    1. Scope

    1.1 This specification covers tin-coated copper-clad steel wire for electronic application.

    1.2 Four classes of tin-coated copper-clad steel wire are covered as follows:

    1.2.1 Class T30HS- Nominal 30% conductivity, hard-drawn,

    1.2.2 Class T30A- Nominal 30% conductivity, annealed,

    1.2.3 Class T40HS- Nominal 40% conductivity, hard-drawn, and

    1.2.4 Class T40A- Nominal 40% conductivity, annealed.

    1.3 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as the standard. The metric equivalents of inch-pound units may be approximate. The values given in parentheses are for information only.

    1.4 The following safety hazards caveat pertains only to the test method portion, Section 6, of this specification: This standard does not purport to address all of the safety problems, 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. Specific hazard statements are given in Explanatory Note 1.
