Due to its attractive price point and its corrosion resistance, galvanized wire mesh is very popular among industrial users of wire mesh. Galvanized is not a metal or alloy; it is a process in which a protective zinc coating is applied to steel to prevent rusting. In the wire mesh industry, however, it is often treated as a separate category because of its wide spread use in all types of applications.

Galvanizing can occur either before or after wire mesh is manufactured – both in woven form or welded form. Galvanized before woven wire mesh or galvanized before welded wire mesh indicates the individual wires, themselves, used to manufacture the mesh have been galvanized before the mesh is woven or welded.

On the other hand, galvanized after is manufactured (normally in carbon or plain steel) and is often placed in a galvanizing tank, thereby making this a galvanized after woven or welded specification. Generally speaking, this option is more expensive, depending on availability and other variables, but does offer a higher level of corrosion resistance. This added level of corrosion resistance is most noticeable at the joint or intersection of galvanized after welded wire mesh specification.

Often grouped alongside galvanized wire mesh, vinyl coated wire mesh is typically used in a wide range of general purpose commercial, industrial and residential projects. Vinyl coating adds an additional protective layer of corrosion resistance. Black vinyl coated remains the most popular and is often used in caging, window and machine guards, tree and plant guards, and vent screens.
