The number one enemy of a wire which is used in various productive contexts is without a doubt corrosion. Namely the natural and irreversible process of material consultation which compromises its characteristics and properties. All materials are at risk and it is up to companies to study and design products that can stand the test of time, both atmospheric and annual. When it comes to metal wires, a solution to this corrosion can be found in the production of zinc and aluminium wires, a particular allow with the following properties:
Trafileria Lecchese srl, based in the province of Lecco, deals with the design and implementation of zinc and aluminium wires. These can be used, for example, in the production of parts which are subject to working conditions affected by oxidising agents. In what way? Aluminium has a corrosion time that is longer than with zinc, which provides the steel with protection. In the case of cladding damage, zinc oxides will cover the part of steel that is damaged. By combining the two elements - zinc and aluminium - It is also combining each element's individual benefits: aluminium's improved resistance to corrosion and zinc's increased level of protection.
