Q. Would the galvanized coating on a traditional chain link fence be expected to be damaged, beyond the obvious burn areas, by an electrical charge from a 7,200 volt primary electric line (30 seconds on and 30 seconds off)? R. S.


A. What????? Wait let me adjust my TV set…Nope it didn’t help. I have no idea what to say. Did you get a wrong number…this is the Powder Coating Clinic.

My only hope is readers can help me out with an answer.
