Tensile Strength (Mpa)

The tensile strength is defined as the maximum load achieved in the tensile test, divided by the cross-sectional area of the wire test piece. Galvanized Wire is produced using soft, medium and hard grade wires. The following table specifies the tensile range according to the grade:

 

Grade

Tensile Strength (Mpa)

Galvanised - Soft Quality

Galvanised - Medium Quality

Galvanised - Hard Quality

380/550

500/625

625/850

 

Please note that the sizes mentioned above are indicative only and do not specify the size range available from my products range.

 

Steel Chemistry

A combination of steel grades is used and heat treatment processes to manufacture soft, medium and hard tensile grades. The table below is indicative only of steel chemistries used.
