All austenitic grades in the annealed condition or annealed and lightly drafted condition shall be capable of passing the criteria set by this specification. This standard is subject to revision at any time by the responsible technical committee and must be reviewed every ve years and if not revised, either reapproved or withdrawn. The producer should be consulted when material is required to tensile strength ranges other than those specied. Material can be manufactured to tensile strength ranges other than those shown in Table 2.


The following coatings may be specied: Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard.

This specification covers cold-finished and hot-finished stainless steel wire and wire rods for cold heading or cold forging for applications, such as fasteners, where corrosion resistance is a factor.
