4 Product designation

The designation of round wire for ropes, covered by this part of EN 10264, shall be based on the nominal

diameter (d), surface appearance and tensile strength classification. The abbreviation for the surface

finish condition is:
— U (uncoated) for bright wire;
— A or B for zinc or zinc alloy coating depending on coating class.

A distinction is made between a zinc and a zinc alloy coating by the addition in brackets of “Zn/Al” for the

zinc alloy.

EXAMPLE 1 Wire for rope for general applications with nominal diameter d = 1,5 mm, surface appearance bright

(U), tensile strength grade 1 770 MPa.
rope wire EN 10264-2 — 1,5 — U — 1 770

EXAMPLE 2 Wire for rope for general applications with a nominal diameter d = 2,5 mm, zinc coated class A,

tensile strength grade 1 370 MPa.

EXAMPLE 3 Wire for rope for general applications with a nominal diameter d = 1,8 mm, coated with zinc alloy,

class B, tensile strength grade 1 770 MPa.
rope wire EN 10264-2 — 1,8 — B(Zn/Al) — 1 770
5 General conditions of manufacture

The drawn wire shall be manufactured using wire rod in accordance with either EN ISO 16120-1 and

EN ISO 16120-2 or EN ISO 16120-1 and EN ISO 16120-4.

The finished wire shall show no surface defects or internal defects prejudicial to its use.

Drawn wire may be supplied with a zinc or zinc alloy coating according to ASTM B997. Unless otherwise

specified, the zinc used for the zinc coating shall have a purity of 99,95 % according to EN 1179, Z3, other

zinc alloys are subject to agreement.
