|This specification covers zinc-coated steel welded wire
reinforcement, plain and deformed, or a combination of deformed and
plain wires, for reinforcement of concrete, in sizes not less than
0.080 in. [2.03 mm] and over nominal diameter for plain wire and
0.113 in. [2.87 mm] and over for deformed wire.
This specification is intended to be applicable to coldworked
wire, drawn or rolled, plain or deformed, coated in a continuous
An alternative to a continuous coating process of wire before
fabrication is a hot-dip process, where the welded wire
reinforcement is immersed in a bath of molten zinc.
NOTE 1—Data on the corrosion resistance of galvanized steels in
concrete are limited. The user is cautioned that the laboratory
testing performed on this material has been insufficient and may
not accurately reflect the performance of the material when
embedded in concrete as reinforcement.
The values stated in either SI units or inch-pound units are to
be regarded separately as standard. The values stated in each
system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall
be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two
systems may result in non-conformance with the standard.
This standard does not purport to address all of the safety
concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility
of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and
health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory
limitations prior to use.
