STEEL
Steel gives tensile strength to concrete and masonry structures, and
provides seismic performance. Our high quality steel, manufactured
in New Zealand from recycled scrap, is produced with minimal
adverse environmental effects, winning it Environmental Choice
labelling certication.
Reinforcing Steel
Pacic Steels Seismic

brand range of
reinforcing steel products is manufactured to meet
the demanding technical standards set by
New Zealands building codes. Our reinforcing steel
undergoes rigorous testing to ensure compliance
with the AS/NZS Standard. Test certicates,
providing details on mechanical and chemical
composition, are available on request for every
batch of steel that leaves our premises.
Plain Carbon Steel
Our low tensile, plain carbon steel rod is created
in a range of grades. This standard industrial
quality low carbon steel is manufactured for cold
drawing or rolling into reinforcing wires, and
general industrial forming wires. All four grades
are suitable for continuous hot-dip galvanising.

High tensile, high ductility plain carbon steel
for the reinforcing of concrete available with a
unique deformation pattern. The deformation
pattern allows the use of threaded ttings in
a structural connection system developed by
Reid Construction Systems. The product is
available as bar in most standard diameters.
Although essentially a threaded bar, this steel
meets the demanding requirements of the
seismic structural design methods employed
in New Zealand as required by the reinforcing
steel Standard AS/NZS 4671. This reinforcing
derives its superior strength and ductility by
micro-alloying the steel with small vanadium
additions. Grade 500E MA steel is readily:
weldable (refer AS/NZS 1554.3), hot or cold

WIRE
Pacic Steels wire products include a variety of reinforcing wires, zinc/
aluminium coated manufacturing wires, fencing wires, and speciality
amouring and strand wires. A range of tensile strengths and diameters
are produced.
Reinforcing and BCW Wire
Reinforcing wire is produced from plain carbon
steel to meet specic chemical requirements.
Every batch of reinforcing wire is sampled and
diameter and tensile tested.
Bending and cross welding wire (BCW) is
manufactured from a specically developed
low carbon grade steel rod.
Zinc/Aluminium Coated Wire
Zinc/Aluminium coated wire is produced
for manufacturing and fencing applications.
Manufacturing wire is produced with a range
of coating thicknesses. The addition of ve
percent of aluminium alloy to the original
zinc coating makes the wire more durable.

Every batch of reinforcing wire produced by Pacic
Steel Group is sampled and mass per metre and tensile
tested from every fth coil or former produced.
One plain bend test is conducted per batch produced,
over a mandrel of no greater maximum diameter than
that given in the above table.

BCW WIRE (BENDING

BCW is manufactured from a specically
developed low carbon grade steel and will meet
the specications shown below. Although not
guaranteed as a plating quality wire, customers
do chrome plate the product. Pacic Steel BCW
will meet the requirements of BS 1052:1980
Specication for Mild Steel Wire for General
Engineering Purposes.
Pacic Steel generally manufactures BCW wire as standard soap-drawn bright wire to meet the
specications shown in the table below.

BCW WIRE (BENDING

Pacic Steel also produces BCW wire as a
distinctive, cleaned wire. This product is cleaned
in-line during drawing to produce a very
bright nish. Care must be taken by customers
to use the cleaned wire immediately, as the
uncontaminated surface has no lubricant barrier
to protect the steel. Therefore the surface
will quickly begin to rust if the wire is stored.
The physical properties of the available
diameters are shown below.

ZINC/ALUMINIUM COATED
MANUFACTURING WIRE
Zinc/aluminium coated manufacturing wire
is generally produced to meet the property
specications set out in the tables below.
However, manufacturing wire can be produced
with a range of coating thicknesses and with
any combination of low, medium, or high tensile
strengths. The zinc/aluminium coatings are
manufactured to AS/NZS4534:2006 Zinc and
Zinc/Aluminium-Alloy Coatings on Steel Wire.

ZINC/ALUMINIUM COATED
FENCING WIRE
Plain zinc/aluminium-coated fencing wire is
used in the construction of parallel-wire fence
and trellis. To assist with manual handling,
fence wire is usually supplied in relatively small
coils weighing approximately 25kg, although
coils of up to 50kg can also be produced.
These coils are actually manufactured to a
guaranteed minimum length to allow the
quantity of wire required for a fence to be
easily calculated. New Zealand fencing wire is
essentially produced to meet the local fencing
wire Standard NZS3471:1974 Specication
of Galvanised Steel Fencing Wire - Plain and
Barbed, except that the more durable zinc/
aluminium coating is now applied at Pacic Steel.
However, zinc/aluminium coatings are produced
to meet the steel wire coating Standard,
AS/NZS4534:2006.
