Standard Specification for 8000 Series Aluminum Alloy Wire for Electrical Purposes-Annealed and Intermediate Tempers
Includes all amendments and changes through Reapproval Notice , 2015
Published By:ASTM International (ASTM)
This specification covers 8000 series aluminum alloys fabricated into round wires in annealed or intermediate tempers suitable for stranding into conductors or for solid single conductors, usually to be insulated.
The SI values for resistivity are regarded as standard. For all other properties, the inch-pound units are regarded as standard and the SI units may be approximate.
NOTE 1—Aluminum alloys capable of meeting the requirements of this specification are listed in Table 1.
NOTE 2—The alloy and temper designations conform to ANSI H35.1. Unified Numbering System alloy designations are listed in Table 1 in accordance with Practice E527.
NOTE 3—Certain aluminum alloys may be subject to patent rights. U.S. patents numbers are shown in Table 1
This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
