Hot-dip galvanization is the way of coating steel strip with zinc, which alloys with the surface of the base metal –strip- when immersing the metal in a molten zinc bath at a temperature of around 450 °C. The main characteristics of the material obtained are:
  • Exceptional duration.
  • Integral protection of the parts (inside and out).
  • Triple Protection:

o Physical barrier: The coating has a higher hardness and strength than any other type of coating.

o Electrochemical protection: Over time, a thin layer of zinc oxide is formed which acts as an insulator for galvanizing.

o Self-cured: On surface scrapes, there is a clogging by chemical reaction of the damaged surface.

  • No maintenance required.
  • Easy to paint.

Hot Dip Galvanized steel is widely used in applications where corrosion resistance is needed without the cost of stainless steel:

  • Automotive Industry.
  • Construction, in general.
  • Pipelines.
  • Ducts.
  • Boards.
  • Boxes.
  • Roofing sheets.
  • High voltage towers.
  • Structural parts.
  • Street furniture and home appliances

The first reference of Ingeteam goes 30 years ago when we revamped the nowadays ArcelorMittal’s CGL in Etxebarri. We have come a long way since then, with a number of references between revamps and green-fields bigger than 30, covering different continents and customers.
