Galvanised Plates

Galvanised Plates

Information

Galvanised plates, also known as galvanised sheets, are typically mild steel plates that has a protective zinc coating to prevent rusting and increase the surface hardness. Galvanised plates have better corrosion resistance than untreated steel plates and also are much more durable against the elements. Galvanised plate has excellent formability and machinability properties. Galvanised plate is ideal for covering large areas with good protective qualities and is used in general fabrication, automotive and structural applications.

Applications

Uses of galvanised plate include telecommunication, energy, agriculture, automotive, marine and offshore industries, construction and general fabrication.

Types

There are two predominant types of galvanised plate, hot-dip galvanising and electrogalvanising. Hot-dip galvanising takes a steel plate and dips it in molten pure zinc. Zinc plating or electrogalvanising applies a thin coating of zinc on the surface of steel plate using an electric current. Electrogalvanising produces a thinner less resilient surface and mostly recommended for interior use.

TypesDescription
Hot-Dip GalvanisingApplication of a zinc coating by dipping steel in a molten pool of zinc. Alloy layers such as zinc oxide and zinc carbonate, are formed on the primary metal through reaction with the surrounding atmosphere to form a protect coating.
ElectrogalvanisingAn electrolyte solution is passed through an electric current, which is later applied to the steel. The electric current reduces positively charged zinc ions to zinc metal, which is then deposited on the positively charged steel.
Pre-GalvanisingRolling sheet metal through a cleaning agent to quickly prime material for galvanising. The metal is passed through a pool of molten liquid zinc and is instantly recoiled.
Cold GalvanisingApplication of zinc-rich paint to the surface of steel metal to protect it from corrosion.

Other galvanised plate grades and sizes are available upon request. You can request to cut your galvanised plate down to size.
