OS-1-4 Harmonized Material Data Sheet

Date: June 8, 2016

The new harmonized material data sheet provides a standardized protocol that specifies the conditions under which a material has been fabricated and tested in laboratory settings. Suppliers who adopt the ARPM system will be required to provide the same test data on every material they introduce to market, thus helping to establish a comparative material foundation that does not exist today. OS-1-4 does not replace the OEM's individual specification demands but provides a rapid way to evaluate the basic suitability of materials
