Carbon Steel Wire for Wire Rope 1
This standard is issued under the fixed designation A 1007; the number immediately following the designation indicates the year of
original adoption or, in the case of revision, the year of last revision. A number in parentheses indicates the year of last reapproval. A
superscript epsilon (e) indicates an editorial change since the last revision or reapproval.
 Scope
1.1 This specification covers uncoated and four classes of
round, metallic coated, cold-drawn, carbon steel wire for wire
rope in five strength levels. This specification specifies:
1.1.1 Dimensional tolerances,
1.1.2 Mechanical characteristics,
1.1.3 Chemical composition requirements,
1.1.4 Coating requirements (if applicable), and
1.1.5 Packaging requirements.
1.2 The values stated for metric equivalents are provided for
informational purposes only.

3. Terminology
3.1 Definitions:
3.1.1 actual diameter—the arithmetic mean of the mini-
mum and maximum diameter measurements in one location on
the wire.
3.1.2 breaking force level (Levels 1,2,3,4 or 5)—a wire
strength based on the minimum load carrying capability of a
designated wire.
3.1.3 drawn-galvanized—a zinc coating that is applied to
the wire prior to the final cold drawing operation by either an
electro-deposition or hot-galvanizing process.
3.1.4 drawn-Zn5 Al-MM—a zinc-aluminum alloy (misch-
metal) coating that is applied to the wire prior to the final cold
drawing operation by a molten coating process.
3.1.5 final-coated Zn5 Al-MM—a zinc-aluminum alloy
(misch-metal) coating that is applied to the wire after the final
cold drawing operation by a molten coating process.
3.1.6 final-galvanized—a zinc coating that is applied to the
wire after the final cold drawing operation by either an
electro-deposition or hot-galvanizing process.
3.1.7 nominal diameter—the diameter of the wire expressed
in inches (millimetres) and specified by the user to designate
