    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    CONTAINED IN VOL. 01.03, 2017 Defines general requirements that shall apply to stainless wire and wire rods.

    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    1.1This specification covers general requirements that shall apply to stainless wire and wire rods. Wire rods are a semifinished product intended primarily for the manufacture of wire. Wire is intended primarily for cold forming, including coiling, stranding, weaving, heading and machining as covered under the latest revision of each of the following ASTM specifications: A313/A313M, A368, A478, A492, A493, A580/A580M and A581/A581M.

    1.2In case of conflicting requirements, the individual material specification and this general requirement specification shall prevail in the order named.

    1.3General requirements for flat products other than wire are covered in Specification A480/A480M.

    1.4General requirements for bar and billet products are covered in Specification A484/A484M.

    1.5The values stated in either SI units or inch-pound units are to be regarded separately as standard. The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in non-conformance with the standard.

    1.6Unless the order specifies the applicable metric specification designation, the material shall be furnished in the inch-pound units.
