Galvanizing can occur either before or after wire mesh is manufactured – both in woven form or welded form. Galvanized before woven wire mesh or galvanized before welded wire mesh indicates the individual wires, themselves, used to manufacture the mesh have been galvanized before the mesh is woven or welded. Depending on the mesh (or opening size) and diameter wire, this is usually the less expensive option, especially if custom manufacturing is required.
Galvanized after woven and galvanized after welded wire mesh is exactly as it sounds. The material is manufactured, normally in carbon or plain steel, and is often placed in a galvanizing tank, thereby producing a galvanized after woven or welded specification. Generally speaking, this option is more expensive, depending on availability and other variables, but does offer a higher level of corrosion resistance. This added level of corrosion resistance is most noticeable at the joint or intersection of galvanized after welded wire mesh specification.
