    ASTM B800

    1. Scope

    1.1 This specification covers 8000 series aluminum alloys fabricated into round wires in annealed or intermediate tempers suitable for stranding into conductors or for solid single conductors, usually to be insulated.

    1.2 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as the standard with the exception of resistivity. The units given in parentheses are for information only.

    Note 1-Aluminum alloys capable of meeting the requirements of this specification are listed in Table 1. Note 2-The alloy and temper designations conform to ANSI H35.1. Unified Numbering System alloy designations are listed in Table 1 in accordance with Practice E527. Note 3-Certain aluminum alloys may be subject to patent rights. U.S. patents numbers are shown in Table 1.
