International Galvanizing, Inc.
Hot Dip Galvanizing
Although galvanization can be done with electrochemical and electro-deposition processes, the most common method currently used is hot-dip galvanization.
Hot-dip galvanizing is a form of galvanization. It is the process of coating iron or steel with a thin zinc layer, by passing the steel through a molten bath of zinc at a temperature of around 860 °F (460 °C). When exposed to the atmosphere, pure zinc reacts with oxygen to form zinc oxide, which further reacts with carbon dioxide to form zinc carbonate, a dull grey, fairly strong material that stops further corrosion in many circumstances, protecting the steel below from the elements.
International Galvanizing process is fully automated to control temperatures and coatings and assure proper quality.

International Galvanizing is also equipped with ceramic high temperature zinc ovens suitable for hot dip galvanizing of a whole variety of smaller fastening materials, such as bolts (from m8), nuts, clips, clamps, wire nails, threaded rods and anchors.
This procedure is of particular interest in various markets such as machine building, steel construction, wind turbine industry and in the automotive and energy sectors.
The modern spin process allows hot dip galvanizing of even smaller sizes of bolts and nuts without the fit being compromised. Products with a screw thread of between m10 and m100 can be hot-dip galvanized without a problem. The screw thread remains available over the complete length, even up to 3,000 mm in length.
International Galvanizing's kettle capacity can galvanize most any size, shape or form and customized steel fabrication.
