Metal and Steel Galvanising from Yorkshire Profiles
Galvanisation prevents rust, which is very important for materials which are likely to see a lot of exposure to rain or adverse weather conditions. Zinc naturally resists the corrosion process, which makes it an ideal material for this sort of job.
The most frequently used method of galvanising is hot-dip galvanization, which sees your desired item dipped into a tub of molten zinc. The best thing about this process is that even if the zinc is scratched, it will still protect the metal underneath so that you will always have an all-encompassing level of protection that other methods simply cannot match.
What is Galvanising?
Galvanising is a French term and is where the process found its origins. It has undergone a wealth of changes since then, but the earliest record of usage as we know it today was discovered on Indian armoury from the 17th century.
As well as hot-dip galvanisation, electro-galvanisation is also available and is readily used on automobile bodies to ensure there is extra protection against rust. It’s a method that has proven itself time and time again, and is one we thoroughly recommend here at Yorkshire Profiles.
Other Methods of Galvanizing
There is also another method available to provide a galvanised coating that does not involve a bath. This is known in the trade as mechanical (or dry) galvanising and is a process that is performed at room temperature and is used mostly on items such as fasteners.
