Hot Dip Galvanizing

Hot Dip Galvanizing

Hot-dip Galvanising is the process of immersing a steel or iron piece of metal in the molten zinc bath and heating it at 449° C which results in the deposition of a thin layer of Zinc on top of the base iron or steel metals forming an iron-zinc and steel-zinc alloy. Hot-dip galvanization uses chemicals like Zinc ammonium chloride as flux which is applied onto steel objects to avoid the corrosion of clean steel by the atmospheric air. This process exclusively uses Zinc as it has a high corrosion resistance tendency which makes it last longer, protecting the metal surface.

Hot Dip Galvanizing

Hot-dip galvanizing is the process of immersing iron or steel in a bath of molten zinc to produce a corrosion resistant coating of zinc-iron alloy. While the steel is immersed in the zinc, a metallurgical reaction occurs between the iron in the steel and the molten zinc. This reaction is a diffusion process, so the coating forms perpendicular to all surfaces creating a uniform thickness throughout the part. The three main steps in the hot-dip galvanizing process are surface preparation, galvanizing, and post-treatment,

Acid inhibitor minimizes the undue acid attack on the steel surface during pickling. Inhibitor ensures undesired metal dissolution in acid hence less acid point drop. Use of inhibitors gives smooth and uniform pickled surface. The product is formulated with blend of polymers surfactants. It has wide temperature ranges from room to 70°C.

1. Inhibitor.
2. Inhibitor plus.

Galvanizing fluxes

The pre flux protects the work from further oxidation, thus resulting in prepared surface for galvanizing.

Galvanizing fluxes are formulated for accelerated speed, minimal fuming, less ash for uniform zinc coats. It is in solid and solution form which is used in the coating of tube, pipe, wire, small parts such as bolts and nuts, fencing in many parts. Flux is formation of high quality, adherent galvanized coating. It is a combination of organic and inorganic based surfactant, additives with wetting agents and salts of zinc ammonium chloride.

Zinc and Metals

Zinc is the most corrosion resistive metal on earth which is its prominent use in metallurgy. Using zinc to make zinc alloys is it's second most prominent use. Copper alloys of zinc and other metal alloys with zinc are used in automobile industries, electric industry, and many others.

blasting

Abrasive blasting

Abrasive blasting is more commonly known as sandblasting. It is prominently used to clean surface impurities on metals by jet streaming abrasive material under intense high pressure to smoothen the surface of the metal.
