Galvanized Music Wire

Galvanized Music Wire is generally a redrawn hot dipped or electrogalvanized product.  It offers additional corrosion resistance to the standard phosphate coated music wire properties.  The physical properties of the wire are found in the music wire product page.

A commercial coating weight is standard but specific weights of coatings can be produced according to the customer requirements.
