Hot Dip Galvanizing Coating

Hot Dip Galvanizing Coating

Have AQuestion

Hot dipped galvanizing is the process of hot dipping or fully immersing steel in a molten zinc bath. The zinc reacts with the iron in the steel to form a tightly bonded alloy in which the top layer is 100 percent zinc. This zinc coating delivers long-term, maintenance-free corrosion protection for hot dipped galvanized fasteners, including hot dipped galvanized bolts, screws, and nuts.

Hot dipped galvanizing a fastener prevents corrosion by offering barrier and galvanic protection to the base steel. The metallurgically bonded galvanized coating forms an impervious barrier between the steel substrate and the corrosive environment. This zinc coating preferentially corrodes to protect the steel and protects small areas of exposed steel from scratches or punctures. Hot dip galvanizing puts the thickest possible coating on the metal, resulting in superior corrosion resistance. Due to the thickness of the coating hot dipped galvanized bolts are not compatible with other nuts. Galvanized nuts are tapped slightly larger than other nuts to accommodate this coating.

Generally speaking, for better corrosion resistance than standard zinc plating, hot-dipped galvanized coatings provide a thicker layer of zinc on the surface, which makes it a better choice for outdoor use. Though it will corrode, it takes significantly longer than most other coatings.

Hot dipped galvanized fasteners offer the following benefits and advantages:

  • Superior long-term corrosion protection
  • Enhances the durability and strength of the substrate
  • Uniform and complete coverage, including corners, edges, and threads
  • Increased hardness for improved abrasion resistance
  • Excellent corrosion and chemical resistance
  • Enhanced thermal stability
  • Extends the life service of product
  • Cost-effective option because it is virtually maintenance free
  • No lost time in surface preparation, painting, and inspection

    March 7, 2016, 4:06pm Let me put it this way: January started my 37th year in this business, (I’ll be 55 in June, so I started when I got out of high school). Nobody ever calls when you go over and above and get them out of a bind. You can fill 99 out of 100 items, and they will call and bitch about that one item. Very seldom do they let you know how you got them out of a bind., or did the extra for them, or stayed late or delivered stuff on the weekends, etc. They have come to take it for granted, but I suppose we created the monster by the service level we maintain. And service is what we have that the big guys do not. John Wilson, there at U-Bolt It, did a fantastic job for us. I figure the sizes and quantities we were requesting were a little of a shocker, but John was all over it. And we appreciate all that he did. All of these SS U-Bolts were for our nuclear plant here in Mississippi. They went on re-fuel outage a couple of weeks ago, which they do every two years. And when they go on an outage, it is wide open for about a month. Cost doesn’t matter, freight doesn’t matter, get it here, and get it here fast. I’ve been through about 10 of these outages, and they never plan ahead very well. So compliments are in order for John and whoever else there did these for us. U-Bolt It did an exceptional job and we do appreciate it. Anything else comes up like this, you will be the first on the list. Let me add this though…..I’m not totally convinced that John went out in the plant and got his hands dirty….just saying
