Hot-dip galvanizing is a procedure which performs anticorrosion protection of steel parts and assemblies.
Hot dip galvanizing is a process in which a material is immersed in a melt of zinc after proper chemical preparation.
It has been applied for almost 150 years and it is one of the most widely used.
The reason is such a widespread application in the simplicity and economy of the process itself, and good anti-corrosion properties without maintenance costs throughout almost the entire life of the product.
The process of hot dip galvanizing implies certain technical requirements.
This technical recommendation in principle describes the details to pay attention to and its basic function is to facilitate communication between the galvanizing service provider, the manufacturer and the designer.
In practice, various examples may arise that will not be adequately described in this brochure, so it will be necessary to request the recommendation of a galvanizing service provider.
Possible modifications to parts or assemblies can cause unwanted visual changes, disrupt product functionality, and sometimes reduce the static load-bearing capacity of the structure.
