ASTM publishes versatile new standard

The ASTM Committee A01 on Steel, Stainless Steel and Related Alloys has announced that it has published a versatile new standard, A1064/A1064M, Specification for Steel Wire and Welded Wire Reinforcement, Plain and Deformed, for Concrete. The new standard is under the jurisdiction of Subcommittee A01.05 on Steel Reinforcement. It is suitable for applications ranging from reinforcement for concrete pipe and various other concrete drainage products to slabs on ground, bridges, walls and high-rise buildings. ASTM A1064/A1064M will eliminate the need for multiple A01.05 standards that referred to each other. The new standard combines information previously contained in the following four existing A01.05 standards: A82/A82M, Specification for Steel Wire, Plain, for Concrete Reinforcement; A185/A185M, Specification for Steel Welded Wire Reinforcement, Plain, for Concrete; A496/A496M, Specification for Steel Wire, Deformed, for Concrete Reinforcement; and A497/A497M, Specification for Steel Welded Wire Reinforcement, Deformed, for Concrete.
