Hot-dip galvanizing for protection against corrosion
Zinc provides high-quality corrosion protection.
Hot-dip galvanizing is a modern and technically advanced process used for protecting steel against corrosion.
This technique is based on the corrosion prevention properties of zinc and can be used to protect steel work that you manufacture or process.
Unlike paint, a zinc layer applied to steel by hot-dip galvanizing does not peel off the surface. The zinc layer is alloyed with steel and protects the inner and outer steel surface permanently and cost-effectively.
Service provider for local companies
The Söll hot-dip galvanizing plant also provides local companies, like steel fabricators, with the option of galvanizing their finished parts. The charge for this service is dependent on the weight and type of each part.
The zinc bath has a length of 7 metres, width of 1.20 metres and depth of 2.40 metres and is suitable for all parts up to a maximum length of 6.90 metres, width of 1.10 metres and depth of 2 metres. In case of larger parts, it is recommended that their dimensions be agreed upon with the hot-dip galvanizing plant in advance.
Parts must be designed to withstand galvanizing, i.e. should not contain any internal cavities containing air that may expand at the high temperature within the bath and consequently burst. All work pieces must be free from colour, grease and welding cinder, must not be coated with welding sprays and should have been welded without any pores. Our on-site experts will naturally check all delivered pieces.
We would be glad to provide you further information about hot-dip galvanizing or zinc in the environment.
Our hot-dip galvanizing processes comply with EN 1461 "hot-dip galvanized coatings on fabricated iron and steel articles", and provide the highest long term corrosion protection. The Sperian Fall Protection Deutschland GmbH & Co. KG (former Christian Dalloz Holding) is a member of the Association of German Hot-dip Galvanizing Companies and always keeps itself informed about new developments.
