Very corrosion-resistant galvanization is obtained by applying a layer of zinc to a steel sheet. It is this metal that provides steel with reliable protection against oxygen and moisture in any climatic conditions.
Galvanization is obtained by hot-dip galvanizing steel coils, first firing them and then placing them in a zinc bath.
Galvanized steel is distinguished by:
– Sufficiently long service life , which, for some brands, can reach 50 years.
– Considerable durability.
– Environmental friendliness.
– Ease of use.
Given the scope of galvanizing, it is divided into 4 groups:
– General purpose.
– Cold stamping.
– Cold polishing.
– For subsequent painting.
In addition, galvanized sheet can be with a normal zinc layer and with reduced thickness variation.
Galvanization is in great demand in the production of roofing materials, corrugated boards, components of household appliances, equipment for the food industry. The material is no less successfully used in the ship, aircraft and automotive industries.
The price for galvanized sheet is very affordable, which also explains the popularity and demand for the material.
