Standard Specification for Stainless Steel Wire
|Publication Date:||1 March 2018|
|ICS Code (Steel wire, wire ropes and link chains):||77.140.65|
This specification covers stainless steel wire, except the free-machining types. It includes round, square, octagon, hexagon, and shape wire in coils only for the more commonly used types of stainless steels for general corrosion resistance and high-temperature service. For bars in straightened and cut lengths, see Specifications A276 or A479/A479M.
NOTE 1-For free-machining stainless wire, designed especially for optimum machinability, see Specification A581/A581M.
Unless the order specifies the applicable "M" specification designation, the material shall be furnished to the inchpound units.
The 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.
This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
