This ASTM is used to test welded wire that is used in the reinforcement of concrete. This standard coves wire that is made from cold-worked drawn or rolled deformed wire, or a combination of deformed and non-deformed wires. Convoluted steel wire is often tested with ASTM A497. To meet the standard set by ASTM, the steel wire that is being tested must meet the tensile, bend, and weld shear strength requirements.
TestResources specializes in test equipment, machines and fixtures that are used in material testing. We have the material testing machines that are used for ASTM A497 test standard. Call our applications engineers to talk with an expert in material testing. We will work with you to guarantee a test machine that fits your application.
