|Publication Date:||1 April 2017|
|ICS Code (Superconductivity and conducting materials):||29.050|
This specification covers the requirements for rod in diameters from 1⁄4 to 13⁄8 in. (6.4 to 35 mm) produced from high conductivity coppers listed in Table 1, namely, electrolytic tough-pitch, oxygen-free, or fire-refined high conductivity coppers, and are suitable for further fabrication into electrical conductors.
The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.
