What is Galvanizing?

Galvanizing is where items are immersed in Molton Zinc at a temperature of 450 degrees Celsius. The zinc reacts with the iron and forms a fully metallurgical bonded coating.

What is the benefit?

The benefit of Galvanizing is to provide a protective coating over your metal work to protect against corrosion and give a longer life span to your metal work.

You can choose to have your items left in their galvanized state or you can have a topcoat paint applied over the galvanize. The painted topcoat lasts longer over galvanize.

Galvanizing does not take place at Jacks Bush Forge, the items are sent away for this treatment and as such we provide an estimate only of this optional extra.
