Historical (view previous versions of standard)
This practice covers the rules for naming one, two, or three-piece round wire leads used as conductors through glass seals in electron tubes, excluding stranded leads and leads for semiconductors. Each portion of designation should be separated by a dash (-). Materials for a component lead are generally designated using the chemical symbols. Claddings or platings are represented by numerical suffixes at the end of the material designation preceded by "C" (coating). For alloys that are unspecified, a numerical value between chemical symbols indicates the percent content of the material preceding the value. Descriptive suffixes are used to specify annealing conditions.
