Aluminium and aluminium alloys - Drawing stock - Part 1: General requirements and technical conditions for inspection and delivery

Status: Valid

Scope
This European Standard specifies general requirements for drawing stock of aluminium and aluminium alloys delivered in the form of coils with a unit mass ranging between 1 t and 4 t and obtained by common industrial processes. It also specifies the technical conditions for inspection and delivery of these products. It applies to drawing stock intended for the following main fields of application: wires for general electrical purposes; wires for general mechanical uses; wires for brazing and welding and metal spraying; food packaging. The specific requirements to drawing stock for these applications are specified in EN 1715-2, EN 1715-3 and EN 1715-4. It does not apply to wires which are drawn, but only to drawing stock which is produced by hot-working. NOTE Three main methods exist for the manufacture of drawing stock: a) continuously cast rod (CCR): a section is cast continuously in the groove of a wheel, the groove being closed by an endless strip; the solid and still hot section is rolled in a multistand rolling mill to the required diameter; the drawing stock rod thus produced is wound continuously to form coils up to 4 t in mass; b) hot rolled rod (HRR):
