    ASTM E478 – 08 is of great significance as it is considered as a reference method to test materials for compliance with compositional specifications. It is often performed by trained specialists who are capable of performing laboratory procedures skillfully and safely.


    The analytical procedures appear in the following sections:

    Test MethodSection
    Aluminum by the Carbamate Extraction-Ethyl-Enedinitrilotetracetate Titrimetric Test               Method [2 % to 12 %]71-78
    Copper by the Combined ElectrodepositionGravimetric and Oxalyldihydrazide Photomet-ric Test Method [50 %, minimum]10-18
    Iron by the 1,10-Phenanthroline PhotometricTest Method [0.003 % to 1.25 %]19-28
    Lead by Atomic Absorption Spectrometry                [0.002 % to 15 %]90-100
    Lead by the Ethylenedinitrilotetraacetic Acid(EDTA) Titrimetric Test Method [2.0 % to30.0 %]29-36
    Nickel by the Dimethylglyoxime Extraction Pho-tometric Test Method [0.03 % to 5.0 %]37-46
    Nickel by the Dimethylglyoxime GravimetricTest Method [4 % to 50 %]55-62
    Nickel by the Dimethylglyoxime GravimetricTest Method [4 % to 50 %]55-62
    Silver in Silver-Bearing Copper by Atomic Ab-sorption Spectrometry [0.01 % to 0.12 %]101-112
    Tin by the Iodometric Titration Test Method[0.5 % to 20 %]63-70
    Tin by the Phenylfluorone Photometric TestMethod [0.01 % to 1.0 %]113-123
    Zinc by Atomic Absorption Spectrometry [0.2 %to 2 %]79-89
    Zinc by the Ethylenedinitrilotetraacetic Acid(EDTA) Titrimetric Test Method [2 % to 40 %]47-54


    In this way, by performing ASTM E478 – 08, chemical analysis of copper alloys can be done.
