dip galvanizing is a very effective method to protect steel against corrosion.
The initial costs for galvanizing of steel is low, and since the life
time without any maintenance is very long, the life time cost for galvanized
steels is very advantageously in comparison with other corrosion protection
steel has a grey appearance, which harmonize well with the nature.
If some other colour is preferred, it is possible to paint the galvanized
surface, which except the colour also further improves the already very
good corrosion protection of the galvanized steel.
is an essential metal which in small amounts is very important for most
organisms. A human being needs approximately 15 mg per day, which means
that the population around the world consumes about 30 000 tonnes
for corrosion protection zinc is also used in medicine, alloys, rubber,
zinc ingots, additions to animal feedings, as corrosion protection in
is also included in sun protection oils and healing ointment.
