HOT DIP GALVANIZING

Hot dip galvanizing is the most efficient form of corrosion protection available and requires no maintenance. The zinc coating provides cathodic protection of the steel. The process of hot dip galvanizing involves a reaction between the two metals, creating an alloy of these metals. This secures a very strong attachment of the zinc to the steel. The alloy is so strong that the steel construction can be transported and handled without damaging the zinc coating.

 

THE PROCESS OF HOT DIP GALVANIZING

  • The steel construction is pre-treated in pickle baths.
  • The steel construction is lowered into a zinc melt with a temperature of approx. 450° C.
  • The steel construction is cleaned of any surplus zinc.
  • Quality control is carried out to ensure am optimum result.

Hot-zinced items may be painted, thus further prolonging their durability.  

The long life of hot dip galvanized steel makes hot dip galvanizing an eco-friendly surface treatment.
