Specifications & info
All strand meets applicable ASTM specifications. Since the results of the ASTM Long Life atmosphere Corrosion tests were published many utilities have made a restudy of the life of the A galvanized strand in their own system and have begun to use heavier B and C coatings with two and three times the normal life of A where unusual corrosion conditions have indicated such action was desirable. In the USA most of the experience with heavy coatings has been with electroplated coatings. Zinc is a fairly simple metal and its protective action toward steel has made it a universally used economical coating. Since the atmospheric Corrosion tests show the life of a zinc coating is proportional to its thickness doubling the weight of zinc coating can be expected to give twice the life. In the case of C coatings of zinc three times the weight of zinc can be expected to result in three times the life of the A galvanized strand. Nearly every utility has records of A galvanized strand in use after 35 to 40 years or more. With this history the best guarantee of an even longer life system is to specify B or C coatings. Other important characteristics of galvanized steel strand are high elongation at point of fracture and high fatigue endurance strength. Galvanized strand greatly exceeds in these two characteristics other products used for similar applications. Minimum Strength is 11200.
