Hot dipped galvanised steel

Galvanised Steel is produced by a process known as continuous hot dip galvanising. It is produced by feeding sheet steel through a molten zinc bath. Zinc coatings improve the corrosion resistance of the steel surface due to the protective barrier of the coating and its sacrificial properties.

What are the benefits of hot dipped galvanised steel?

Galvanised steel sheet is low maintenance and long lasting, whilst typically used where corrosion resistance is required without paint due to its aesthetic smooth finish. It also provides an excellent surface for painted applications that require a specific colour or finish.
