Galvanised Sheet Metal

Galvanised Sheet Metal

Hot-dip galvanizing and galvanised sheet metal is the process of coating steel with a thin zinc layer, by passing the steel through a molten bath of zinc at a temperature of around 860 °F (460 °C). This layer stops further corrosion in many circumstances, protecting the mild steel substrate from the elements. Galvanized steel is widely used in applications where rust resistance is needed, and can be identified by the crystallization patterning on the surface (often called a “spangle”).

The process of hot-dip galvanizing results in a metallurgical bond between zinc and steel with a series of distinct iron-zinc alloys. The resulting coated steel can be used in much the same way as uncoated. Galvanized steel can be welded; however, one must exercise caution around the resulting zinc fumes. Galvanized steel is suitable for high-temperature applications of up to 392 °F (200 °C).

Uses:
Galvanized steel is commonly used in automotive, fabrications and many other outside structures due to its good protective qualities.
