Galvanized wire - hot dipped

Galvanizing is the process where a protective barrier of zinc is applied between the steel and the environment. Zinc is most commonly used because it offers excellent cathodic protection. The coating weight, or thickness, of the zinc is determined by weighing such considerations as; life expectancy of the wire, the type of environment the wire will be exposed to, and cost.  


  • Excellent protective coating that prevents rust and corrosion
  • A variety of coating weights offered to meet different market applications

  • better together

    Situation Skiers count on safety when they go up the mountain

    Solution In close cooperation Bekaert developed superior quality wires that meet the technical customer requirements of ropeway constructors

    Result The customer handles the production of the cables, but also on-site weaving (or splicing) and installation. The cables have a life expectancy up to 40 years

  • better together

    Situation Ultra-strong and length-stable material is needed to reinforce synchronous belts which drive wind turbine blades.

    Solution A high-quality steel cord comprised of 83 twisted wires.

    Result Optimum tensile strength, length stability and adhesion with the rubber belt providing the wind turbine manufacturer with a substantially lighter, maintenance-free and space-saving solution.
