Rust Proofing Services

Rust is like an orange powder that develops on the surface of metals due to oxidation. It is a chemical reaction commonly seen on iron and steel that has been exposed to air or water. When rust forms on industrial equipment, it can negatively impact the performance of the affected parts. If proper rust proofing is not in place, the moving pieces of a machine may experience unnatural and debilitating friction. Rust can also affect certain electronics made with iron alloys. The technique of hot dip galvanizing can act as a rust-proof coating to inhibit corrosion on these metals.

Our corrosion protection services act as a rust proofing system for the metal aspects of your structures. Our rust proofing services include the addition of a zinc coating that will act as a protective layer from environmental factors such as water and oxygen.

Corrosion has numerous negative effects on metal which will wreak havoc on a metal roof.

  • Loss of strength in both the flexural and bond areas.
  • Reduce the cross section of the metal, which further weakens the structure.
  • If the rust corrosion on the metal roof is left untreated, the entire structure will disintegrate.
  • Roof leaks happen more to corroded roofs.

Our Buffalo, NY corrosion protection company can help prevent these issues from affecting your projects.

Explore our Innovative Rust Proofing Process

Our crew is equipped to reinforce your metal surfaces with a zinc coating, which is entirely self-healing. Essentially, if your metal surface is compromised, the newly-implemented zinc layer is first to start the oxidization process. This process creates a residue that fills all metal gaps and protects the underlying structure. You won’t have to worry about scratches or chips ever again!

Our rust proofing services include a zinc coating that electrically bonds itself to metal surfaces. This rust proofing service provides protection through hot dip galvanizing methods. Our specific coating offers corrosion protection and resists rust migration. Don’t go another day with a metal roof without our rust proofing services.

Our rust proofing service will protect your metal implements for years and years come. Best of all, this innovative process is offered at a highly competitive rate, so what are you waiting for? We invite you to contact our certified technicians serving Buffalo, NY and beyond today. As always, you’re more than welcome to explore the hot dip galvanization process.
