Galvanizing is one of the oldest metal protection technologies. Its history dates back to antiquity, when it was first used for decoration purposes. Now galvanizing is used for corrosion protection and in the manufacture of equipment that is prone to oxidation, such as tools, steel products, automobiles and more.
As the name suggests, galvanizing is a process of coating metal surfaces with a thin layer of zinc, which protects the material against weather and aggressive chemicals, and its surface treatment is usually carried out by galvanizing.
Galvanizing is a process that is usually carried out in special galvanizing vats, which are most often filled with zinc acid or zinc solution. The metal products to be coated are placed in these vats. At the completion of the process, the metal products are removed and rinsed to remove excess chemical.
Galvanizing is often combined with other techniques such as painting or staining. These techniques are used to protect metal surfaces from mechanical or weather damage.
Galvanizing can be a very useful process for preventing damage and corrosion of metal surfaces and is therefore used by many industries. Its popularity is further increased due to its affordability and ease of use.
