Steel and concrete are the most important materials in the construction of multi-storey car parks. They are frequently used in combination with each other. For example, the steel structure can be used together with a composite floor of steel. Steel can be readily recycled. Galvanizing does not reduce this recyclability. Zinc too can be recycled. …

Staining and Discolouration of Hot Dip Galvanized Steel

Galvanized steelwork can be subject to staining and discolouration which can sometimes be mistaken for failure of the coating and rusting of the base steel. There are numerous reasons why such staining may take place and there are summaries below. Surface Contamination One of the most common causes of discolouration is general surface contamination with …

Using Life cycle assessment

Life Cycle Assessments (LCA) to compare corrosion protection systems When it comes to possible corrosion prevention systems for steel structures, the choice often lies between Hot Dip Galvanizing and paint. In addition to classical criteria for selecting suitable systems such as service life, functionality or costs, ecological considerations are also increasingly important. A study by …
