Hot Dip Galvanizing is the Process of Applying a Zinc Coating to Fabricated Iron and Steel components by immersing the Material in a furnace consisting primarily of molten Zinc.
Zinc applied to iron and steel can add many years to the life of a component of facility. It is true that no other coating can match the blockade and cater protection that zinc provides.
Advantages of Galvanizing
- Galvanizing Provides abrasion resistant coating for an exceptionally longer period.
- No other protective coating can match this unique process.
- Since Galvanizing involves coating Zinc with base Steel at a considerably low cost and relatively high negligible maintenance for a longer period, it is the most cost saving and effective cost reduction coating today.
- The galvanized coating becomes part of the steel surface as it forms zinc–iron alloy layers and metallurgically bonds to the base steel.
- The corrosion rate is extremely slow compared to other conventional coatings.
- The mechanical properties of commonly galvanized steel are not affected by galvanizing.
