Why Choose Galvanised Metal?

Sep. 27, 2021

Finding the right galvanized material for a particular project means longer lasting and often better results. Using the best galvanising metal for the specific conditions faced within a facility or in a particular environment can help solve problems such as rust and corrosion, improving structural integrity and appearance. Taking the time to research your options and choosing the most effective galvanized metal for your specific needs can pay dividends for years or even decades to come.


Lets's take a closer look at the galvanization process and how it can be used to enhance the key properties of steel. With this information in mind, you can make an informed choice in selecting the best galvanised steel mesh and finding other applications where galvanized steel is suitable.

What is galvanising?

Galvanising or zinc plating is a manufacturing process in which a coating of zinc is applied to steel or iron to provide protection and prevent rusting. There are several available galvanising processes, but the most common and used method is known as hot dip galvanising.

 

There are several processes used to galvanise metal.

 

Hot dip galvanisation involves submerging a piece of metal into a bath of hot zinc. This is common for larger pieces of metal and many applications in general.

Electrogalvanising is a form of electroplating and is common in the automotive sector.

Thermal diffusion galvanisation uses a drum and heat to combine smaller or more complex pieces of iron or steel with zinc.

 

The result of all these processes is a zinc coating that forms a barrier between the steel and the moisture content of the surrounding atmosphere. 

The galvanised steel mesh is finally sprayed using world-class AkzoNobel powder. The powder protects the mesh from moisture and water.

Benefits of galvanized steel

Galvanised steel is one of the most popular grades of steel because it offers longer durability, the strength, and formability of steel, and the corrosion protection of a zinc-iron coating. The zinc protects the base metal by acting as a barrier to corrosive elements, while the sacrificial nature of the coating produces durable, high quality galvanizing products.

 

Full protection - With hot dip galvanising, every millimeter of steel it touches is galvanised, meaning the hot dip galvanising process can reach areas that other similar processes cannot, to prevent rust and corrosion. Galvanised steel mesh protects against rats and flies and is fire resistant

 

Less maintenance - The galvanised coating of cold-rolled steel, using the hot dip galvanising process ensures that it will never shrink or crack as it is metallurgically bonded to the steel it is protecting. It also offers excellent abrasion resistance and water resistance.

Lowest initial cost - the initial cost of hot dip galvanising is lower than many other commonly used protective coatings for steel.

 

Lowest long-term cost - even where the initial cost of hot-dip galvanising is higher than alternative coatings, hot-dip galvanising is almost always more cost-effective in the long run because it lasts longer and requires less maintenance.

 

What is galvanized steel used for?

Galvanized steel mesh is used extensively in homes and holiday resorts to keep out mosquitoes and flies or various other flying insects. Galvanized steel screens have a tensile strength of 350-380 Mpa.

The surface of galvanized steel mesh treated with hot-dip galvanising is bright and smooth, thus providing excellent quality and high resistance to damage and mechanical damage. Galvanised steel screens are widely used in agriculture and industry.
