Standard Specification for Hard-Drawn Copper Alloy Wires for Electric Conductors
|Publication Date:||10 April 2000|
|ICS Code (Wires):||29.060.10|
1.1 This specification covers hard-drawn round copper alloy wires for electric conductors.
1.2 The copper alloy wires shall be made in any one of ten distinct alloys designated 8.5 to 85 in accordance with their increasing conductivities or designated by assigned UNS numbers as follows:
NOTE 1--The UNS system for copper and copper alloys (see Practice E 527) is a simple expansion of the former standard designation system accomplished by the addition of a prefix "C" and a suffix "00". The suffix can be used to accommodate composition variations of the base alloy.
1.3 The SI values of density and resistivity are to be regarded as standard. For all other properties the inch-pound values are to regarded as standard, and the SI values may be approximate.
