Galvanizing Plants

Galvanizing is a process in which a zinc film is deposited on goods made of steel to provide long term (generally 10 to 30 years) corrosion protection and abrasion resistance.

A new precision zinc galvanizing process has been developed providing superior wear and corrosion protection on steel and iron parts. The process eliminates environmental problems with traditional hot dip galvanizing and zinc electroplating processes.

Worldwide, the largest markets for galvanized steel are mostly the “Construction
industries” and the “Automobile industries”. The recycle life of galvanized steel can
be up to 100 years and the added cost is justified by decreased maintenance cost over
non-galvanized steel.

European general galvanizing plants, which protect about 5Mt steel products each year, do not generate process scrap.
