ASTM A for Stainless Steel Wire and Wire Rods for Cold Heading and Cold Forging

General Requirements for Delivery 4. Resistance to Intergranular Corrosion 8. Last previous edition A — The following coatings may be specied: Users of this standard are expressly advised that determination of the validity of any such patent rights, and the risk of infringement of such rights, are entirely their own responsibility. For smaller sizes, similar mechanical properties apply to ferritic and martensitic grades; however the producer should be consulted regarding somewhat higher tensile properties applicable to austenitic grades.

The following lubricants may be specied: A number in parentheses indicates the year of last reapproval. The producer should be consulted when material is required to tensile strength ranges asrm than those specied. Your comments will receive careful consideration at a meeting of the responsible technical committee, which you may attend.


Originally published as A — All austenitic grades in the annealed condition or annealed and lightly drafted condition shall be capable of passing the criteria set by this specification. ASTM does not asgm any warranty express or implied or make any representation that the contents of this abstract are accurate, complete or up to date.

Your comments are invited either for revision of this standard or for additional standards and should be addressed to ASTM Headquarters. This standard is subject to asmt at any time by the responsible technical committee and must be reviewed every ve years and if not revised, either reapproved or withdrawn.

The SI equivalents are in parentheses and may be approximate. Packaging and Package Marking 9. Soap is generally used. B Product analysis tolerance over the maximum limit for carbon and nitrogen to be 0.

A superscript epsilon e indicates an editorial change since the last revision or reapproval. Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard.

This standard has been approved for use by agencies of the Department of Defense. The steel shall conform to the required chemical composition requirements. This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard. This specification covers cold-finished and hot-finished stainless steel wire and wire rods for cold heading or cold forging for applications, such as fasteners, where corrosion resistance is a factor.


ICS Number Code The material shall also conform to the requirements as to mechanical properties. Copyright ASTM Standard Specication for Stainless Steel Wire and Wire Rods for Cold Heading and Cold Forging1 This standard is issued under the xed designation A ; the number immediately following the designation indicates the year of original adoption or, in the case of revision, the year of last revision.

Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard. The American Society for Testing and Materials takes no position respecting the validity of any patent rights asserted in connection with any item mentioned in this standard.

NOTE 1—A typical ordering description is as follows: An electroplated copper coating is often used. It is informational only and not an official part of the standard; the full text of the standard itself must be referred to for its use and application.

Material can be manufactured to tensile strength ranges other than those shown in Table 2.
