    Abstract

    This specification covers drawn, soft annealed round copper electrode wire used in welding machines for the purpose of seam welding of cans. It does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this specification to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

    This specification establishes the requirements with respect to materials and manufacturing process, chemical composition, temper, physical and mechanical properties, workmanship, finish, and appearance. It also provides guidance for sampling, number of tests and retests, specimen preparation, test methods, certification, test report, and packaging and package marking.

    This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard. It is informational only and not an official part of the standard; the full text of the standard itself must be referred to for its use and application. ASTM does not give any warranty express or implied or make any representation that the contents of this abstract are accurate, complete or up to date.

    1. Scope

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

    1.2 Units—The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to inch-pound units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.

    1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, 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.
