WHY USE HOT DIP GALVANIZNG?
What is Galvanizing?
Hot dip galvanizing is the process by which clean steel is immersed into molten zinc to obtain a coating that is metallurgically bonded to it. The process provides long term corrosion protection, as well as many additional benefits that may sometimes be overlooked, forgotten or misunderstood.
Galvanized Steel is designed to last, in certain conditions for over 75 years.
The increased longevity of galvanized steel will lower maintenance costs and, in the long run, also reduce the environmental impact of maintenance work, building costs, and scrapped metal.
Galvanization is a process that has been around for a long time and has a mature industry built around it. Our galvanization facility and process has been specifically designed to meet ASTM standards and to provide you the highest possible level of quality and assurance.
Unlike paint, powder coats or other metal treatments which can scratch or peel, compromising the protection, galvanization is a chemical reaction that creates an impenetrable chemical bond between the steel and the molten zinc.
