BENEFITS OF HOT DIP GALVANIZING

LOWEST FIRST COST:-

In many cases galvanizing costs less to apply compared to other coating with shorter life.

LOWEST LONG TERM COST :-

Even in case where the initial cost of galvanizing is higher than a comparable alternative coasting system , Galvanizing is in invariably cheaper in the long run.

LONG LIFE :-

The Standard 610 gm /Sqm galvanized coating has a typical life without maintenance of more than 50 years in rural environments & upto 40 years in urban & coastal conditions.

RELIABILITY :-

The galvanizing coating is bonded metallurgically to the base steel so that it becomes part of steel surface it protects. Coating life & performance are therefore reliable & predictable.

COATING TOUGHNESS :-

A galvanizing coating has unique metallurgical structure which gives out standing resistance to mechanical damages in transport, erection & service.

ELIMINATION OF MAINTENANCE FOR LONG PERIODS :-

The use of galvanizing deters maintenance for very long periods compared to other coating on steel.

AUTOMATIC PROTECTION :-

Galvanized coating corrode preferentially to steel, providing sacrificial or cathodic protection to steel unlike any other organic coating.

COMPLETE PROTECTION :-

Every part of galvanizing article is fully protected , even recess sharp corners & inaccessible areas, no other coating applied to a structure can provide the same protection.

EASE OF INSPECTION :-

Galvanizing coating thickness is controlled automatically by steel thickness & a standard minimum coating mass result. Soundness & continuity of coating can be judged by bare eyes.

MECHANICAL PROPERTIES :-

Galvanizing has no effect on the mechanical & chemical properties of commonly galvanized structural steel.

TIME SAVING :–

Galvanizing is a faster process than painting or epoxy saving substantial time in setting erection or assembly. Further there is no specific handling requirement of galvanized steel hence saving cost and time.
