    ASTM B398 / B398M

    1. Scope

    1.1 This specification covers aluminum-alloy 6201-T81 (hard: solution heat-treated, cold worked, and artificially aged) round wire for electrical purposes.

    Note 1—The alloy and temper designations conform to ANSI H35.1 and H35.1M. Aluminum-alloy 6201 corresponds to unified numbering system alloy A96201 in accordance with Practice E 527.

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

    1.2.1 For density, resistivity and temperature, the values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard.
