1.1 This specification covers bare round copper-clad aluminum wire for electrical applications.
1.2 Four classes of copper-clad aluminum wire are covered as follows:
Class 10A—Nominal 10 volume % copper, annealed.
Class 15A—Nominal 15 volume % copper, annealed.
Class 10H—Nominal 10 volume % copper, hard-drawn.
Class 15H—Nominal 15 volume % copper, hard-drawn.
1.3 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as the standard, except for resistivity and density, where the SI units are the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.
2. Referenced Documents (purchase separately) The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard.
