The adhesion of the organic coating to the water-cooled zinc coating was stronger than to the air-cooled one, both before and after 600 hours of salt spray exposure (Figure 11).
Such products require a minimal thickness of the coating galvanized because too thick zinc coating requires additional work on re-threading, that leads to spalling the coating, the loss of corrosion resistance and, consequently, the reject of the entire product [6].
Using a Time to First Maintenance Chart (See Figure 1), developed using the Zinc Coating Life Predictor Model by Dr.
MTM Metalizing had carried out the thermal sprayed zinc coating procedure on helideck support structures, ship vessels, bridges and tunnels.
This is also called zinc coating, but applied in a cold, electrolytic bath rather than a molten zinc bath.
According to Bill Jordan, General Manager of MTM Metalizing, the zinc coating on the flare boom will provide significantly better long-term protection than other anti-corrosion measures.
Although appropriate to test paints and other organic/non-organic coatings, ASTM B117 tests do not allow the pure zinc coating applied via the hot-dip galvanizing process to experience the typical, real-world, wet and dry cycles that occur in exterior use.
It applies a zinc coating to cold reduced strip with the galvanised material going either to the general trade where typical end uses include ducting and decking or as the base material for paint coated products,destined for the construction sector.
The company accepts shipments of galvanized scrap trimmings from regional stamping plants and removes the zinc coating to produce a foundry-quality grade of steel scrap.
When the zinc is applied (normally by spraying) the coated item can be left hanging on a moving conveyor, and before it reaches the oven the zinc coating will have already flashed-off and dried.

once it has been sprayed on and has dried and cured you will get a 'dosed circuit potential and the lower potential of the zinc coating will 'ply down' the steel's potential to a more electro-negative potential.
