Our Hot Dip Galvanizing Process

Fabricated steel structures are commonly used in various industries, including construction, infrastructure, manufacturing, and more. However, steel is susceptible to corrosion when exposed to harsh chemicals and environmental factors, such as rain and snow. Rust formation not only compromises the appearance of the steel but also weakens its structural integrity, leading to potential safety hazards and costly repairs or replacements. To stop rust before it can even begin, our hot dip galvanizing process can improve the corrosion protection and enhance the rust proofing of your steel.

Our team follows a comprehensive rust proofing process to ensure the highest level of protection for your fabricated steel:

Surface Preparation: We thoroughly clean the surface of the fabricated steel, removing any dirt, grease, or existing rust. These steps include degreasing, pickling, and fluxing to ensure proper adhesion of the molten zinc coating to the steel.

Rust Proofing Coating: We apply a specialized rust proofing coating that forms a protective barrier on the surface of the fabricated steel. This coating is designed to resist moisture, chemicals, and environmental factors, effectively preventing rust formation.

Quality Inspection: Our team conducts a thorough inspection to ensure that the rust proofing process has been completed to the highest standards.

The Importance Hot Dip Galvanizing Can Have on Your Fabricated Steel

Extend the Lifespan: Rust proofing creates a protective barrier on the surface of the steel, preventing moisture and corrosive substances from reaching the metal. This significantly slows down the corrosion process, allowing your fabricated steel structures to last longer and perform optimally.

Maintain Structural Integrity: Corrosion weakens the structural integrity of steel, which can be detrimental to the safety and stability of your structures. Rust proofing helps preserve the strength and durability of fabricated steel, ensuring that it can withstand the demands of its intended use.

Reduce Maintenance and Repair Costs: Regular maintenance and repair of corroded steel structures can be time-consuming and expensive. By proactively rust proofing your fabricated steel, you can minimize the need for costly repairs and maintenance, saving both time and money in the long run.
