Standard Specification for Aluminum and Aluminum-Alloy Bar, Rod, and Wire
|Publication Date:||1 November 2003|
|ICS Code (Aluminium products):||77.150.10|
NOTE 1 - Throughout this specification use of the term alloy in the general sense includes aluminum as well as aluminum alloy.
NOTE 2 - 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 3 - See Specification B 221 for aluminum and aluminum-alloy extruded bars, rods, wire, shapes, and tubes; and Specification B 316/B 316M for aluminum and aluminum-alloy rivet and cold-heading wire and rods.
Alloy and temper designations are in accordance with ANSI H35.1. The equivalent UNS alloy designations are those of Table 1 preceded by A9, for example, A91100 for aluminum 1100 in accordance with Practice E 527.
A complete metric companion to Specification B 211 has been developed - B 211M; therefore, no metric equivalents are presented in this specification.
For acceptance criteria for inclusion of new aluminum and aluminum alloys in this specification, see Annex A2.
