Made from 16 gauge wire, the rings are 10 mm in size and assembled in a 4 in 1 pattern. The rings are protected with a galvanized zinc coating for improved rust resistance. This zinc coating gives the rings the distinctive silver shine and protects the underlying steel from exposure to corrosive substances.
The sleeves on this mail have been designed to be short to keep the weight down and make the mail easier to put on and take off.
