Hot Dip Galvanizing Capabilities:
ASP’s experience with hot dip galvanizing dates back to the 1980s, and we are able to offer general hot-dip galvanizing services for any steel structure.
What is Hot Dip Galvanizing:
Hot Dip Galvanizing is the process of coating steel with a layer of zinc. Before the process can begin, the steel goes through a comprehensive chemical cleaning and also undergoes a special treatment of its surface. The steel is then dipped into a bath of molten zinc that has been heated to around 450 °C.
Why Choose Hot Dip Galvanizing?
1. Corrosion resistance: The process of hot dip galvanizing protects steel from corrosion by providing a thick, tough, metallurgically bonded zinc to steel layer, which completely covers the steel surface and seals it from the corrosive action of its environment.
2. Long life:
The life expectancy of hot dip galvanizing exceeds 50 years, depending on the environmental factors it is exposed to.
3. Lower maintenance costs:
The long life of the galvanizing procedure makes it the most economical way of protecting steel for long periods. Hot dip galvanized coatings are self-maintaining and are thicker, which contribute to the low maintenance and upkeep cost.
As the hot dip galvanizing process is carried out, clients can rest assured that coating thicknesses and life as well as performance are reliable and predictable.
A full protection coat can be applied in hours, while a more complex paint system requires a week.
A galvanized coat includes a unique metallurgical structure which offers exceptional resistance to mechanical damage during handling, storage, transport and construction.
7. Complete coverage:
As the steel is dipped in molten zinc, all parts of the steel surface are coated, which includes the inside, outside and any hard-to-reach corners or narrow gaps, which are impossible to protect in any other way.
8. Automatic protection for damaged areas: Galvanized coating offers total protection, thanks to the Cathodic protection, which is a technique used in galvanizing. This is especially true when it comes to small areas, should the steel be exposed through damage to the coating.
9. Quick installation:
Hot Dip Galvanizing only requires one step, and once the material has been galvanized, there is no need for any other preparations on site.
