ASTM WK44679

    Work Item: ASTM WK44679 - New Specification for Copper Electrode Wire used for Welding the Seams of Steel Cans

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Developed by Subcommittee: B05.07 | Committee B05 | Contact Staff Manager

    1. Scope

    This specification covers drawn, soft annealed round copper electrode wire used in welding machines for the purpose of seam welding of cans.

    This standard was developed due to the need for specific requirements related to electrode can wire that does not require the same criteria defined in B03 or the general requirements for a variety of materials often cited in B49. This specification specifically addresses the requirements for wire used in welding machines as an electrode for seam welding of 3 piece cans.
