Gal-bond is the process of galvanizing on mild steel metal after galvanized sheets get used to making the perforation/expanded mesh so the top and bottom of these perforated sheets/expanded mesh are galvanized but the perforation/expanded mesh part of the metal sheet and all the borders which cut from the coil is not galvanized anymore. If the customer wants to use the gal bond perforated sheet/expanded mesh for an outdoor application, they must get some protection treatment paint or powder-coating get done to stop the internal steel from rusting.



Brass, Bronze & Copper products can suit their aesthetic purpose for a limited period of time. When these materials are exposed to air or moisture in the air, they start oxidizing and these materials fade from their original appearance. There is no such specific treatment to prevent both, the oxidization of material and retaining the material’s original appearance at the same time.



Stainless steel is a low-maintenance material but not maintenance-free. Even it has been painted or it will require maintenance. Long life can be achieved with stainless steel wire and mesh providing the grade that best fits the application selected, applying the appropriate fabrication and following installation procedures – and with regular cleaning undertaken – its atheistic appeal will be retained.

What is tea staining?

Tea staining is a brown discoloration of the surface of stainless steel caused by corrosion. It is a cosmetic issue that does not affect the structural integrity or life of the stainless steel. Tea staining occurs most commonly within 5-10km of coastal areas however it can also occur in polluted urban environments.


Surface contamination in the form of deposits must be prevented. These deposits may be minute particles of iron or rust from other sources such as tools previously used on carbon steel. There are also naturally occurring atmospheric conditions which produce deposits, such as salt from marine environments. The more aggressive the environment is the more regular the cleaning program will be required.



The cleaning frequency of stainless steel depends on four points;

  • The environment
  • Position of the stainless-steel structure
  • Stainless steel surface finish and structure design
  • Client’s expectations

A rule of thumb for cleaning external stainless steel is when you clean the surrounding windows also clean the stainless steel.


Environment Grade 304 Grade 316
Clean Inland 3 – 6 months 4 -8 months
Polluted urban/Industrial Not suitable 4 -8 months
Coastal/Marine (not splashed) Not suitable 3 – 6 months

Source: ASSDA

Note: Rainwater is an effective natural cleaner, stainless steel that does not get rained upon will need more frequent cleaning.

Must clean the stainless-steel products with a soft plastic brush and dishwashing liquid and then rinse off with tap water with little pressure to remove all the dust and soap particles. Do this twice for every clean.


Stainless steel can be contaminated by carbon steel which will lead to corrosion. When stainless steel is fabricated with carbon steel metal or used with carbon steel attachment clamps, screws, or other accessories for fabrication will lead to corrosion. Ideally, a fabricator will have a dedicated workshop and tools for stainless steel only.

Contamination can be picked up from:

  • Grinding wheels, wire brushes, and finishing belts
  • Steel storage racks
  • Tooling used with other metals
  • Contamination from grinding or welding sparks from nearby carbon steel fabrication

It is recommended that when stainless steel is to be used for external purposes that it be electro-polished.
