This part of ISO 16143 specifies requirements for stainless steel wire for common use for which no product standard exists. It includes round, flat, and shaped wire (such as square, hexagonal, or rectangular wire), made of the most commonly used types of stainless steels for general corrosion resistance and high-temperature service. The wire can be supplied in coils or in straightened and cut lengths.
NOTE Steel wire made of corrosion-resistant stainless steel is manufactured from steels mentioned in ISO 16143-2, and steel wire intended for high-temperature purposes is manufactured from steels mentioned in ISO 4955.
In addition to this part of ISO 16143, the general technical delivery requirements of ISO 404 are applicable.
Excluded from this part of ISO 16143 are
- wire for cold heading,
- welding wire, and
- any wire for which a specific product standard exists.
