Hot Dip Galvanising of Small Components


Small articles may be galvanized by variation on the standard hot dip galvanising process and is known as `Centrifuge (or spin) Galvanising`. In centrifuge galvanizing the work follows the same process route as for larger articles except the items are loaded into a basket which is spun at high speed immediately after

Considerations before Hot Dip Galvanizing: Steel Composition


During the hot dip galvanizing process, iron and steel components are heated to the temperature of the galvanizing bath, of about 450¬įC. While the steel is immersed in the molten zinc, layers on zinc-iron alloy are formed on the surface by a process of diffusion. When the steel components are withdrawn from

Considerations before Hot Dip Galvanizing: Steel Condition


The chemical composition and the condition of the steel which forms the base material are vitally important for successful hot dip galvanizing. They affect the thickness, structure and quality of the galvanized coating. For best results, it is just as important for the customer to ensure that the construction and design are suitable

Bimetallic Corrosion


When two dissimilar metals come into direct contact and an electrolyte such as moisture is present, a battery cell is created and an electrical current flows. This causes the more electronegative or anodic metal as determined from the electro-chemical series (see below) to corrode more rapidly. This means that galvanizing being a

Batch Galvanised vs Pregalvanised Products


It is common misconception that any zinc coating can be termed as galvanizing but this is in fact not the case as there are many different processes by which a zinc coating may be applied. Hot Dip Galvanizing refers only to coatings formed by immersing steelwork into molten zinc. However, there are
