Essentials for Galvanisation

Before sending your steel for galvanising there are a few essential things that the client needs to keep in mind, to make sure the process is performed safely, efficiently and produce the best possible quality on your end product.

The galvanising process exists out of several steps: after degreasing, pickling and fluxing, the steel materials are submerged in a zinc bath containing a molten zinc-alloy at a temperature of around 447ºC. The zinc that covers the material bonds with the steel, creating an unbreakable layer that protects the steel from corrosion. Galvanised materials are very durable, maintenance-free and they provide unique protection.

To get the most optimised protection, clients need to remove these manufacturing defects before sending their work for galvanising.
