What are the choices of raw materials for razor wire manufacturing?
For metal products, the selection of raw materials is very important, which directly affects product performance, appearance, service life and even later maintenance costs. In this article, we will recommend several common raw material selection options for razor wire.
Razor wire, also called barbed tape or concertina wire, is easy to install and acts as a visual deterrent as well as a physical barrier, which is extremely difficult to climb. It is made of galvanized or stainless steel materials for different environments and security grade. Both blades and core wire of razor wire is manufactured in galvanized or stainless steel, which can prevent the blades rusting and becoming blunt and maximally. We offer several different combinations of materials, which you can choose them according to your needs.
丨Most Durable = Blade （Stainless Steel Plate）+ Core Wire（Stainless Steel Wire）
- This is the best raw material, blades and core wire are made of high-quality stainless steel. It will never rust and remain shining appearance even after several years’ usage. Because of the characteristics of stainless steel, its blades are harder and sharper than ordinary materials and are not easy to blunt. it is almost impossible to cut without specialized tools – and even then, it is a slow and dangerous job. Similarly, the cost of stainless steel razor wire is very high.
丨Medium Grade = Blade （Stainless Steel Plate）+ Core Wire（Galvanized Steel Wire）
- The tensile strength and durability of this material combination are slightly worse than stainless steel razor wire, but the protective performance is similar and the manufacturing cost is lower.
丨Most Economical = Blade （Galvanized Steel Plate）+ Core Wire（Galvanized Steel Wire）
- This combination is the most popular. It is regarded as a highly effective and economical barrier system. It is popular in military sites, the national border, governments，because using galvanized razor wire in large quantities does not require too high a cost. Among them, the corrosion resistance of hot-dip galvanizing is much higher than that of electro-galvanizing.
| Colorful: Blade（Powder Coating Steel Plate）+ Core Wire（Powder Coating Steel Wire）
- Powder coated razor wire refers to adding an extra powder coating to galvanized razor wire. It is designed to enhance corrosive resistance and appearance. Available in green, red, yellow or special colors. Usually, the green option is the most popular, because it can easily integrate with the surrounding environment, looks beautiful and natural.
