Lapham-Hickey delivers top-quality galvanized steel coil and sheet in the two main processes of hot dipped and electro-galvanizing in a variety of coating weights, finishes, thickness and widths.
What is Galvanized Steel?
Galvanized steel is carbon steel sheet coated with zinc on both sides. There are two methods to producing galvanized steel: continuous hot dipping and electro-galvanizing.
In hot dipping, steel passes through a bath of molten zinc. In electro-galvanizing, a layer of zinc is bonded to the steel through electrolytic disposition.
The zinc coating effectively and economically protects bare steel from corrosion. The zinc not only shields the steel from the environment, it also sacrifices itself to protect the underlying steel sheet.
Lapham-Hickey’s hot dipped galvanized products are manufactured to and conform with all exacting specifications.
