ASTM WK43064

    Work Item: ASTM WK43064 - Revision of B398 / B398M - 02(2013) Standard Specification for Aluminum-Alloy 6201-T81 Wire for Electrical Purposes

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: B398 / B398M - 02(2013)

    Developed by Subcommittee: B01.07 | Committee B01 | Contact Staff Manager

    1. Rationale

    The following changes are proposed for the introduction of a higher conductivity grade of 6201 aluminum alloy material than the present 6201-T81 aluminum. This material is electrically and mechanically equivalent to Aluminum Alloy 6101-T83 as referenced in CSA C60104 for Aluminum Alloy A4. The use of 6201-T83 material enables the manufacture of TW type 6201 conductors.
