Standard Specification for Aluminum-Alloy Bar, Rod, and Wire
|Publication Date:||27 May 1983|
|ICS Code (Aluminium products):||77.150.10|
This specification2 covers rolled or cold-finished bar, rod, and wire in alloys and tempers as shown in Table 2.
Alloy and temper designations are in accordance with ANSI H35.1. The equivalent UNS alloy designations are those of Table I preceded by A9, for example, A91100 for aluminum 1100 in accordance with Recommended Practice E 527.
NOTE 1-The term "cold finished" is used to indicate the type of surface finish, sharpness of angles, and dimensional tolerances produced by drawing through a die.
NOTE 2-See Specification B 221 for Aluminum Alloy Extruded Bars, Rods, Shapes, and Tubes,3 and Specification B 316 for Aluminum-Alloy Rivet and Cold-Heading Wire and Rods.3
NOTE 3-A complete metric companion to Specification B 211 has been developed-B 211 M; therefore, no metric equivalents are presented in this specification.
2 For ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code applications see related Specification SB-211 in Section II of that Code.
