Foreword

ISO (the International Organization for Standardization) is a worldwide federation of national standards

bodies (ISO member bodies). The work of preparing International Standards is normally carried out

through ISO technical committees. Each member body interested in a subject for which a technical

committee has been established has the right to be represented on that committee. International

organizations, governmental and non-governmental, in liaison with ISO, also take part in the work.

ISO collaborates closely with the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) on all matters of

electrotechnical standardization.

The procedures used to develop this document and those intended for its further maintenance are

described in the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 1. In particular, the different approval criteria needed for the

different types of ISO documents should be noted. This document was drafted in accordance with the

editorial rules of the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 2 (see www .iso .org/ directives).

Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this document may be the subject of

patent rights. ISO shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights. Details of

any patent rights identified during the development of the document will be in the Introduction and/or

on the ISO list of patent declarations received (see www .iso .org/ patents).

Any trade name used in this document is information given for the convenience of users and does not

constitute an endorsement.

This document was prepared by Technical Committee ISO/TC 17, Steel, Subcommittee SC 17, Steel wire

rod and wire products.

This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition (ISO 7989-2:2007), which has been technically

revised.
The main changes compared to the previous edition are as follows:
— reference is also made to ASTM B997 for Zn-Al alloy coatings (see 4.1);
— coating mass Class E is introduced for zinc-aluminium coatings (see Table 1);
— coating requirements to salt-spray test is added, see 4.2.2;
— dipping test better specified for Zinc-Alu alloy coatings (see Table 3);
— correction of formulae in 5.2.3.6.

4 Coating requirements
4.1 Requirements for the coating material

The zinc or zinc alloy used for the coating shall be specified at the time of the enquiry and order. For

zinc alloys not mentioned in this document, the alloy shall be specified at the enquiry and order.

NOTE For Zn-AI alloy coatings, reference is made to ASTM B997 or ASTM B750.

The ingot of the material used for the zinc coating shall be of minimum 99,9 % purity unless otherwise

stated in the relevant product standard or other specification in the order. Coatings applied by

electrolysis shall contain a minimum of 99 % zinc.
4.2 Requirements relating to coating on the wire
4.2.1 Coating mass per unit area

The minimum mass of zinc or zinc-aluminium alloy coatings, per unit of surface area of the wire, shall

comply with the requirements of Table 1.

If no class of zinc coating or no coating mass per unit area is specified, the coating shall be called

“regular coating”.

Zinc-coated wire produced as “regular coating” shall have the full surface covered with zinc, but there

is no specified minimum weight of coating.

Coating mass different to Table 1 is possible in agreement between the manufacturer and the supplier.

The corrosion resistance in salt spray according ISO 9227 of this Class E shall be at least equivalent of these from a zinc

coating according Class B.
only for zinc-aluminium coatings.
4.2.2 Coating requirements to salt-spray test

The surface of the samples of the wires, when tested according ISO 9227, shall not show more than 5 %

dark brown rust after the minimum hours defined below.

The minimum number of hours of salt spray resistance depends on type of coating, wire diameter and

specified minimum coating explained in Table 1.

Table 2 is applicable to wires with minimum 1,6 mm diameter and minimum 100 g/m coating weight.

The minimum number of hours will be calculated by multiplying minimum coating in g/m and the

normalised coefficient (h/g/m ) reported in Table 2.

h/g/m : Multiplied by coating weight = Hours Salt spray before 5 % steel rust according to ISO 9227.

For example: Zinc Class A wire:
— dia 1,65 with 205 g/m will stand 410 h;
— dia 10,00 with 300 g/m will stand 600 h.

The salt spray test result (e.g. 1 500h ) is the average value of 6 wire samples of each minimum 20 cm length.

4.2.3 Appearance of coating

The coating applied to the wire shall be reasonably smooth and as evenly distributed as industrial

technology allows and not show discontinuities such as bare patches, dross contamination, etc.

NOTE The zinc-aluminium alloy might show difference in colour and become darker with time. This does not

affect the corrosion protection performance.
4.2.4 Dipping test

If agreed at the time of the enquiry and order, the dipping (immersion) test shall be carried out according

to the procedure detailed in 5.3. However, it should be pointed out that there is no direct link between

the number of dips and the coating mass per unit area and that the result is determined as much by the

conditions of manufacture of the coating as by the uniformity of the coating.

Table 3 gives the minimum number of immersions for coatings of Classes A and AB. The dipping test

does not apply to Classes B, C, D and E.

The corrosion resistance in salt spray according ISO 9227 of this Class E shall be at least equivalent of these from a zinc

coating according Class B.
only for zinc-aluminium coatings.
4.2.2 Coating requirements to salt-spray test

The surface of the samples of the wires, when tested according ISO 9227, shall not show more than 5 %

dark brown rust after the minimum hours defined below.

The minimum number of hours of salt spray resistance depends on type of coating, wire diameter and

specified minimum coating explained in Table 1.

Table 2 is applicable to wires with minimum 1,6 mm diameter and minimum 100 g/m coating weight.

The minimum number of hours will be calculated by multiplying minimum coating in g/m and the

normalised coefficient (h/g/m ) reported in Table 2.

h/g/m : Multiplied by coating weight = Hours Salt spray before 5 % steel rust according to ISO 9227.

For example: Zinc Class A wire:
— dia 1,65 with 205 g/m will stand 410 h;
— dia 10,00 with 300 g/m will stand 600 h.

The salt spray test result (e.g. 1 500h ) is the average value of 6 wire samples of each minimum 20 cm length.

4.2.3 Appearance of coating

The coating applied to the wire shall be reasonably smooth and as evenly distributed as industrial

technology allows and not show discontinuities such as bare patches, dross contamination, etc.

NOTE The zinc-aluminium alloy might show difference in colour and become darker with time. This does not

affect the corrosion protection performance.
4.2.4 Dipping test

If agreed at the time of the enquiry and order, the dipping (immersion) test shall be carried out according

to the procedure detailed in 5.3. However, it should be pointed out that there is no direct link between

the number of dips and the coating mass per unit area and that the result is determined as much by the

conditions of manufacture of the coating as by the uniformity of the coating.

Table 3 gives the minimum number of immersions for coatings of Classes A and AB. The dipping test

does not apply to Classes B, C, D and E.
