Fully and lightly galvanized wire requires a series of manufacturing processes before the final physical and metallurgical properties can be achieved. Galvanized wire coils are used for a number of applications within Cape Gate to produce final products that are sold off to customers in various industries. These customers range from the cable armouring sector to agricultural firms. The zinc coated wire that is sold off to customers has desirable characteristics of being robust in applications where corrosion resistance is required.
