Hot Dip Galvanized


Hot Dip Galvanizing is a recognized and effective method to protect steel from corrosion. This process has been known since the 18th century, and the modern process is still based on the original principles.

The hot galvanization process takes place at stationary plants with large dipping tubs. The steel is pre-treated and dipped in liquid zinc. The treated steel can be utilized immediately after cooling.

In regular paint- and electrical galvanizing, the zinc is layered on top of the steel. Hot dip galvanizing allows zinc and iron to interact to create a protective iron/zinc alloy. This alloy makes the surface more resistant to mechanical wear and tear and protects the layer itself from damage.

The steel gets a maintenance free corrosion protection which lasts for decades. There are examples of hot dip galvanized steel over 100 years old – still protected against rust and fully usable.

Hot dip galvanizing is done according to standards NS-EN ISO 1461 or NS 1845.
