These products can vary from casual consumer use all the way to institutional or commercial use. The flexibility of Zinc-Tech™ allows you as a producer to supply the most suitable product to meet your markets demands. From light-wall, low coating weight to heavy duty products you, have the ability to choose.
Fact: A Stronger Product
Due to the design of the Zinc-Tech™ process, finished products have both higher yield and tensile strength properties.
Benefit: Higher tensile and yield strength means a much stronger structure. This allows the ability to use a lighter wall material for cost savings and less welding and fabrication time for your customers.
Fact: Better Corrosion Performance
Zinc-Tech™ products have the highest percentage of “free zinc” coating weight.
Benefit: “Free zinc” refers to the percentage of total coating weight that is pure zinc. Typically products manufactured through galvanizing have multiple layers of zinc/iron alloy layers. Pure zinc, free of iron content will provide superior protection thereby increasing coating performance. Couple this with the ability to apply UV or thermal cure coatings inline, and you have a product that sets a new standard for corrosion performance.
Fact: A Fully Fused Galvanized Surface
Since Zinc-Tech™products are galvanized after the tube is formed and welded the exterior surface is fully galvanized unlike products manufactured from pre-galvanized strip.
Benefit: No premature failure or discoloration of the weld seam as is typical with pre-galvanized processes. Additionally, the interior surfaces are fully protected by zinc rich coatings which will not rust internally and stain the exterior surface.
Fact: Exceptional Zinc Adhesion and Ductility
Zinc-Tech™products posses exceptional zinc adhesion and ductility properties.
Benefit: Worry-free fabrication from flaking or peeling of the zinc coating, even under the most extreme of conditions.
Recreational and outdoor furnitures manufactured from galvanized steel pipes or tubes, requires the highest surface protection from weather and other environmental factors due to being exposed to outdoors. Manufacturing products that withstand such conditions by using hot dip process does not share the expected results, hence many manufacturers prefer In-line galvanizing process. Zinc-Tech™ which helps them to achieve unmatched product quality, better usage life and is high on savings.
