    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 or SI units are to be regarded separately as the 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 standard.

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

    Note 1

    Aluminum alloys capable of meeting the requirements of this specification are listed in .

    Note 2

    The alloy and temper designations conform to ANSI H35.1. Unified Numbering System alloy designations are listed in in accordance with Practice E 527.

    Note 3

    Certain aluminum alloys may be subject to patent rights. U.S. patents numbers are shown in .

    This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
