Galvanized Steel Guy Wire - High Corrosion Resistance
When you buy steel wire for your company, its value changes based on factors like longevity. Breakage and other damage lead to costly replacements. One of the greatest threats to your steel wire's lifespan is corrosion, which can compromise its structural integrity and lead to breakage. If your company uses unprotected steel wire strand for important applications like fencing, you'll likely start experiencing problems in short order.
To prevent corrosion, manufacturers use an array of coating methods such as galvanization. Bekaert offers Class A, Class B and Class C zinc coatings for our steel wire, including guy wire, messenger wire, and overhead ground wire.
At Bekaert, we can also coat our steel wires with Bezinal® — our own line of zinc and aluminum alloys — for the highest corrosion resistance possible. These coatings are the most effective method for protecting steel wire. According to our research, wires with a Bezinal® coating resist corrosion between two and six times longer than wires coated with other materials. That kind of longevity lowers repair costs and saves your company from expending time and resources to replace corroded wire.
We can prove how effective our alloys are at preventing corrosion. Both zinc and Bezinal® coatings undergo rigorous testing before we apply them to our products.
