Hot-dip galvanizing of Hawaii steel products may have started out as a way to prevent corrosion in our humid environment, but that’s not all it’s good for. Today, the process is used to reduce the initial cost of a product, add strength, durability, and versatility to the piece, improve its’ aesthetics, and even up its’ sustainability factor.
What Is Hot-Dip Galvanizing?
Hot-dip galvanizing is a way to enhance the look and performance of steel. Steel is dipped into a vat containing molten zinc. The zinc reacts with the iron on the steel creating a tightly bonded coating that helps protect the steel from corrosion and even strengthens it.
Where Can Hot-Dip Galvanized Steel Be Used?
Hot-dip galvanized steel is used everywhere. You’ll find it in buildings and structures all over the state and the world. At Kloeckner Metals, we hot dip: structural steel, rebar, gates, fencing, trailers, tanks and more to improve the strength and durability of the steel.
If you’re investing in steel for use in buildings, structures, or even artwork and sculptures, the very best protection you can buy for that steel is to have it hot-dip galvanized. The end product will last longer, be stronger and safer, and require less maintenance than steel that hasn’t been galvanized. This reduces the total lifecycle cost of hot-dip galvanized steel as compared to non-galvanized steel, making it a smart and sustainable choice.
