How to prevent the threat of corrosion in your project by using our galvanized pipes
Corrosion is a natural process.
When metals react with another substance such as oxygen, hydrogen, electrical currents or even dirt and bacteria, it is bound to corrode. Corrosion can also happen when metals are placed under too much stress. This causes them to crack.
There are about 5 types of corrosion that we won’t be going into today but just to educate you, they are uniform, crevice, pitting, intergranular corrosion, and stress corrosion cracking (which we have mentioned earlier).
Now, since interaction with the external environment causes these metals to corrode, can you imagine what would happen to your pipes that interact with H2O (water) all the time, if you use non-galvanized ones? See where we’re going with this? Exactly.
This is where we come in.
The process of galvanizing prevents alloys from corroding. This method involves dipping steel into molten zinc. The iron in the steel reacts with the zinc to create a tightly bonded alloy coating which serves as protection. The process has been around for more than 250 years and has been used for corrosion protection of things like artistic sculptures and playground equipment.
People get scared when they see corrosion. It is normal, it’s just like how human beings fear death. What people don’t know, is that corrosion is a natural process. No matter how long we may try to stall it, it will happen. That’s why you need to work with a company that can guarantee you the highest quality galvanized products.
A well-galvanized steel product from DBS Industries will save you from constant corrosion-related worries. And you know what’s even better, we offer a warranty on some of our products so get in touch!
