Only copper and aluminum products are covered in this chapter. Major industrial countries, such as Japan, Germany, France, and Italy, have produced nonferrous material dimensioned to metric modules for a number of years, and the material standards for nonferrous sizes reflect the available commercial sizes in these countries.
