External and internal flaws such as pits, pores, pinholes, blisters, laps, grooves, cracks or flaws, shrink holes, and slag inclusions must be avoided. The steel wire when tested must meet the mechanical properties as specified in the standard. The chemical composition shall be as per specified standard.


Tests shall be carried out in accordance with the standard.

  • Chemical composition
  • Tensile test
  • Reverse torsion test
  • Crushing test
  • Dimensions and tolerances

Packing and Marking:

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