Can I bring in my material and wait for it to be galvanized?

Yes, if you call and let us know at least 1 day in advance, we can usually handle this request

Will threaded rods take a nut after galvanizing?

Yes. With our patented Galvathread process, threaded rods are guaranteed to nut.

How much weight does galvanizing add to my product?

Galvanizing generally adds about 6% � 7% to the weight of a product.


The Benefits When it comes to choosing a corrosion protection system what makes galvanizing unique? It’s an honest coating Due to the unique alloy growth that occurs when clean steel is immersed into molten zinc – the coating effectively becomes part of the steel – if it looks good on day one it will remain so for many many years to come. It’s proven With a history that stretches back over 200 years, there are innumerable examples in many environments proving its performance. In Dorset, a bridge at Lydlinch was constructed in 1944 to assist the flow of supplies during the D-Day landings. The Callender-Hamilton design was originally intended only to be a temporary bridge but is still in use 70 years after construction. An inspection of the bridge was conducted by Galvanizers Association in 1999 after 55 years service. This indicated that the galvanized coating was in excellent condition with no signs of rust on any steel members. It is anticipated that the coating will achieve a maintenance-free life of more than 100 years. It’s sustainable The long-term durability provided by galvanizing is achieved at relatively low environmental burden in terms of energy and other globally relevant impacts. Several studies have demonstrated the high economic and environmental costs associated with the repeated maintenance painting of steel structures. These burdens can be significantly reduced by an initial investment in long-term protection. Lack of attention to optimal corrosion protection can leave a damaging economic legacy of repeated maintenance costs. In social housing projects, future maintenance costs will be borne by the local authorities. In public infrastructure projects, use of galvanized steel leads to lower maintenance budgets, releasing public funds for other purposes.

What is Hot Dip Galvanizing?
Hot dip galvanizing is the process of coating iron or steel with a layer of zinc by immersing the metal in a bath of molten zinc at a temperature of around 860 °F (460 °C). During the process, a metallurgically bonded coating is formed which protects the steel from harsh environments, whether they be external or internal. Galvanized steel is widely used in applications where corrosion resistance is needed without the cost of stainless steel and can be identified by the crystallised pattern on the surface (often called a ‘spangle’). Galvanizing is probably the most environmentally
Unique Characteristics of Hot Dip Galvanizing
The unique nature of the galvanizing process provides a tough and abrasion resistant coating which means less site damage and speedy erection of structures. Cohesion Unlike most coatings, which rely solely on preparation of the steel to obtain adhesion, hot dip galvanizing produces a coating bonded metallurgically to the steel. In other words, the iron and zinc react together to form a series of alloys which make the coating an integral part of the steel surface with excellent cohesion. Toughness Resistance to mechanical damage of protective coatings during handling, storage, transport and erection is very important if the cost of ‘touching up’ on site is to be avoided. The outer layer of pure zinc is relatively soft and absorbs much of the shock of an initial impact during handling. The alloy layers beneath are much harder, sometimes even harder than the base steel itself. This combination provides a tough and abrasion resistant coating.
