National foreword

This British Standard is the official English language version of
EN 10264-1:2002. Together with BS EN 10264-2:2001 and BS EN 10264-3 it
supersedes BS 2763:1982, which will be withdrawn when BS EN 10264-3 is

out of roundness
arithmetic difference between the maximum diameter and the minimum diameter measured perpendicularly on one
section of wire

4 Information to be supplied by the client

In the order, the purchaser shall specify clearly the product, the delivery conditions and the type of inspection
document to be supplied.

The product is clearly defined by the designations described in prEN 10264 parts 2, 3 and 4.

For a clear definition of a delivery of rope wire, the following additional information should be given:

� mass and length of delivery (total mass);

� unit mass;

� type of packaging.

5 Characteristics of and requirements for wire

5.1 Diameter tolerances

All the diameter values measured in accordance with EN 10218-2 on one section of wire shall be within the
tolerance limits given in the respective tables. The level of tolerance corresponds to level T4 of EN 10218-2 for
drawn wire and level T1 for class A coated wire. The out of roundness shall not be greater than half the tolerance
specified in the respective tables referred to in prEN 10264 parts 2, 3 and 4.

5.2 Tensile strength

5.2.1 Tensile strength grade - permitted variations

The tensile strength grades are specified in prEN 10264 parts 2, 3 and 4. These values are the lower limits for
tensile strength of each grade. The permitted upper limit for non alloy steel wire for ropes for each grade shall not
exceed the lower limit by a value greater than the values given in Table 1.

Table 1 — Permitted tensile strength variations

Nominal dimension Permitted plus tolerance over the
wire diameter : d numerical value of tensile strength grade

or profile : h

mm MPaa

0,2 � d < 0,5 390

0,5 � d < 1,0 350

1,0 � d < 1,5 320

1,5 � d < 2,0 290

2,0 � d < 3,5 260

3,5 � d < 8,0 250
a 1 MPa = 1N/mm2

In the case of alloy steel wire for ropes, the maximum value shall not be greater than the minimum value plus 15 %.

5.2.2 Procedure for tensile test

The tensile test shall be carried out in accordance with EN 10218-1. The loading rate may be greater than that
specified in EN 10218-1, depending on the number of tests to be carried out for the batch inspection. However, it
shall not exceed the rate corresponding to a 25% elongation between anchorage heads in 1 min. The length of the
test sample should preferably be such that the distance between the clamping jaws of the test machine is around
100 mm. In the event of a dispute, the tensile test shall be carried out strictly in accordance with EN 10218-1, in
particular with regard to the loading rate.

5.3 Reverse bend test

This test is specified for steel wire for ropes as specified in prEN 10264 parts 2 and 3 with a diameter greater than
0,5 mm. It shall be carried out in accordance with EN 10218-1.

5.4 Torsion test

This test applies only to non alloy steel wire, of diameter greater than or equal to 0,5 mm. It shall be carried out in
accordance with EN 10218-1. The wire shall show no signs of breaking for a minimum number of turns as specified
in prEN 10264 parts 2 and 3.

5.5 Tensile test on knotted wire

This test replaces the alternate bending and torsion tests for dimensions below 0,50 mm. It is a tensile test on a
wire with a simple knot in the middle. This test shall be carried out in accordance with EN 10218-1.

5.6 Coatings

The coatings generally used are zinc and zinc alloy. The standard coatings are classes A and B in accordance with
EN 10244-2. If another class of coating is requested or if other metallic coatings are required, these shall be the
subject of agreement at the time of ordering. The coating method is not specified. The class of the coating is
defined by the minimum mass per unit of surface area (usually g/m2) and its adherence.

The mass of coatings shall be in accordance with the requirements specified in prEN 10264 parts 2 and 3.

6 Inspection documents

6.1 General

In accordance with the purchaser’s order, one of the following inspection documents may be drafted in accordance
with EN 10204.

6.2 Certificate of compliance with order “2.1’

In this certificate the supplier attests that the products supplied comply with the order specifications.

6.3 Specific inspection certificate “3.1.b”

This document gives the values of characteristics measured during the tests carried out by the supplier in
accordance with this European Standard.

It shall be issued by the department independent of the manufacturing department and validated by the authorised
representative of the staff independent of the manufacturing department.
