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. Unlike paint or plating, hot dip galvanizing is infused with the top layer of steel, creating a new top layer of zinc and steel. The process provides long-term corrosion protection with minimal maintenance, 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. Unlike paint or powder coating, galvanizing requires almost no maintenance over it's lifespan.
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 with 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.
