Each grade of alloyed aluminium ingot for remelting shall be in accordance with the designations and
chemical composition specified in Table 1.
NOTE For unalloyed aluminium ingots, see EN 576.
For alloys that are not in Table 1, the writing rules for designations and chemical compositions, as
specified in EN 1780-1, EN 1780-2 and EN 1780-3, shall be applied.
