1.1 This specification establishes requirements common to wrought copper alloy wire and shall apply to Specifications B 16/B 16M, B 99/B 99M, B 134/B 134M, B 159/B 159M, B 197/B 197M, B 206/B 206M, B 272, and B 301/B 301M to the extent referenced therein.
1.2 The chemical composition, physical and mechanical properties, and all other requirements not included in this specification shall be prescribed in the product specification.
1.3 Units—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.
