Current edition approved Jan. ICS Number Code 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 ast grades.
Last previous edition A — A number in parentheses indicates the year of last reapproval. Packaging and Package Marking 9. Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard.
The following lubricants may be specied: This standard has been approved for use by agencies of the Department of Defense. Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard. The SI equivalents are in parentheses and may be approximate.
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. Originally published as A — Your comments will receive careful consideration at a meeting of the responsible technical committee, which you may attend.
An electroplated copper coating is often used. Soap is generally used.
The producer should be consulted when material is required to tensile strength ranges other than those specied. A superscript epsilon e indicates an editorial change since the last revision or reapproval. Your comments are axtm either for revision of this standard or for additional standards and should be addressed to ASTM Headquarters.
