The wire is galvanized by hot dip process in accordance with BS 443.
The preferred nominal sizes and tolerance according to BS 1442 are as per Table No. 1.
The tensile strength calculated on the actual diameter of the galvanized wire is between 34 h bar and 50 h bar. 1 h bar = 10N/mm
The elongation of wire will not be less than 10%
The minimum number of turns to fracture is as per Table No. 1
