Hot-dip galvanizing refers to a finishing technology that helps iron and steel to be permanently protected from harmful external influences. During the galvanizing process, the iron is given a layer of liquid zinc. This is usually done by immersing the workpiece in a bath of molten zinc. Creating a zinc coating using this process provides effective protection against the rusting of the iron caused by corrosion. The duration and the degree of protection depends on the thickness of the applied zinc layer. If the layer is very thin, it can quickly lead to deformation through mechanical interference, which limits the corrosion protection in the long-term.
