The wire must be drawn from steel produced through an open hearth, electric, duplex, basic oxygen, or a combination of these processes. A sufficient amount of discard must be taken to ensure freedom from harmful pipe and segregation. Steel wires must be drawn to the specified dimensions neatly and cleanly. It must be structurally sound and free from splits, surface flaws, rough, jagged, and imperfect edges, and other harmful surface defects. The carbon steel wire when tested must meet the mechanical properties as specified in the standard.


Tests shall be carried out as per standard.

  • Chemical composition
  • Tensile test
  • Bend test
  • Wrapping test

Packing and Marking:

Each coil of wire must be compactly bound and fastened. Each coil of wire must be marked with the grade, size, trademark or manufacturer's name, and date of manufacture. The material may also be marked with a standard mark (ISI mark). Manufacturers must obtain a BIS license from the Bureau of Indian Standards to use a standard mark (ISI Mark).
