All types of welded and woven wire mesh.
Steel wire is pulled through a zinc bath and afterwards through a zinc aluminum bath (95% zinc, 5% aluminum). When the alloy cools down, the melted mass solidifies the fine crystals. Thanks to the fine and the uniform distribution of the aluminum portion, the corrosion stability of the solidified layer is considerably improved. This zinc-aluminum coating will not come off, even from extremely bent wires!
These coated wires are welded into wire mesh. Due to the high welding temperatures, aluminum diffuses from the zinc-aluminum protection layer into the wire and creates alloys which are the optimum protection against corrosion. Therefore, the welds of the mesh are even more resistant than the rest of the coating.
The zinc-aluminum process has been in existence for approximately 15 years, and has proved to be a considerable improvement in corrosion prevention compared to conventional galvanizing process. The protective layer on the wire is approximately 300 g/m2 or 43 um.
