Galvanizing in UAE
Galvanization is the process of adding a protective coating of zinc to iron or steel to prevent rusting. There are different kinds of methods that are used to apply zinc and some of the most common methods are: zinc electroplating, mechanical plating, Sherardizing and hot dip galvanizing. Hot-dip galvanizing is the process where iron or steel is dipped in molten zinc. This process gives a thick coating of zinc and a layer is formed between the inner surface of the zinc and the iron or steel. Electro galvanizing is the immersion of iron or steel in a solution of zinc sulfate and cyanide. Sherardizing is the process wherein iron or steel is placed in an air free enclosure with metallic zinc dust. Galvanizing carries with it numerous benefits to any architectural structure. Galvanized steel or iron does not require maintenance and has a long service life. The maintenance cost of galvanized steel or iron is low because the galvanized metal does not require additional painting or regular maintenance. The zinc coating protects the metal from rust, the elements of nature and other corrosive elements. Galvanized steel can be easily installed and no additional time is required for on-site preparation or painting. Galvanized steel and iron is used for both industrial and domestic applications.
Galvanizing is the process of coating a metal generally zinc over stainless steel material. This method helps to make a protective coating over the material thus preventing it from corrosion. Several methods of galvanizing techniques are used. Each method holds unique performance and characteristics. Zinc coatings are applied over the steel through electroplating, spraying, hot dip galvanizing, sheet galvanizing, sherardizing. Out of all the methods hot dip galvanizing is the most widely used galvanizing methods. This method makes a complete uniform zinc coating on the surface of the material and the thickness of the coating is based on the total mass of the product. This Hot dip galvanizing has this advantage of applying standard coating with the desired thickness. The steel products are immersed into the molten zinc that covers the corners, seals edges and penetrates forming a total protection to the areas that might get possibly corroded.
