|Publication Date:||1 March 2018|
|ICS Code (Steels for reinforcement of concrete):||77.140.15|
This specification covers two classes of uncoated, highstrength, hard-drawn steel wire for use in the manufacture of prestressed concrete pipe. In application, the wire is helically wrapped on the pipe maintaining tension by mechanical means not including drawing dies.
A supplementary requirement (S1) is provided for use where hydrogen embrittlement (HE) resistance testing is required by the purchaser. Supplementary requirement (S1), which establishes acceptance criteria for HE resistance testing, applies only when specified in the purchase order or contract.
The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.
