Galvanized sheet or coil is defined as a carbon steel sheet coated
with zinc on both sides. Continuous hot dipping, or
electro-galvanizing are the two processes used to produce
galvanized sheet and coil. Generally speaking, the hot dip process
consists of passing the steel through a bath of molten zinc. The
electro-galvanizing process consists of the application of zinc by
electrolytic disposition. The result is a layer of zinc tightly
adhering to the base metal through an iron-zinc bonding layer.
A zinc coating is one of the most effective and economical methods
of protecting bare steel from a corroding environment. The zinc not
only serves as a barrier between the steel and the environment, it
will sacrifice itself to protect the underlying steel sheet.
Sacrificial, or galvanic protection occurs when two dissimilar
metals are in contact and coupled with water and oxygen. Zinc
corrodes preferentially to the iron in steel. This protection
prevents corrosion of the steel at areas not covered with zinc.
Thus, the spread of corrosion from cut edges, drill holes, etc. is
