Galvanising – Good industrial corrosion protection but:
  • Does not provide a smooth surface and lumps of zinc accumulate on lower edges with spikes and drips
  • Fettled areas can expose steel surfaces which can rust
  • Heat of galvanising process causes distortion especially in large flat areas
  • Tubular items must have unsightly vent holes
  • Varying material composition and thicknesses can give differing surface finishes from dull grey to shiny silver, no other colour available
  • Over time all galvanised products turn dull grey with a surface of Zinc Oxide. Items stacked in damp conditions will exhibit white rust
  • Corners and pockets can trap dross from the galvanising process
