Need chem comp&mech properties of ASTM A-228

Need chemical composition and mechanical properties of ASTM A-228.  I also would like to know a good site to look up similar info on other steel.  MatWeb seems to have only the mat'l sold by AK Steel.

RE: Need chem comp&mech properties of ASTM A-228

A228 is music wire. A high carbon steel spring wire--mech properties vary with the diameter. Smaller diameter wire has higher mech properties. As CoryPad said, get the spec, if you plan to work with it.

RE: Need chem comp&mech properties of ASTM A-228

I don't want to be too dogmatic about this, but if you write an ASTM spec number on a print or a PO you had better won a current copy, and have read it.  When you invoke those numbers you are establishing contractual terms.
