Differences Between Galvanized and PVC Coated Wire Mesh

1. Durability Comparison

Galvanized wire mesh has a uniform zinc layer on the surface that protects the mesh from rust and corrosion. This layer of zinc makes the wire mesh more durable and allows it to be used for a long time.PVC coated wire mesh adds another layer of protection to the zinc coating. This makes the mesh one step up in rust and corrosion protection. As a result, PVC coated wire mesh tends to last longer.

2. Appearance Comparison

PVC coated wire mesh is available in many colors, such as green, yellow, black, and white. While galvanized wire mesh tends to have a silver appearance. By comparison, you can find that PVC coated wire mesh will be more attractive. If you want your fence to be more beautiful, then PVC coated wire mesh is the best choice.

3. Price Comparison

PVC coated wire mesh is more expensive compared to galvanized wire mesh. This is because the cost of the polyethylene coating on the wire adds to the cost of the final product. In addition, the additional handling and processing during the manufacturing process also add to its cost. As a result, it will have a more expensive price.

Which One Should I Buy?

If you are planning to buy a wire mesh but don’t know how to choose, please refer to the following and then make a decision.

1. Decide According to Your Budget

How much money are you prepared to invest in the wire mesh? This will determine which coating is right for you. If you have a low budget, you can choose the relatively inexpensive galvanized coating. Conversely, if you have enough budget, you can choose the more durable PVC coating.

2. Choose According to Your Usage Environment

If it is only used at home or school, galvanized wire mesh is sufficient. It has the most basic corrosion protection. If you intend to use it in a harsh environment, such as near the sea or in an acidic factory area. Then PVC coated wire mesh will be more suitable.
