Home/Checkered Flag Zinc Coated Wire


The low vaporization temperature of the zinc coating enables the wire to have a cooling effect. The porous nature of the Checkered Flag® coated wire provides an increased surface area in contact with the cutting fluid. This allows for a faster cutting speed compared to other coated wires.
