Galvanizing: What Is This?

Curious to learn more about Galvanizing? At B.B. Price, we include galvanizing as one of our daily processes within our forge to enhance the durability of our manufactured products.

Galvanizing is a transformative process involving coating steel or iron with a layer of zinc. This layer is a protective coating that acts as a guard against corrosion, rust and harsh outdoor environments, helping produce a more durable product for your needs.

At B.B. Price, galvanizing is part of our process of forging, backing up our commitment to ensuring every product that we manufacture is long-lasting and resilient.

What is Galvanizing Products

The Galvanizing Process

The process of galvanizing doesn’t necessarily entail many steps, but it does require skill and an eye for detail.

  1. Preparing the surface: Before galvanizing takes place, the steel or iron must be prepared. This ensures that the zinc coating with adhere seamlessly providing optimal protection.
  2. Hot-Dip Galvanizing: Once prepared, the steel or iron is immersed in a bath of molten zinc. The method of hot dipping results in a metallurgically bonded zinc coating that becomes integral to the steel or iron. From this point, your metal will provide unmatched durability.
  3. Quenching: Following the hot dip, the metal is quenched to solidify the zinc coating.
  4. Inspection: Once the metal has been quenched, meticulous checks are undertaken to inspect the whole product and guarantee that it meets the stringent quality standards set at B.B. Price.
