HOT-DIP GALVANIZING

Why Hot-dip Galvanizing

Hot-dip galvanizing is the process of dipping fabricated steel into a kettle or vat of molten zinc. The iron metallurgically reacts with the zinc to form a tightly-bonded alloy coating that protects the metal from decay and other damage.

All metals revert to their ore state upon exposure to the elements. This inevitable process, called corrosion, is often seen as iron ore or rust. While corrosion cannot be eliminated, it can be reduced for building materials such as steel. Hot-dip galvanizing is the ultimate solution to tackling the corrosion problem.

Sustainable production practices

AGV’s galvanized steel is coated with a long-lasting zinc patina. Zinc, a naturally occurring element common to all living organisms, is chosen for its 100% recyclability.

Low-cost steel solutions

Repairing corroded metals is a billion-dollar endeavour, accounting for up to 3.5% of annual GDP in countries such as Singapore. At AGV, we take pride in providing economical yet lasting galvanizing solutions.

Unparalleled durability

Our zinc-treated steel lasts for decades and maintains its structural integrity in harsh, ever-changing urban conditions – all with minimal maintenance.
