    Abstract

    This specification deals with poly(vinyl chloride), PVC and other conforming organic polymer-coated steel tension wire for use with chain-link fence. Tension wire, produced from three classes of wire coatings, is covered as follows: Class 1, consisting of a polymer coating extruded over zinc-coated or aluminum-coated or zinc-5 % aluminum-mischmetal alloy-coated steel wire; Class 2a, consisting of a polymer coating extruded and adhered to zinc-coated or aluminum-coated or zinc-5 % aluminum-mischmetal alloy-coated steel wire; and Class 2b, consisting of a polymer coating fused and adhered to zinc-coated or aluminum-coated or zinc-5 % aluminum-mischmetal alloy-coated steel wire. Materials shall be tested and the individual grades shall conform to specified values of wire size, breaking strength, metallic coating weight, PVC coating thickness, polymer-coated tension wire properties, and coil length.

    This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This specification covers PVC and other conforming organic polymer-coated steel tension wire for use with chain link fence. PVC and other organic polymer coatings hereinafter will be designated as polymer coating.

    1.2 Tension wire, produced from three classes of wire coatings, is covered as follows:

    1.2.1 Class 1, consisting of a polymer coating extruded over zinc-coated or aluminum-coated or zinc-5 % aluminum-mischmetal alloy-coated steel wire;

    1.2.2 Class 2a, consisting of a polymer coating extruded and adhered to zinc-coated or aluminum-coated or zinc-5 % aluminum-mischmetal alloy-coated steel wire; and

    1.2.3 Class 2b, consisting of a polymer coating fused and adhered to zinc-coated or aluminum-coated or zinc-5 % aluminum-mischmetal alloy-coated steel wire.

    1.3 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.
