Vinyl Coated - VC - welded wire fencing and meshes are both long lasting and attractive. Galvanized welded mesh is coated with a thick layer of PVC which is tightly bonded to the wire by a heat process. The coating is flexible and will not crack when the wire is bent. It is stable over a wide temperature range, maintaining its qualities in extremes of both hot and cold temperatures. UV inhibitors are in the vinyl to retard degradation from sunlight. The coating is also very resistant to scraping and abrasion. Vinyl coated welded wire mesh and fence, sometimes referred to as plastic coated wire products, are very strong and durable. They are long lasting and rust resistant. They have double protection. Not only does the vinyl coating seal the wire from water and other corrosive elements, but the underlying mesh is also protected by a zinc coating.
Galvanized core wire mesh is coated with a thick layer of black PVC, tightly bonded to the wire. The entire hardware cloth mesh is thoroughly sealed and protected against rust and corrosion. This material will last! The 1/2" mesh, sometimes called 2 mesh, is lighter in weight and strength than the 16 gauge 1/2"x1/2" mesh and therefore costs less. Particularly useful for animal enclosures and exclusion barriers - applications where a light mesh, rust prevention and long life are desired. It can be used as low cost flooring for chukar pens, though we recommend the heavier 16 gauge material. 1/4" mesh is ideal for problem wildlife exclusion. The black color is virtually invisible when installed. And the mesh will last for years.
