products for marine applications (shipbuilding, marine and offshore)
This European Standard specifies properties and technical conditions for inspection and delivery of wrought and cast aluminium and aluminium alloy products recommended for marine applications, including shipbuilding and offshore applications.
Additional information is given about high magnesium alloys, with special regard to their sensitivity to intergranular and exfoliation corrosion.
This European Standard is intended to be used in conjunction with relevant European, national or international regulations as applicable, to which it comes in support.
For products intended to be used in marine constructions to be classified by a Classification Society, the relevant requirements of this Society apply.
This European Standard covers:
- wrought products in aluminium alloys (see Clause 6);
- castings in aluminium alloys (see Clause 7).
Information is given in Annex A to guide the user in the selection of aluminium and aluminium alloys and tempers for various applications.
This European Standard does not cover:
- execution and design, covered by the rules of the Classification Societies or EN 1090 3 and EN 1999 1 1 to EN 1999 1 5;
- welding, covered by EN 1011 4.
