GALVANIZED WIRE

Alambre Galvanizado

Galvanized wire is manufactured by hot dipping into molten zinc. Its main uses are: welded wire mesh, simple twist trellises, gabions, assembly of electrical cables, folded metal parts, etc.

Coating Classes

A) Reference classes defined with A refer to thick coatings.

Definitions ending with B refer to classes obtained by means of a zinc coating and consecutive resharpening.

Classes C and D refer to low mass coatings.

B) A x 3 indicates a very high mass requirement, 3 times greater than class A.
Our stock standard is class D
