Review of Standards. To keep abreast of progress in industry, Joint Australian/ New Zealand Standards are subject to periodic review and are kept up to date by the issue of amendments or new editions as necessary. It is important therefore that Standards users ensure that they are in possession of the latest edition, and any amendments thereto. Full details of all Joint Standards and related publications will be found in the Standards Australia and Standards New Zealand Catalogue of Publications; this information is supplemented each month by the magazines The Australian Standard and Standards New Zealand, which subscribing members receive, and which give details of new publications, new editions and amendments, and of withdrawn Standards. Suggestions for improvements to Joint Standards, addressed to the head office of either Standards Australia or Standards New Zealand, are welcomed. Notification of any inaccuracy or ambiguity found in a Joint Australian/New Zealand Standard should be made without delay in order that the matter may be investigated and appropriate action taken.

This Standard was issued in draft form for comment as DR 96327.

PREFACE
This Standard was prepared by the Joint Standards Australia / Standards New Zealand Committee MT/3, Aluminium and Aluminium Alloys, to supersede AS 1867 1986. The objective of this revision is to upgrade the requirements for wrought aluminium and aluminium alloy drawn tubes for general engineering purposes. During the preparation of this Standard cognizance was taken of the publication, Aluminium Standards, Data and design Wrought products , published in 1994 by the Aluminium Development Council of Australia. Cognizance was also taken of the following International Standards which partly cover drawn tubes: ISO 6363 6363-1 6363-2 Wrought aluminium and aluminium alloy cold-drawn rods/bars and tubes Part 1 (1988): Technical conditions for inspection and delivery Part 2 (1993): Mechanical properties

These International Standards were not considered to be appropriate replacements for AS 1867 for the following reasons: (a) (b) They include requirements for rods and bars in addition to tubes. They refer to ISO R209 for chemical composition, to ISO 6363.6 and ISO 6363.7 for dimensional requirements and tolerances, and to a number of other International Standards for definitions and test requirements. The preference of Australian/New Zealand industry is to contain the requirements for drawn aluminium and aluminium alloy tubes in the one Standard.

(c)

Statements expressed in mandatory terms in notes to tables and figures are deemed to be requirements of this Standard. The term informative has been used in this Standard to define the application of the appendix to which it applies. An informative appendix is only for information and guidance.
