Hot-dip galvanizing


Published on

Presentation of the hot-dip galvanising process and of the different parameters that are important when choosing one product over another.

There are two suggestions for different types of treatment lines: a fully acid line with enhanced protection for rough environments needing passivation and another line with alkaline degreasing for extremely greasy parts.

  2. 2. Protect steel & iron against corrosion Hot-dip galvanizing • A Zn layer is chemically attached to the steel surface. • Zn corrodes slower than iron and, thus, protects iron from corroding. • Very strong protection against corrosion. Electroplating • Different metals (Ni, Cr…) are attached to the base metal surface. • Used for high-gloss applications.

  4. 4. Hot-dip galvanising stages Degreasing Etching Flux Galvanising • Acid (cold, pre-etching) • Alkaly (warmed, needs rinsing off) Rinsing • Mechanic • Water-based dilution: acid or alkaly • ZnCl2 and NH4Cl double and triple salts • ZnCl2 Rinsing • Protection against corrosion Drying Passivation • Protection against white corrosion
