    Metal Galvanising

    Shaw Metal Solutions Ltd was established in 2011 by directors Steve Shaw, Harvey Shaw and Ian Wilkinson.

    Galvanization, or galvanisation, is the process of applying a protective zinc coating to steel or iron, to prevent rusting. The most common method is hot-dip galvanisation, in which parts are submerged in a bath of molten zinc. 

    Galvanising protects in two ways:

    • it forms a coating of corrosion-resistant zinc which prevents corrosive substances from reaching the more delicate part of the metal
    • the zinc serves as a sacrificial anode so that even if the coating is scratched, the exposed steel will still be protected by the remaining zinc.
