The standard DIN EN 13411-4 specifies the minimum requirements for the molten metal and resin socketing of steel wire ropes according to DIN EN 12385, Parts 4 to 10. The standard is applicable only to those requirements that ensure that the socketing is strong enough to withstand a force of at least 100 % of the minimum breaking force of the rope (that is the socket termination efficiency factor KT = 1,0). Socketing applying the methods and materials described in this standard are for use within the temperature limits given in normative Annex E. Hazards which are dealt with in this European Standard are given in clause 4. Clause 5 of this standard contains safety requirements. The European Standard has been prepared by CEN/TC 168 "Chains, ropes, webbing, slings and accessories - Safety", the secretariat of which is held by BSI (United Kingdom). The responsible national Mirror Committee is Working Committee NA 099-00-04 AA "Drahtseile, Seil-Endverbindungen und Anschlagseile" ("Steel wire ropes, wire terminations and wire rope slings") of NAD.
