NOTE 1—A typical ordering description is as follows: The SI equivalents are in parentheses and may be approximate.

ASTM A493 for Stainless Steel Wire and Wire Rods for Cold Heading and Cold Forging

Material can be manufactured to tensile strength ranges other than those shown in Table 2. A superscript epsilon e indicates an editorial change since the last revision or reapproval.

The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard. The following lubricants may be specied: Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard.

ASTM A for Stainless Steel Wire and Wire Rods for Cold Heading and Cold Forging

The producer should be consulted when material is required to tensile strength ranges other than those specied. A number in parentheses indicates the year of last reapproval. General Requirements for Delivery 4. Last previous edition A — The following coatings may be specied: Soap is generally used.


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. 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 abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard. The material shall also conform to the requirements asttm to mechanical properties.

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. The steel shall conform to the required chemical composition requirements. An electroplated copper coating is often used.

Your comments are invited either for revision of this standard or for additional standards and should be addressed to ASTM Headquarters.

Resistance to Intergranular Corrosion 8. This standard is subject to revision at any time by the responsible technical committee and must be qstm every ve years and if aa493 revised, either reapproved or withdrawn.

ICS Number Code B Product analysis tolerance over the maximum limit for carbon and nitrogen to be 0. Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard. This standard has been approved for use by agencies of the Department of Defense.

Such requirements may include, but are not limited to the following: Your comments will receive careful consideration at a meeting of the responsible technical committee, which you may attend. For smaller sizes, similar mechanical properties apply to ferritic and martensitic grades; however the producer should be consulted regarding somewhat higher tensile properties applicable to austenitic grades.
