Hot dip galvanizing involves the coating of steel with a layer of zinc, by immersing the metal in a bath of molten zinc at temperatures of around 450 ̊ C. When exposed to the atmosphere, the pure zinc reacts with the oxygen to form zinc oxide, a dull grey, strong material that stops further corrosion in many circumstances, protecting the steel below from the elements. Widely used in applications requiring corrosion resistance, the material provides a cost effective alternative to stainless steel.
