Zinc is a natural metallic element. It is present in the natural environment both in the air and soil as well as in water reservoirs. Zinc is harmless to the environment and even necessary for the proper development of living organisms. Suitable for reprocessing (recycling). Due to the properties of zinc, its layer on the surface of steel effectively protects it against corrosion. The main method of applying a layer of zinc - galvanizing, in addition to galvanizing, is hot-dip galvanizing.
This method is mainly used for large steel structures exposed to the elements. Depending on the thickness of the galvanized elements, the obtained zinc layer has a thickness of 50 to over 100 micrometers. During the operation of the galvanized structure, unprotected with a paint coating, the zinc layer is reduced. The average loss of the zinc layer in non-aggressive conditions is 1 - 2 µm/year. Hence, the average durability of the zinc coating is 30 years and can even reach 100 years. The hot-dip galvanizing process is not a metallurgical process, therefore it is not harmful to the environment.
