Electro galvanized steel is created by electroplating a pure zinc coating on either one or two sides of a carbon steel sheet or strip. Prior to being immersed in a bath of molten zinc, the steel must pass through a surface-preparation process, including caustic cleaning, pickling, and fluxing. After the carbon steel surface is properly prepared, the steel is passed through a molten zinc-plating bath. The continuous electrolytic coating process covers the steel surface with a highly uniform coating. As a result, electro galvanized steel has a thin, smooth, zinc coating that is exceptionally uniform with a matte appearance.
Compared to hot dipped galvanized material, electro galvanized steel offers similar performance with a lower coating thickness and a brighter, more aesthetically appealing, matte finish. It also offers superior surface quality, excellent corrosion resistance, outstanding paintability, and enhanced joining and forming capabilities.
The combination of utility and appeal make electro galvanized steel a popular material choice in a wide variety of applications and industries, including agricultural equipment, appliance parts, architectural equipment, automotive parts, electrical components corner bead for dry wall, fencing, ceiling grids, and door applications as well as hardware and smaller components.
