Why Go Galvanized?
Corrosion Resistant keeps you Investment and your products safe.
The life expectancy of galvanized coatings on typical structural members is far in excess of 50 years in most rural environments
Galvanized coating has unique metallurgical structure which gives outstanding resistance to mechanical damage in transport, installation and service.
Galvanizing is lower in cost than many other commonly specified protective coatings for steel.
The primary advantages for using Galvanized are:
- Lower cost than stainless.
- Less maintenance/Lowest long term cost.
- Long life expectancy.
- Coating life and performance are reliable.
- Outstanding resistance to mechanical damage.
Benefits of Galvanized
Galvanized Pallet Rack Systems are designed to Work in Harsh Environments highly resistant to Rust for pallet rack Installed Outdoors or Inside Cooler and Freezer applications.
Every part of a galvanized article is protected, even recesses, sharp corners and inaccessible areas. No coating applied to a structure or fabrication after completion can provide the same protection.
What is Galvanized?
Hot dip process after fabrication to combat steel corrosion, increase durability, longevity and sustainability.
How does it work?
During the true galvanizing step of the process, the material is completely immersed in a bath of molten zinc.
While immersed in the kettle, the zinc reacts with the iron in the steel to forma series of metallurgically bonded zinc-iron intermetallic alloy layers, commonly topped by a layer of impact-resistant pure zinc.
Galvanized articles are cooled either by immersion in a passivation solution or water or by being left in open air.
