Galvanising by Steel City Fabrications Ltd

Hot-dip Galvanising

Galvanising is the process of applying zinc to mild steel to provide it with a strong and protective coating that lasts for up to 100 years. This finish is applied by immersing the product in molten zinc at a temperature of 450ÂșC until they reach the same high temperature as the zinc. The products are then gradually withdrawn to allow excess zinc to drain off. The coated products are then quenched or air cooled depending on client requirements.

The end finish is resilient to aggressive handling, which, over the last 150 years, has been solidly proven to provide a long-lasting, tough and low-maintenance coating. Importantly, galvanised coatings are also recyclable, giving the steel an almost continuous life span.

The quality processes, highly trained technical operatives and advanced production facilities that our supplier uses ensure our clients benefit from the highest quality and most reliable galvanised finishes, which complies with the latest galvanising standard BSENISO 1461 insuring you get a good quality finish every time.
