Product category: Steel wire with metallic coating
Bezinal® coated steel wire
Bezinal® coated wires resist corrosion 2 to 6 times longer in heavily polluting corrosion tests than hot-dip galvanized wires and last up to 8 times longer in heavily polluted areas. This is thanks to the formation of the dense and high quality passivation layer that is mainly formed by aluminum oxides.
Bekaert offers a wide range of coated steel wires for the production of hauling and carrier ropes. The wires that make up the rope core are of consistent quality. They feature high tensile strength and excellent ductility, leading to optimal fatigue resistance and a high breaking load. The combination of these features provides the right requirements for any traction or track rope: safety, stability, durability and less maintenance.
Bezinal® XC coated wire for an improved coilability of critical springs
Even under heavy deformation and exposure to high stress-relieving temperatures, this zinc aluminum coating is able to maintain its integrity and high corrosion protection level, eliminating the need for any post-coating processes.
Moreover, Bezinal® XC coated wire has reduced flaking and limited dust formation when coiled as compared with wire coated with zinc or even our standard Bezinal® coatings. The beneficial end results are less machine cleaning time and higher production efficiencies, especially in cases where optical measurement systems are used. Therefore, Bezinal® XC coated wire can in some cases equal the performance of non-metallic coated wire (phosphated).
