Galvanized Iron Welded Wire Mesh -
Zinc plating is not a metal or alloy; it is a process of applying a protective zinc coating on steel to prevent rust.
Galvanized welded wire mesh type:
Galvanized iron welded wire mesh cloth is cheap and practical, and has a wide range of uses. As the name suggests, it is coated with a thin layer of zinc on the surface of the welded mesh to prevent rust. It has two different surface treatments, galvanizing before welding and galvanizing after welding . Welds, both have advantages and disadvantages.
Galvanized iron welded wire mesh before welding
Before welding, the galvanized electric welding wire mesh is directly welded with galvanized iron wire into various mesh sizes. But during the welding process. The zinc layer at each welding intersection is destroyed, resulting in easy rust at the welding point. Humid environment because they have lost their galvanizing protection.
Galvanized iron welded wire mesh after welding
The galvanized welded mesh after welding has a longer life than the galvanized welded mesh before welding. Because it is made by dipping the untreated surface welded mesh into molten zinc, and the entire mesh including the solder joints is covered by more zinc . Thus, the welded wire mesh galvanized before welding is generally cheaper than galvanizing after welding.
Some of the more popular uses and applications of galvanized wire mesh are listed below:
- Fences, cages and fences
- Farms, gardens and agricultural uses
- Windows and safety guards
- Archaeological use
- Construction works
- Filler board
- High security application
- Landscaping and gabion
- Wall and stone preservation
- Greenhouse use
- Particle separation
- General industrial use
