Galvanized steel wire is coated with zinc to protect it from corrosion called galvanization. The galvanization process involves applying a zinc layer to the steel wire's surface, creating a barrier that prevents oxygen and water from reaching the steel, which causes it to rust. It is often used as an electrical conductor because it is less to corrode than other types of wire. Galvanized steel wire is an important material that helps prolong steel products' life and protect them from the elements.

Types of Galvanized Wire

Galvanized wires are available in several variations, depending on the techniques applied during the manufacturing process. The types available include:

Agricultural Wire
Used in the agricultural industry, has a greater tensile strength and is lightweight for dependable bailing wire solutions, allowing you to focus on crop cultivation.

Galvanized Wire
Coated in molten zinc for rust resistance and enhanced tensile strength, it is ideal for wet and demanding applications like waste and metal baling, offering durability in outdoor environments. We offer this wire on a carrier/stand or box wire.

High Tensile Galvanized Wire
High tensile galvanized wire: also coated in zinc, but this type of wire has a much lower carbon content and more steel making it stronger. It's available on a carrier/stand, straight and cut wire, single and double-loop bale ties.

Bale Ties - Single-Loop and Double-Loop
Available in single-loop and double-loop varieties, is a flexible wire used for bundling materials like carboard, metal, and hay in recycling and heavy-duty packaging.
