Introduction of Hot-Dip Galvanizing
The word 'Galvanizing' is taken from that of an Italian physiologist named "LUIGI GALVANI" since 1830.
Hot Dip Galvanizing is a process by which iron and steel are treated to prevent rusting.
Corrosion prevention is an essential factor in the economic utilization of stell. Provision of the appropriate protective coating can bring initial savings plus substantial economics in service, due to reduction or elimination of maintenance, painting and lost service time, and by deferring the date of equipment replacement.
In many cases galvanizing provides ideal corrosing protection for steel. In suitable applications no other protective coating matches galvanizing's unique combination of low first cost, ease of inspection for coating quality, durability, predictable performance, low maintenance and resistance to impact and mechanical damage.
The Hot-Dip Galvanizing process, in essence, it involves dipping the article with a chemically clean surface into a bath of molten zinc which reacts with the iron and forms a coating.
