“La galvanizing has been hot dipping steel since 1932 and we are still going strong.”

We will take care of all your galvanizing needs and we are happy to serve you.

Terms to Know

Degreasing

A hot alkaline or caustic solution removes dirt, oil, grease and soluble markings.

Pickling

A dilute solution of hot sulfuric acid removes surface rust and mill scale to provide a chemically clean metallic surface. This pickling process, heated to about 150 ° F, attacks the base steel, getting beneath the rust and scale to achieve the adequate cleaning passes thru into the zinc.

Fluxing

Our “wet” flux is a frothy blanket that floats on the surface of the zinc bath, and is a combination of zinc and ammonium chlorides that clean and protect the previously pickled steel. This flux forms a protective barrier on the steel as it passes thru into the zinc, in addition to removing any oxides that may have formed on the steel’s surface.

Galvanizing

This is where the steel actually gets its silver/grey coatings. The article is immersed into a bath of molten zinc heated to about 830 F. During the process, the steel comes up to the bath temperature and the zinc metallurgically bonds to the steel, creating a series of highly abrasion-resistant zinc-iron alloy layers.
