Hot-dip galvanizing provides an excellent and maintenance-free corrosion protection for decades.
Hot-dip galvanizing is a popular surface treatment method in the construction industry, railway, road, and power line construction, as well as in vehicle and machinery structures, and even in outdoor furniture. It can be generalized as a coating for outdoor and moisture-exposed products that are not painted.
Hot-dip galvanizing is an environmentally friendly process that involves protecting steel by coating it with zinc. Before galvanizing, the steel is cleaned through coating with either salt or sulfuric acid and is then immersed in a fastener. Next, the steel is dipped into molten zinc at around 450°C, where a reaction between zinc and steel takes place.
This reaction results in a coating with a thickness ranging from 60 to 150 micrometres (1µm = 0.001 mm). Depending on the interaction between steel and zinc, the coating can be shiny and silvery (with thinner layers) or dark grey and matte (with thicker layers).
For these reasons, hot-dip galvanizing is a favoured surface treatment method in the construction industry, railway, road, and power line construction, as well as in vehicle and machinery structures, and even in outdoor furniture.
Hot-dip galvanizing provides an excellent and maintenance-free corrosion protection for decades. In some cases, we manufacture products directly from hot-dip galvanized sheet metal, avoiding additional processes and expediting the timeline.
