What is hot dip galvanization(HDP)?

What is Galvanizing?

Hot-dip galvanizing (HDG), is the process of dipping fabricated steel into a kettle or vat containing molten zinc. The process is inherently simple which provides a distinct advantage over other corrosion protection methods. While the steel is in the kettle, the iron in the steel metallurgically reacts with the molten zinc to form a tightly-bonded alloy coating that provides superior corrosion protection to steel.

HDG Process
Galvanizing-Process

The hot-dip galvanizing (HDG) process consists of three basic steps:

  • Surface Preparation

Surface preparation is a critical step in the application of any coating.  In most instances where a coating fails before the end of its expected service life, it is because of incorrect or inadequate surface preparation.  The galvanizing process has its own built-in means of quality control because zinc will not react with an unclean steel surface. Any failures or inadequacies in surface preparation will be immediately apparent when the steel is withdrawn from the zinc bath because the unclean areas will remain uncoated, and immediate corrective action can be taken.

  • Galvanizing

During the true galvanizing step of the process, the material is completely immersed in a bath of molten zinc.  The bath chemistry is specified by ASTM B6, and requires at least 98% pure zinc maintained at  815-850 F (435-455 C).

While immersed in the kettle, the zinc reacts with the iron in the steel to form a series of metallurgically bonded zinc-iron intermetallic alloy layers, commonly topped by a layer of impact-resistant pure zinc.

Once the fabricated items coating growth is complete, it is withdrawn slowly from the galvanizing bath, and the excess zinc is removed by draining, vibrating, and/or centrifuging.

The metallurgical reaction will continue after the materials are withdrawn from the bath, as long as it remains near bath temperature. Galvanized articles are cooled either by immersion in a passivation solution or water or by being left in open air.

  • Inspection

The inspection is simple and quick. The two properties of the HDP coating most closely scrutinized are coating thickness and appearance/surface condition. A variety of simple physical tests can be performed to determine thickness, uniformity, adherence, and appearance.
