This standard is applicable to hard-drawn aluminium wires for the manufacture of stranded conductors for overhead power transmission purposes. It specifies the mechanical and electrical properties of wires in the diameter range 1.25 mm to 5.00 mm.
This specification covers cold-drawn steel wire to be used as such, or in fabricated form, for the reinforcement of concrete, in sizes not less than 0.080 in. in diameter.
This specification covers the supply of hard drawn spring wire of the highest possible quality for applications only where materials to B.S.1408 and B.S.2803 will not be satisfactory.
