    1. Scope

    1.1 This specification covers soft, medium, and hard temper zinc-5% aluminum-mischmetal (Zn-5 Al-MM) alloy-coated carbon steel wire in coils for general use. The product is intended for applications requiring corrosion resistance, drawability, and formability.

    1.2 This specification is applicable to orders in either inch-pound units (as A856) or acceptable SI units [as A856M]. Inch-pound units and SI units are not necessarily equivalent.

    1.3 The supplementary requirements of this specification cover Zn-5 Al-MM alloy coating weights for nails, staples, and wire from which nails and staples are cut and formed.
