10 Reasons to Choose Galvanized Steel

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 […]

Environmental Awareness & Galvanized Steel

Environment and Galvanized Steel

Galvanized steel is long-lasting steel. Galvanizing protects steel from rust and corrosion for 50, 75, 100 years and more. Galvanized steel has a growing share of the market for steel. Millions of tons of steel are galvanized every year. And that’s a good thing for the environment. Let’s take a look at some of the […]

Is Plating Zinc the Same as Galvanizing?

is zinc plating the same as galvanizing

Zinc protects iron and steel from the relentless forces of corrosion. Galvanizing iron and steel by dipping them in molten zinc creates an alloy that can, in the right environmental conditions, protect the iron or steel beneath it for 100 years or more. But what about electroplating iron and steel with zinc? Does plating iron […]
