When iron is extracted from its ore, a fundamental tendency of nature is abruptly reversed. Unless protected, iron and steel will corrode in most environments, slowly returning to their natural state.
Corrosion prevention is an essential factor in the economic utilisation of steel. Provision of the appropriate protective coating can bring initial savings plus substantia! economies in service, due to reduction or elimination of maintenance and lost service time, and by deferring the replacement date of structures and equipment.
Galvanizing is the best solution for corrosion protection, offering significantly greater benefits than paint or any other coating system. In fact, when it comes to handling, durability, coating thickness, application and protection, there’s no comparison.
Architects and Engineers specify galvanizing because it’s the most effective corrosion system with a long, maintenance-free lifespan. And if you’re considering galvanizing, you might want to review the following major, measurable benefits:
