About hot-dip galvanizing
Galvanizing as mentioned above is an operation of a metal product immersion into the tank with hot (melted) zinc. This operation is very laborious however it guaranties excellent rust protection and has considerable advantages in comparison with other rust protection methods of metal products. The metal alloy reacts with molten zinc forming a tightly bonded compound that guarantees a high quality corrosion protection. The information in this area regarding strength, durability, cost and stability refers to the galvanizing only. It is extremely important to understand and realize that not every product can be galvanized by this method. As galvanized products can be applied not in every area of activity the application of certain structures also should be considered. To understand the methods of galvanizing it’s needed to look through the history, namely to its origins, approximately 79th year BC.
