Hot Dip Galvanizing offers you long-term protection against rust and corrosion it provides highly cost-effective and long-lasting protection for structural steelwork.

Hot-dip galvanization is the process of coating steel with a thin zinc layer, by passing the metal through a molten bath of zinc at a temperature of around 860 °F (460 °C).

A usually dull grey, fairly strong material that stops further corrosion and protects the steel below from the elements. Galvanized steel is widely used in applications where rust resistance is needed.

Galvanized surfaces can be left in the grey metallic colour or can be painted to your required colour and specification.

We would advise blasting the steelwork prior to galvanising as this ensures a thicker, stronger bond with the zinc.
