    galvanization is a method of applying a protective zinc coating to steel or iron for industrial use, in order to prevent rusting. zinc, a metallic element can withstand much more than steel or iron, and thus lasts much longer as it

  • what are the reasons there could be defects in galvanizing?

    inclusions/dross pimples: during galvanizing process, dross is generated as zinc iron crystals or in the form in higher melting point when compared to metal in zinc bath. galvanized coating experiences trapped dross which gives out that gritty or rough appearance to the coating.

  • welding galvanized steel

    uncoated steel to galvanized steel the zinc coating is unusually thick. the difference between welding galvanized steel and welding uncoated steel is a result of the low vaporization temperature of the zinc coating. zinc melts at about 900˚f and vaporizes at about 1650˚f. since steel melts at approximately 2,750˚f and

  • what you should know about galvanized steel water

    galvanized steel pipes are constructed from raw steel coated with a corrosion resistant material. the coating process, known as galvanizing, involves the use of dipping steel into molten zinc. pure zinc is an ideal material for galvanizing due to its abundance, low cost, and low toxicity to humans.
