The electroplating plant was launched in mid-2020 and deals with the application of decorative and corrosion protection zinc coatings to steel structures using the electrolytic method. Our plant is one of the most modern facilities of this kind in Poland. It consists of two lines – a lifting sling line for larger elements and a drum line for small elements. The lifting sling line allows for structures up to 2.8 meters in length, 0.8 meters in width and 1.8 meters in height to be galvanised. Both lifting sling and drum lines are fully automated. Autonomous conveyors transfer the elements between successive process tanks and the solution parameters are continuously monitored by a computer system. The proper composition of process solutions is supervised by our chemists, who have a professional analytical laboratory at their disposal. The equipment and technologies used in the galvanising plant allow us to obtain the highest quality zinc coatings and ensure highly efficient process which ensures attractive pricing and short lead times. One of the key principles of our business is our concern for the environment. Thanks to the advanced and highly efficient treatment system, process solutions work in a closed system and the galvanising plant produces no industrial wastewater.

NO NEGATIVE IMPACT ON THE ENVIRONMENT
Electroplating allows us to obtain an attractive and homogeneous coating the final thickness of which, in the range of 3 to 25 µm, can be changed by adjusting the process parameters, such as current flow and time. Before coating, the elements and steel structures delivered for galvanising are carefully degreased and cleaned of rust by etching in acid. The items are then placed in alkaline electrolyte tanks where a coat of zinc is electrolytically applied. In the following stages of the process, the zinc coat is subjected to white, yellow or titanium passivation to improve the adhesion of the paint coating. In order to increase durability, the coatings on the lifting sling line can additionally be sealed.
Entry conditions for electro-galvanisation of structures
If you plan to have your structure galvanised, it is essential that you check that it meets the required conditions.
