    1. Scope

    1.1 This specification covers 12 1/2-gage (0.099-in.) [2.5- mm] Class 3 metallic-coated steel wire suitable for use in parallelwire fence, trellis, and similar structures that are typically nonelectrified. Two types of coatings are covered, as follows:

    1.1.1 Type 1Zinc-coated (galvanized), and

    1.1.2 Type IIZinc-5 % aluminum mischmetal (Zn-5Al-MM) alloy coated.

    1.2 This specification is applicable to orders in either inch-pound units (as A 854) or acceptable SI units (as A 854M). Inch-pound units and SI units are not necessarily equivalent.
