Steel and iron are two of the most durable construction metals on the market. While both of these materials are comprised of elements taken from the earth, the environment can wreak havoc on its integrity through the form of corrosion. The gasses in the air react with the properties of the metal, leaving a orange-brown colored substance in its place that we call rust. This isn’t the only form of corrosion, because any form of destruction to metal is defined as corrosion. The effects of corrosion are harmful to the environment but can be managed, slowed, and stopped with the right techniques. Using a hot dip galvanizing equipment process is just one of the ways industries are looking to get ahead of corrosion concerns.
Water Isn’t the Only Culprit
The primary catalyst to jump start rust development is water. Water molecules are able to seep into the microscopic gaps present … Read more
