With impressive corrosion resistance properties, zinc is commonly chosen as a protective coating on a number of components that have to withstand harsh weather conditions and not succumb to rust and corrosion.
The process of zinc thermal spraying involves melting zinc or zinc alloys and spraying them onto a prepared substrate, creating a layered coating. They are commonly used on decorative steelwork, offshore bolts, bridge fittings, bearings and vehicle subframes to name but a few.
Zinc spraying also allows for a thicker coating to be applied, which extends the component's lifespan as well being up to the task of dealing with tougher environments.
As well as giving extended corrosion protection on steel fabrications and castings (up to 50 years), thermally sprayed zinc is used extensively for electronic shielding from small handheld devices to military communications equipment.
There are a number of benefits to our thermal zinc metal coatings when compared to traditional dip galvanising.
- Ideal for large or irregularly shaped components that won't fit into a dipping tank.
- Flexibility - components can be zinc sprayed at the metal fabrication workshop or on site.
- Zero risk of heat warping.
- Thicker coatings means component is able to withstand harsher environments.,
- Process is faster and is less expensive than dip galvanisation.
