    This specification deals with figure-9 deep-section grooved and figure-8 copper trolley wire for use in industrial haulage. The material shall conform to the required tensile properties: tensile strength and elongation. Tension tests shall be made. However, elongation tests shall not be made on specimens containing joints. The electrical resistivity shall be determined by resistance measurements. The standard sizes of figure-9 deep-section grooved and figure-8 copper trolley wire are specified.
