Re: Metric Designation of Wire Reinforcement

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
The english units for MW70 are W10.9 The wire reinforcing institute put out a metric conversion chart. I can fax it to you if you would like. Need your fax number. The 70 represents 70 square mm which you could convert to square inches .109 thus the W10.9.

I have a rebar submittal called out a Metric MW 71 for reinforcement. Can
anyone tell me what this MW 71 is in US units? Is there a easy way to
convert wire reinforcement size from US unit to Metric? Thank you.
