ASTM A975 standard, Zinc Aluminum Alloy Gabion Baskets for Water Reservoirs
Zinc aluminum alloly wire is also called galfan wire; it is with 5% or 10% aluminum in the zinc coating to get a better corrosion resistance property.
The wire used to manufacture double twisted gabion wire mesh is soft annealed, mild steel wire provided with heavy zinc coating as per EN 10244/ASTM A 641 to prevent corrosion. In case of use in aggressive environments, it is further extruded with 0.5mm thick PVC Coating. The PVC coating is UV stabilized as per ASTM A 975.
Selvedge / Edge wire which is a thicker and heavier wire is used to reinforce the edges and transverse diaphragm. It gives greater rigidity and shape to the Gabion Basket.
