The unique nature of the galvanizing process provides a tough and abrasion resistant coating which means less site damage and speedy erection of structures.
Unlike most coatings, which rely solely on preparation of the steel to obtain adhesion, hot dip galvanizing produces a coating bonded metallurgically to the steel. In other words, the iron and zinc react together to form a series of alloys which make the coating an integral part of the steel surface with excellent cohesion.
Resistance to mechanical damage of protective coatings during handling, storage, transport and erection is very important if the cost of 'touching up' on site is to be avoided.
The outer layer of pure zinc is relatively soft and absorbs much of the shock of an initial impact during handling. The alloy layers beneath are much harder, sometimes even harder than the base steel itself. This combination provides a tough and abrasion resistant coating.
All of our galvanised products are put through rigerous testing regimes before being sent out to ensure a high quality service is undertaken each and every time. Our in house quality standards outweigh that of other industry standards, as well as our adherence to stringent safety means.
SEPA - Scotland Environment Protection Agency monitor all of our emissions and any corrosive ingredients to ensure the environment is not impacted by our plant. All of our staff have been put through strict health and safety, fire awareness & risk assessment programs to ensure the highest quality of service available.
Forfar Galvanisers are committed to being an equal opportunities employer.
