Published on:

2024-03-08

The raw material for PVC coated galvanized iron wire is high-quality iron wire(Q195/Q235). The galvanization process and PVC coating provide excellent rust and corrosion resistance, enhancing the strength and durability of the PVC coated galvanized iron wire. This makes the PVC coated galvanized iron wire very suitable for outdoor use, such as for binding or making wire mesh fences.

PVC Coated Galvanized Wire: A Comprehensive Guide


PVC coated wire is commonly available in three types: PVC coated iron wire, PVC coated black annealed iron wire, and PVC coated galvanized iron wire. Among these, PVC coated galvanized iron wire has the widest range of applications due to its unique properties.  SUNSHINE Group will reveal everything you need to know about PVC coated galvanized iron wire.

I. Introduction

PVC coated galvanized wire also called PVC coated GI wire.

PVC coated galvanized iron wire is widely used material in construction projects.PVC coated galvanized iron wire is created by coating a layer of polyvinyl chloride (PVC) over a galvanized iron wire core. This process enhances the PVC coated galvanized iron wire's durability, corrosion resistance, and overall performance. Additionally, the PVC layer provides a smooth and uniform surface finish, enhancing the wire's aesthetic appeal and facilitating easier handling and installation.
PVC coated galvanized iron wire finds extensive use in various industries, including construction, agriculture and fencing. PVC coated galvanized iron wire is commonly used for making fences, wire mesh, poultry netting, garden trellises, and other structures requiring corrosion-resistant and durable materials.

 


 

 

II. Properties of PVC coated galvanized wire

 A. Galvanized iron wire core

1. Definition and process of galvanization

The galvanized iron wire is made from high quality iron wire(Q195/Q235),and then coating low carbon steel with zinc to protect the low carbon steel wire from corrosion.

There are generally two types of iron wire galvanization methods: electro galvanization and hot-dip galvanization.

Electro galvanization,  involves depositing a thin layer of zinc onto the surface of iron wire through an electrochemical process. 

Hot-dip galvanization, on the other hand, involves immersing the iron wire into a bath of molten zinc at high temperatures. As the iron wire is removed from the bath, the zinc cools and solidifies, forming a thicker protective layer. This method is often used for larger items or those that require a more durable coating.

2. Benefits of galvanized core

Galvanized iron wire,( low carbon steel)iron wire, and black annealed iron wire share similar functions and can all be used as raw materials for PVC coated wire. However, since (low carbon steel ) iron wire lacks a protective coating, its durability is inferior to that of galvanized iron wire and black annealed iron wire. Black annealed iron wire, on the other hand, does not offer the same rust and corrosion resistance as galvanized iron wire. Therefore, galvanized iron wire is considered a superior material for making PVC coated wire.

 B. PVC wire coating

Galvanized iron wire,PVC coated galvanized iron wire and black annealed iron wire all possess certain anti-rust and corrosion resistance properties, making them quite suitable for use as binding wire in the construction tasks. However, PVC-coated galvanized iron wire has an added layer of PVC protection on the surface of the galvanized iron wire, which enhances its rust and corrosion resistance capabilities. The PVC coated galvanized iron wire boasts greater strength and durability, a longer service life, and is more suitable for use outdoors in harsh environments.

While the price of PVC coated galvanized wire is higher, the PVC coating provides a strong protection and durability for the PVC coated galvanized iron wire, resulting in low maintenance costs over time. Therefore, PVC coated galvanized iron wire offers great value for money.


III. Applications of PVC coated galvanized wire

Fencing: PVC coated galvanized iron wire is widely used for wire mesh fencing purposes,.For instance, PVC coated galvanized iron wire can be used for poultry enclosures or maintaining land integrity. The PVC coating provides excellent corrosion resistance, ensuring long-term durability and low maintenance requirements.

Agriculture: In agriculture, PVC coated galvanized iron wire is employed for various applications such as vineyard trellising, crop support.Its resistance to rust and corrosion makes PVC coated galvanized iron wire suitable for outdoor use in agricultural settings.

Construction: PVC coated galvanized wire is utilized in construction projects for applications like wire mesh reinforcement, concrete reinforcement, and structural support. The strength, durability, and corrosion resistance of PVC coated galvanized iron wire make it an ideal choice for demanding construction environments.

Gardening and Landscaping: PVC coated galvanized wire is commonly used in gardening and landscaping projects for creating trellises, plant supports, and garden borders. The PVC coating protects the PVC coated galvanized iron wire from rust and corrosion, ensuring longevity in outdoor environments.

Craft and DIY Projects: PVC coated craft wire is popular in sculpture, jewelry making, and wire art. The flexibility and corrosion resistance of PVC coated galvanized iron wire make it easy to work with and suitable for indoor and outdoor decorative applications.

PVC coated wire hangers: PVC-coated galvanized iron wire is highly suitable for making clothes hangers or clotheslines for outdoor drying due to its strong load-bearing capacity and resistance to corrosion from moisture and oxygen.


VI. Conclusion

PVC-coated galvanized iron wire is widely popular in the industrial, agricultural, and construction projects.Galvanized iron wire possesses excellent anti-corrosion and rust-inhibiting properties, and the galvanized coating also provides increased strength to the iron wire. In addition, PVC coating adds an extra layer of protection on top of the galvanized treatment, making the PVC-coated galvanized iron wire less susceptible to rust even when exposed to moisture and oxygen, thus extending its lifespan.
