Tensile Strength (Mpa)

The tensile strength is defined as the maximum load achieved in the tensile test, divided by the cross-sectional area of the wire test piece. Galvanized Wire is produced using soft, medium and hard grade wires. The following table specifies the tensile range according to the grade:
