Historical (view previous versions of standard)
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.
