What is ASTM A1064?

What is ASTM A1064?

ASTM A1064/A1064M, Revision 18A, November 15, 2018 – Standard Specification for Carbon-Steel Wire and Welded Wire Reinforcement, Plain and Deformed, for Concrete. This specification covers carbon-steel wire and welded wire reinforcement produced from hot-rolled rod to be used for the reinforcement of concrete.

What is ASTM A185?

ASTM A185: Steel Wire Fabric for Concrete Reinforcement.

What is welded wire reinforcement?

Welded wire reinforcement is steel reinforcement that can be used in virtually any structural application across the full range of concrete construction. Today, concrete structures across the world are being successfully and economically reinforced with high-strength, customizable welded wire reinforcement.

Can you weld ASTM A615 rebar?

ASTM A615 (2014a) reinforcing bars can be welded, but may require preheating the bars up to 500° F.

What is the difference between welded wire mesh and welded wire fabric?

Welded wire metal is more efficient at holding lids in place compared to its woven counterpart. Welded wire cloth contains heavy duty loads and withstands greater force without breaking or tearing, making it the ideal choice for protective or barrier applications.

What styles of wires are used to make welded wire reinforcement?

As defined by ASTM A1064, welded wire reinforcement is a material composed of cold-worked steel wire with indented or raised rib deformations. The wire itself is cold-drawn or cold-rolled from hot-rolled steel rod. The cold-working process includes reducing, deforming, and straightening.

What types of coatings are used on welded wire reinforcement?

Two types of coating, epoxy and galvanization, can be applied to welded wire reinforcement to provide better corrosion resistance.
