Outstanding corrosion resistance and long life
As soon as the hot dip galvanized item leaves the zinc bath the surface reacts with the oxygen in the air to form a thin, impervious film of zinc oxide that has excellent adhesion and anti-corrosion protection properties.
Enhanced edge and corner protection
Coatings are thicker than plastic-dipped or painted coatings, providing excellent coverage on sharp corners and angles.
Low initial cost combined with long life provides economical protection for long periods – often more than twenty years in hostile environments.
While multi-coat painting can take up to a week, hot dip galvanizing can be achieved in just minutes.
