Engineers choose galvanising because it’s the most cost effective corrosion protection system with a long, maintenance-free lifespan. Once coated, galvanized steel is immediately ready for use. It provides a tough surface that resists immense damage and it’s environmentally sustainable.

Incorporating galvanising at the onset of project planning ensures the highest quality coating, lowest costs, fastest turnaround times and optimum safety of galvanising personnel.

Areas of particular consideration include:

  • Embrittlement
  • Galvanising reactive steel

Contact Sperrin Galvanisers with any questions or concerns you may have.


Although embrittlement after galvanising is rare, there are two types that pose concerns to Engineers and Fabricators: Hydrogen embrittlement, and Accelerated strain-age embrittlement. Read More…


Galvanizing provides a metallurgical coating, which means the reactivity of the base steel will affect the coating structure and appearance. While most steels are suitable for galvanising and produce a shiny, silver coating, highly reactive steels produce a coating that’s typically two to ten times thicker and composed primarily of zinc-iron alloy. Appearance and adherence to steel are also affected. Read More…
