    1. Scope

    1.1 This specification covers stainless steel wire, except the free-machining types. It includes round, square, octagon, hexagon, and shape wire in coils only for the more commonly used types of stainless steels for general corrosion resistance and high-temperature service. For bars in straightened and cut lengths, see Specifications A276 or A479/A479M.

    Note 1For free-machining stainless wire, designed especially for optimum machinability, see Specification A581/A581M.

    1.2 Unless the order specifies the applicable “M” specification designation, the material shall be furnished to the inch-pound units.

    1.3 The values stated in either SI units or inch-pound units are to be regarded separately as standard. The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in non-conformance with the standard.
