Hot dip galvanizing process consists of three distinct phases:
Pre-treatment for galvanizing consists of four separate stages:
Material is immersed in molten zinc at a temperature of around 450°C until the temperature of the work is the same as the zinc. During this process the molten zinc reacts with the surface of the steel to form a series of zinc/ iron alloys. These alloy layers protect steel from corrosion in excess of 30–40 years.
As work is removed from the zinc, the zinc on its surface will begin to solidify. As this happens excess zinc is removed to ensure a smooth finish. Work is then usually transferred to a quench tank where it is cooled to allow handling.
The galvanized steel is first visually inspected for its appearance and conformity to standard. Batches may then be non-destructively tested for coating thickness and uniformity.
A tough sustainable coating for steel which coats both inside (box sections) and outside, long life that is maintenance free. No need to wait for coating to dry can be used immediately after galvanizing.
All hot dip galvanizing is done to BS EN ISO 1461 and any warranty will be within that standard
