This specification covers expanded metal. Expanded metal shall be of the following types, classes, grades such as type I-expanded, type II-expanded and flattened, class I-uncoated, class2-hot-dip zinc uncoated, class 3-corrosion resisting steel, grade A and grade B. Expanded metal shall be made from commercial steel, carbon steel sheets or from stainless steel sheets. Expanded metal shall be manufactured with the corresponding thickness, design size, opening size and strand size. Each single strand test specimen shall be visually inspected, and that surface of the strand observed to have the most nearly uniform coating shall be the tension surface when the strand is subject to bending. The coating thickness shall be measured microscopically at a suitable magnification. The minimum and maximum coating thicknesses shall be measured on each of the four exposed surfaces, but not at the corners.
