|Publication Date:||10 May 1999|
|ICS Code (Aluminium products):||77.150.10|
1. Scope *
1.1 This specification covers rolled or cold-finished bar, rod, and wire in alloys (Note 1) and tempers as shown in Table 1.
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 for aluminum and aluminum-alloy rivet and cold-heading wire and rods.
1.2 Alloy and temper designations are in accordance with ANSI H35.1. The equivalent UNS alloy designations are those of Table 2 preceded by A9, for example, A91100 for aluminum 1100 in accordance with Practice E 527.
1.3 A complete metric companion to Specification B 211 has been developed--B 211M; therefore, no metric equivalents are presented in this specification.
1.4 For acceptance criteria for inclusion of new aluminum and aluminum alloys in this specification, see Annex A2.
