Thermal dip galvanizing

After the construction work and welding the parts together, all material has been brought to NedCoat for this hot dip galvanizing process.

The process of hot-dip galvanizing results in a metallurgical bond between zinc and steel with a series of distinct iron-zinc alloys.


Thermal dip galvanizing is a process where the liquid zinc with a temperature of about 450 ° C (842 F) , both internal and external, in all corners of the structure or component is.

The steel and zinc form a zinc alloy. This protective layer is completed by a pure zinc layer. Galvanized products are highly durable, virtually maintenance free and provide maximum protection at minimal cost.


Construct of galvanizing materials issues:
The steel composition and the steel surface which significantly change the appearance of the zinc layer determine the welds, possible distortion of objects and composite structures by tension and the flow of liquid zinc in hollow profiles . In the book CONSTRUCT you will find these and more information is required for proper preparation of the thermal galvanizing. (dutch language)


All parts together including standoffs and bearing plates (not bearing itself) is approx. 772 pound avdp
