STANDARDS & PROPERTIES
EM welded wire fabric is manufactured to comply to the requirements of Malaysias Standard MS 145 : 2001 - Steel Fabric for the Reinforcement of Concrete. The cold reduced steel wires used in the manufacturing of EM fabric complies to the Malaysian Standard MS 144 : 2001 - Hard Drawn Mild Steel Wire for the Reinforcement of Concrete, which stipulates a minimum characteristics yield strength (0.2% proof stress) of 485 N/mm2. While the shear strength of each weld is at least half of the yield strength (250 N/mm2) of the wires which which ensures that the necessary anchorage can be developed.
With our new Cold Reduced Mild Steel Bars for reinforcement of concrete under MS 144 : 2001 and the yield strength will be minimum at 500 N/mm2.
