The Story Behind Galvanizing

There’s an interesting little story about how galvanizing began. Ages ago, an alchemist-come-chemist immersed clean iron into molten zinc; to his amazement a shimmering silver coating developed on the iron. This was to become the first step in the genesis of the galvanizing process. While some credit India with developing the first knowledge of true […]

Different Processes of Galvanizing

Galvanizing is a process of coating iron or steel with zinc in order to provide greater protection against corrosion for the iron or steel base. The process of galvanizing sheet iron was developed simultaneously in France and England in 1837. Both of these methods employed a “hot dipping” process to coat sheet iron with zinc. […]

Advantages of Galvanized Pipes

Why Galvanize? Galvanizing (zinc coating) has been used to protect iron and steel from rusting for over one hundreds of years. Galvanizing protects steel from rusting (which it tends to do almost immediately if bare) by forming a protective barrier between the steel and the environment, like paint does. But galvanizing goes one giant step […]

Advantages of Galvanizing process

Protection in internal recesses: No layer can get to the internal recesses like the galvanizing procedure. Complete immersion ensures that the coating comes to every nook as well as cranny so galvanizing gives a much exceptional rust resistance area over a repainted item. Toughest Coating: A galvanized coating has unique benefits because of the metallurgical […]
