Hot Dip Galvanizing Process
Published at : 08 Dec 2021
Hot-dip galvanizing process is the immersion of iron or steel articles in molten zinc to apply a protective coating. All material processed is in accordance with EN ISO 1461: 2009.
When the clean iron or steel component is dipped into the molten zinc (at 450°C) a series of zinc-iron alloy layers are formed by a metallurgical reaction between the iron and zinc. Upon withdrawal from the galvanizing bath a layer of molten zinc will be taken out on top of the alloy layer. This cools to exhibit the bright shiny appearance associated with galvanized products.
