Zinc coated carbon steel offers some corrosion resistance. G1070 is the most common grade used in aircraft cable and wire rope. It remains ductile over long periods of working. Usually higher break strengths than stainless steels.

Stranded galvanized steel wire is made of carbon steel zinc plated. The single wires are concentrically stranded and wrapped helically around a central wire. The zinc coating offers corrosion resistance, allowing varied use for weaving of galvanized wire mesh, galvanized hardware cloth, welded iron wire mesh, chicken netting, etc.
The galvanized single steel wires or stranded steel wires are suitable for cores of ACSR to improve its tensile strength. And they can also be used in the aerial transmission line as the line material of ground connection to avoid the lightning strike.
