Galvanization

Galvanizing is the process of immersing steel in zinc at a temperature of 450 ° C. metallurgical bond of zinc alloys coated with a layer of pure zinc.

The first alloy gives great resistance to the base metal. The exterior of the zinc layer absorbs impact. While the inner layers provide corrosion protection.

In this sense, it is thanks to the hot-dip galvanizing that we can offer such great resistance to abrasion and give it such a long service life.
