Frequently Asked Questions About Galvanized Steel
How is it made?
Galvanization is the process of applying a layer of zinc to steel or iron. Steel itself is prone to oxidization. So to protect it from rust, it’s submerged in a bath of molten zinc, which is called hot-dip galvanizing.
How strong is the rust protection?
It depends on the type or the thickness of the zinc coating. It will hold up to the usual sources of oxidation, but strong sulfuric compounds (hydrogen sulfide, sulfur dioxide, etc.) may corrode the steel.
Can you paint over galvanized steel?
In most cases, even with reasonable paint preparation, paint doesn’t last long on galvanized steel. The smooth finish, zinc treatment and without anchor patterns, it’s hard for paint to dry properly. It will eventually chip away.
What are the uses of galvanized steel?
Galvanized pipes in the Philippines are heavily used in construction projects. It provides strong structural qualities, making it suitable for railings, support beams, roofing, and other parts of a building process.
It’s also popular in HVAC applications as the main component for ductworks. You may also see it in highway signs, playgrounds, and industrial applications.
Can you bury galvanized steel?
How galvanized steel will fare underground depends on a variety of factors. The different kinds of soil means varying pH levels, moisture content, and various conditions. In addition, there are highly corrosive soils, and without seeing the pipes, it’s hard to determine the damage certain elements will do to the pipes.
