16 Apr Galvanisation
Posted at 15:56h
Galvanised steel or galvanisation is a process in which steel is bathed or coated in zinc to prevent rusting. The most common method is known as hot dip galvanising where steel parts are dipped in a bath of molten zinc.
Zinc then acts as a sacrificial anode – a protective barrier that prevents corrosive chemicals to penetrate into the steel component by sacrificing itself first, as zinc will corrode first before anything reaches the steel part.« Back to Glossary Index
