“Is Galvanized Steel Magnetic? Why or Why Not? “

One of the questions we hear frequently concerns whether galvanized steel is magnetic, and why or why not. The simple answer is that galvanized steel is magnetic, usually. Explaining why galvanized steel is almost always magnetic requires that we start with the definition of galvanized steel. What is Galvanized Steel? Galvanizing is the process of […]

11 Facts about Hot-Dip Galvanizing

The hot-dip galvanizing process is very interesting to say the least. It involves coupling fabricated steel with molten zinc. The alloy produced from this reaction is bonded to the steel or iron, ensuring the prevention of corrosion.  The fact is that without hot-dip galvanizing, steel and iron corrosion are inevitable. Speaking of facts, let’s learn […]

Hot-dip galvanizing is a process of applying a layer of molten zinc to steel to give it extraordinary durability, that lowers maintenance and repair costs — for 50, 75, and sometimes up to 100 years — by protecting steel from rust and corrosion. Painting and plastic coatings protect steel as long as they stay intact, […]

How Long Does Galvanized Steel Last in Extreme Temperatures?

Hot dip galvanized (HDG) steel goes through a special process that gives it the absolute best protection available against corrosive agents in the environment and extremes of temperature. The same way HDG steel doesn’t corrode when it’s exposed to rain and snow, it also stands up well in extreme heat and extreme cold. That’s because […]

Why is Galvanizing Better than Tinning?

Why is Galvanizing Better than Tinning?

Galvanizing isn’t the only method of protecting steel and fabricated iron from corrosion and rust. There are occasions that steel and iron are protected by tinning, the application of a thin layer of tin over the surface of the underlying metal. Tinning is Not Just Used to Prevent Rust Metals are tinned by dipping them […]
