Electro Galvanized Wire

Electro galvanized wire is an affordable solution. It features with uniform and bright surface, good corrosion resistance, and good ductility. That’s why it is widely used as binding wire or as material for making wire mesh, fences, ropes, small crafts, packaging wire, and other daily uses, etc. Generally, the common zinc coating thickness of cold galvanized wire is 3 to 15 g/m2. But at Wanzhi Steel, the zinc layer can reach up to 25 g/m2 in thick, which provides better anti-rust, anti-pollution, and anti-oxidation performance. More than that, we also have hot dipped galvanized wires and PVC-coated wires for sale. Welcome to contact us for more information.

Characteristics of Cold Galvanized Wire

Galvanized wires are popular in construction, handicrafts, wire mesh, packaging, daily uses, and other fields. Below let’s review its features.

1. Low costs. Compared with hot-dipped galvanized wire, the production cost of cold galvanized wire is much lower. So its selling price is cheaper as well.
2. Bright and smooth appearance. Electro-galvanization applies a thin zinc layer, which makes its surface is smooth and shiny, silvery-white but a little yellow. Its decorative performance makes it very popular among customers.
3. Good corrosion resistance. The zinc layer will generate a dense zinc carbonate film on the wire surface to effectively protect the internal from corrosion. So it has good anti-rust properties.
4. Relatively pure and firm coating. The pure zinc coating makes it no porosity so that it corrodes slowly in the mist of acid, alkali, etc., and can effectively protect the steel substrate.
5. Excellent ductility. It can be formed by cold punching, rolling, bending, etc. without damaging the coating.

Uses of  Electro Galvanized Steel Wire

Cold galvanized wire is not as corrosion-resistant as hot-dipped galvanized wire. So it is not recommended for corrosive environments. But due to its affordable price and smooth finish, it is also popularly used in construction, decoration, industry, farming, barrier and isolation, and other fields. Generally, cold galvanized wires are suitable for making wire mesh, fences, wire ropes, steel cables, clothes hangers, filter baskets, barbed wires, tie wires, etc.

What Is Electro Galvanized Steel Wire?

Electro galvanized wire, also called cold galvanized wire, is a kind of galvanized wire by using electro galvanizing process. Electro galvanization is a process to apply a layer of zinc to steel wire by electroplating. The zinc layer is thinner than that of hot-dipped GI wires. It has features like strong flexibility, great plasticity, good corrosion resistance, etc. The making process is shown below:
Steel rod coil (Low carbon steel)- pre-treatment – wire drawing – annealing – pickling – rust removing – cold galvanizing – wire coiling – quality control – packaging for sale

Will Electro Galvanized Wire Rust?

Certainly. Both hot-dipped and cold galvanized wires will rust. But the latter one will rust quicker than the former one. It is because of the difference in zinc coating thickness. Rusting is not only due to the active chemical property of iron but also has a lot to do with external conditions−water and oxygen. Moisture is one of the substances that make iron easy to rust. However, water alone does not make iron rust. Only when oxygen in the air is dissolved in the water, the oxygen reacts with iron in an environment with water, and a thing called iron oxide is formed. It is called rust. The rust of electro galvanized wire is a brownish-red substance, not as hard as iron, and easy to fall off. However, if the rust is not removed in time, it will be particularly easy to absorb water and accelerate the decay.
