Someone just mentioned this recently - a parameter on CPYTOSTMF can help with this:

               End of line characters (ENDLINFMT) - Help
*FIXED
    The lines in the stream file are written as fixed length records.
    CR and LF characters are not added at the end of each line, trailing
    blanks are not removed from the end of each record.  The length of
    the stream file records equals the length of the database file
    records.

You might also look at the simple CPY command, which does raw copying, with optional conversion.

Is there a way, using either of these two commands, to retain the record
length of a physical file even though there is only hex 40 in the last
character? Right now it is truncating the data.

Thanks,
