    Bismuth, less than0.01
    Cadmium, less than0.0025
    Carbon, max0.03
    Cobalt, max1.00
    Copper, max1.00
    Hydrogen, max0.003
    Iron, max0.15
    Lead, less than0.01
    Manganese, less than0.20
    Nickel, min98.0
    Nitrogen, less than0.50
    Oxygen, less than0.03
    Phosphorus, less than0.005
    Selenium, less than0.0010
    Silicon, less than0.005
    Silver, less than0.01

    1.2 These test methods may be used to determine the following elements by the methods indicated below:

    Antimony, Arsenic, Bismuth, Cadmium, Lead, Selenium, Silver, Tellurium, Tin, and Thallium by the Electrothermal Atomic Absorption Method
    Bismuth, Cadmium, Cobalt, Copper, Iron, Lead, Manganese, Silver, and Zinc by the Flame Atomic Absorption Method
    Carbon, Total, by the Combustion-Instrumental Method
    Nickel by the Dimethylglyoxime Gravimetric Method
    Nitrogen by the Inert Gas Fusion Thermal Conductivity Method
    Oxygen by the Inert Gas Fusion Method
    Sulfur by the Infrared Absorption Method
    Sulfur by the Methylene Blue Spectrophotometric Method After Generation of Hydrogen Sulfide

    1.3 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.

    1.4 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. For specific precautions, see Section 6.
