This SAE Standard covers minimum requirements for soft (061) annealed seamless copper tube intended for automotive and general purposes. (Comparable specifications are ASTM B 75. Other copper tube is covered in SAE J463.) The tube shall be cold drawn to size and after forming shall be annealed in such a manner as to produce a finished product which will meet all requirements of this standard.
This standard has not been updated in approximately fifteen years and is most likely considerably out of date. FCCTC-SC5 Metallic Tubing Subcommittee is not currently populated with members from the user or manufacturing community to offer expertise to accomplish this task. It is the FCCTC-SC5 Subcommittee decision to ballot this document for cancellation.
