6 Order content
The contract for ordering according to this Standard shall contain the following
main contents:
a) Number of this Standard;
b) Product name;
c) Intensity level;
d) Structure code;
e) Steel strand size, length and weight (or quantity, or coil weight);
f) Twist direction;
g) Purpose;
h) Other requirements.
7 Technical requirements
7.1 Shape, size, weight and allowable deviation
The size and allowable deviation of the steel strand shall meet the requirements
furnace batch numbers at the most.
7.2.4 The lay length of the steel strand shall be 12 to 16 times the nominal
diameter of the steel strand.
7.2.5 The diameter of the center wire shall not be less than 1.03 times the
diameter of the outer wire.
7.2.6 There shall be no broken, cross-cracked and intersecting steel wires in
the steel strand.
7.2.7 The twist direction of the steel strand is right twist or left twist.
7.2.8 The steel strand shall be cut with a grinding wheel saw. It shall not be
loose after cutting. If it leaves the original position, it shall be manually restored
to the original position.
7.2.9 There shall be no welding points on the steel strand, including the welding
points before drawing.
7.3 Properties
7.3.1 The mechanical properties of steel strand shall meet the requirements of
Table 3.
Table 3 -- Mechanical properties of steel strand

1×7 15.20 1860 260 288 229 5.0
1×7 15.70 1860 279 309 246 5.0
1×7 17.80 1860 355 391 313 5.0
7.3.2 The steel strand is drawn and fractured. The steel wire fracture shall be
plastic fracture.
7.3.3 The rate of reduction in area Z of the central steel wire of the strand is not
less than 25%.
7.3.4 The elastic modulus E of the steel strand is (195±10) GPa, which cannot
be used as a delivery condition. When requested by the purchaser, the range
value shall be met.
8.3.2 0.2% yield strength
The 0.2% yield strength test of the steel strand is carried out in accordance with
the provisions of GB/T 21839. The 0.2% yield force is the force (Fp0.2) when the
non-proportional extension of the extensometer gauge length (not less than
500mm) reaches 0.2% of the extensometer gauge length. When measuring
Fp0.2, the preload is 10% of the nominal maximum force.
8.3.3 Maximum force total elongation
The determination of the maximum force total elongation Agt is carried out in
accordance with the provisions of GB/T 21839. If it uses a computer to collect
data or use electronic stretching equipment, the extension of the specimen
caused by the preload when measuring the elongation shall be added to the
total extension.
8.3.4 Elastic modulus
The determination of elastic modulus is carried out according to GB/T 21839.
8.3.5 Steel wire section shrinkage rate
The rate of reduction in area of steel wire shall be determined in accordance
with the provisions of GB/T 228.1. After the wire is broken, the diameter of the
wire is measured in two mutually perpendicular directions at the smallest point
of the necking (if necessary, the broken part of the specimen shall be butted
together at the break). Take the average value d1. The rate of reduction in area
of steel wire is calculated according to formula (2):
Z - Rate of reduction in area, %;
d1 - Average diameter after breaking, in millimeters (mm);
d0 - Original average diameter, in millimeters (mm).
8.4 Stress relaxation performance test
8.4.1 The stress relaxation performance test of steel strand shall be carried out
according to GB/T 21839.
8.4.2 The test gauge length is not less than 60 times of the nominal diameter.
8.4.3 No heat treatment or cold working shall be carried out after specimen
10.1.3 Each coil of steel strands shall be bundled firmly, not less than 6 bundles.
After mutual agreement, moisture-proof paper, linen cloth and other materials
can be added for packaging.
10.2 Labeling
Each steel strand coil shall be attached with a sign, indicating supplier name,
product name, mark, exit-factory number, specification, strength level, furnace
batch number, execution document number, weight and number of pieces.
10.3 Transportation
The steel strand shall be transported in a closed type. Pay attention to
waterproof. Avoid contact with all objects that may cause mechanical or
chemical damage to the steel strand. Be careful when loading and unloading to
prevent damage to the steel strand and its packaging.
10.4 Storage
10.4.1 Steel strands shall be stored indoors. Set up support pads to prevent the
steel strand from contacting the ground.
10.4.2 Pay attention to ventilation during storage of steel strands and prevent
atmospheric corrosion to the steel strands.
10.4.3 During storage, all steel strands shall be protected with water-soluble
anti-rust oil or similar products every 10d~12d if they are unpacked.
10.5 Quality certificate
Each batch shall be accompanied by a quality certificate, indicating the
supplier's name, product name, specification, mark, strength level,
implementation standard, weight, number of pieces, purchaser’s name, test
results, delivery date, and quality inspection department's imprint.
