Galvanized Wire Mesh is available in two basic types of structure (construction) types, Woven or Welded.
The Basic Types are Galvanizing are Galvanized Before (GB) and Galvanized After (GA)
Galvanized Before is typically Electro-Galvanized wire. Electro-Galvanizing results in a highly consistent thickness of bonded zinc having a smooth surface. The finish is typically bright and evenly colored in appearance. The service life will be similar to that of Hot Dip Galvanizing if the application is static or not subjected to surface wear such as abrasion.

Hot Dip Galvanizing will have some inconsistency in thickness although the coating thickness will not go below the specified minimum according to industry approved quality standard (ASTM A123 / A123M).     The surface tends to somewhat rough to the feel which is often thought to be rustic (rugged) and therefore more durable. The color will vary between areas and may be shiny in some and dull in others. if the mesh is exposed to abrasive wear it will be more durable than a Galvanized before product.

Please Note: Either type of galvanizing will have exposed bare metal if sawed or sheared to alter the mesh shape or dimension. This exposure will result in moisture migration (wicking) between the layer of zinc and the bare wire beneath. If left exposed (untreated) over time the moisture will continue to travel between the layers as it continues to rust although not visible the rust damage will continue to grow slowly over time until it fails completely and will need to be replaced.  This hidden damage can be prevented by applying a generous layer of zinc rich that may be applied by brush or spray to seal any exposed bare metal.

The method of Structure (either Woven or Welded) combined with the Process (either Electro-Galvanized or Hot Dip Galvanized) is shown for each specification listed below that are currently in stock. Always confirm the Structure and Process are what is expected when your ready to purchase.
