Metalizing is an alternative coating process for structural steel and piping. Its benefit is that it protects the steel for a vastly longer time than paint alone. It’s a proven process that’s been used for nearly a century – most commonly in large steel structures such as bridge girders and heavy structural steel fabrications.
In the metalizing process, a steel surface must be prepared by blasting to a specific profile for the atomized zinc or aluminum to adhear. The applied finish produces a very uniform coating, and a clear or painted top-coat can be applied afterwards, if required.
We strictly adhere to the following standard during all stages of the metalizing process:
Joint Standard SSPC-CS 23.00/AWS C2.23M/NACE No. 12 Specification for the Application of Thermal Spray Coatings (Metallizing) of Aluminum, Zinc, and Their Alloys and Composites for the Corrosion Protection of Steel.
