DIN Standards Committee Steel Wire and Wire Products
Surface Condition of Steel Wires - Denominations and Abbreviations thereof
This standard uniformly defines the designations and their abbreviations for the surface quality of drawn steel wire; they are based on the manufacturing technique. The designations or, if necessary, e.g. for reasons of space saving, their abbreviations according to this standard should be used when forming designations, especially when defining standardized steel wires when forming standard designations. This standard applies to steel wires whose surface finish is the result of the work processes normally used in wire refinement and which are manufactured on a large scale. This standard does not apply to steel wires whose surface finish is obtained by special processes. These include steel wires with coatings obtained by galvanic (electrolytic) nickel plating, chromium plating, cadmium plating, etc. or enamelling, or whose existing metallic coatings are subsequently chemically treated. Such steel wires are not considered as commercially available.
