Galvanized steel is a hot-dipped coated metal that provides customers with better resistance to corrosive environments.
To create galvanized steel, cold rolled steel is submerged into a molten zinc bath, known as the hot-dip process (galvanization can also be achieved through continuous galvanizing). When the material is removed from the zinc bath and cooled a reaction to the oxygen in the air occurs. The reaction causes the zinc coating to become part of the steel creating the well-recognized spangled finish.
Applications for Hot Dipped Galvanized Steel Products
Galvanized steel is well suited for applications that need rust-resistant materials at a competitive price, ultraviolet light protection and easy integration with other materials. Industries that use hot-dipped galvanized steel products include:
- Pipe and Tubular
- Outdoor Recreation
