19.1 Hot dip galvanizing protects steel from corrosion by providing a thick, tough metallic zinc
coating, which completely covers the steel surface and seals it from the corrosive action of its
environment. The galvanized coating provides outstanding abrasion resistance. Where there is
damage or minor discontinuity in the coating of zinc, protection of the steel is maintained by the
cathodic action of the surrounding galvanized coating. Metallic zinc is strongly resistant to the
corrosive action of normal environments and hot dip galvanized coatings therefore provide
long-term protection for steel.
