There are two kinds of galvanized barbed wire: hot-dip galvanized barbed wire and electro galvanized barbed wire.
Zinc surface density: (the more zinc, the corrosion resistance is stronger.)
Hot-dip galvanized barbed wire
- Core wire（g/㎡）: 80, 114, 175, 260
- Barb wire（g/㎡）: 60, 85 147 240
Electro-galvanized barbed wire
- Core wire（g/㎡）: 8-14
- Barb wire（g/㎡）: 8-14
Hot-dip galvanized barbed wire is the most popular because of its high zinc content, stronger corrosion resistance, and longer service life. The surface of electro-galvanized barbed wire looks smooth and bright, but it contains less zinc and has poor corrosion resistance, so the cost is relatively lower.
