Application Of Galvanized Steel

Galvanized steel is a type of steel that has been treated with an application of protective zinc coating to help prevent it from rusting. Galvanization is the process that is used to apply the zinc to the steel, through the use of electrochemical and electrodeposition processes. The most common means of galvanizing the steel available today through your local steel supply in Massachusetts, is through what is known as hot-dip galvanization.

The steel parts are submerged into a vat of hot, molten zinc to form a protective coating.There are many different uses for
galvanized steel in a number of industries. Some of the most common places that you will find galvanized steel is in residential
and commercial air ducts or as the material used to create durable, long-lasting trash cans.

Uses: Hot rolled products like hot rolled steel bars are used in the welding and construction trades to make railroad tracks and I-beams, for example. Hot rolled steel is used in situations where precise shapes and tolerances are not required.
