Code:

The product code helps my order processing software. The first 2 letters are the material, the next 2 are the wire gauge and the rest are the link size.

Name:

A description of the ring

Wire dia:

Nominal wire diameter as given to me by the manufacturer.

the link. Note that the brass and hard stainless rings are significantly larger then the rods that the wire is wrapped around.

Links/Kg:

The number can be useful when calculating the number of links in a piece, the weight of a piece or for comparison shopping.

Links / sq. ft and Kg / sq. ft.

The number of links per square foot of 4 in 1 mail can help you determine how many links you need for your project. Go here to determine how many square feet of mail you need.

Temper

The temper of the metal determines how hard it is. The harder the metal the more brittle, the more difficult to work with and the stronger it is.
