Carbon steel is an alloy containing ~0.05 – 0.10 % carbon and other mixed metals. Because of the chemical activity, in wet atmosphere, it changes quickly into iron rust. Shortly after the piece made from unprotected carbon steel it will turn to rust. In order to stop this , we have multiple choices. One of this choices is galvanization also known as electrochemical zinc plating. During this operation a layer of zinc having 5 – 12 micrometers thickness.
During this operation the zinc layer acts as a sacrifice anode, which means that the iron is exposed to oxygen, the moisture in the air and other corrosive gases, only after the zinc layer is depleted.
After our specialists apply the electrochemical zinc plating, the neutral salt spray resistance to red rust can grow to ~ 500 h.
The galvanizing process takes place based on the experience gained for over 15 years of activity an it’s certified by ISO 9001:2008, SR EN ISO 14001:2004 and CHSAS 18001:2007.
Our technical department always develops the optimal technology for the beneficiaries according to their requests.
Currently, our company performs galvanizing services, being a supplier for DACIA RENAULT, IKEA, ELECTRO SISTEM, IMARO.
Boundary lines to steel parts for zinc plating:
Steel parts are recommended to be light cold-rolled sheets (or light cold-rolled profiles / structural shapes), with no traces of oxides (rust) if possible.
