This specification covers plain and deformed steel wire and plain and deformed steel welded wire reinforcement with protective epoxy coating for use in concrete, masonry and mechanically stabilized earth applications. The materials under this specification shall be in accordance with other ASTM documents enlisted herein. Tests for coating thickness and continuity shall be made on each size of wire or style of welded wire reinforcement. Bend tests for coating flexibility shall be conducted on at least one wire of each size or style or welded wire reinforcement. If the specimen fails to meet the specified requirements for coating thickness, continuity, or bend test (if applicable), two retests on random specimens shall be conducted for each failed test. If both retests meet the specified requirements, the coated material represented by the specimens shall be accepted.
