ASTM A 407 equivalent

ASTM A 407 equivalent

Hi Newbie in town

i was wondering if anyone knows an equivalent name for
this kind of steelwire
I can not find an w-nr or SAE number that relates to this perticular steel (ASTM A407 type B)

RE: ASTM A 407 equivalent

If you look at the ASTM A407 spec, you will find this wire refered to as upholstery spring wire and lacing wire. It is a hard drawn spring wire with lower mechanical properties than ASTM A227 hard drawn. With spring wire, you will generally not find a chemical composition comparable to an SAE steel grade, with the notable exception of 9254 chrome silicon wire and the various grades of stainless wire. BTW, SAE used to publish spring wire specs, but they were shelved some years ago in favor of ASTM specs.
