Spin galvanizing is used to protect small parts such as hinges, nuts and bolts, bracketry and fixings, whereas hot dip galvanizing is used for large fabrications such as fencing and guardrails.
Small items such as nuts and bolts, chains and screws need to be as rust resistant as the steel structures they support, however they are too small to galvanize in a hot dip galvanizing bath. With spin galvanizing small items can be placed in a perforated basket and immersed into molten zinc. Once the zinc/alloy layers form, the basket is centrifuged at high speed so that the spinning action removes the excess zinc and creates a clean profile.
Whilst we do not spin galvanize from our Corby and Hull plants, we can arrange it for you through our sister plant, Joseph Ash Telford.
The benefits you’ll receive from Telford’s spin galvanizing services include:
Telford’s spin galvanizing bath size (basket only) is 250mm diameter by 500mm long.Next page
To protect any parts of the steel that perhaps need to be drilled or cut after galvanization, spray them with Galvsafe – a unique galvanizing zinc repair spray developed by Joseph Ash at the request of our customers.
