The article offers information on the production of high-strength corrosion-resistance wires and rods with the help of Electrolytic Plasma Technology (EPT). It mentions that EPT process can enhance the cleaning and coating process of wire rods of different sizes. It also informs that EPT-deposited zinc coatings have no intermetallic layers so such coatings provide ductility to wires and rods.
