HOT-DIP GALVANIZING SERVICE
HOT DIP GALVANIZING FOR ENVIRONMENT SUSTAINABILITY
Steel is the most recycled building material. In Europe, its re-use achieves levels of 87%. Once removed, large galvanized steel sections, such as motorway barriers, are completely recycled.
ZINC IS A TOTALLY RECYCLABLE NON-FERROUS METAL
In the galvanizing process, no material is lost, unlike spray applications or other types of coating. What is more, zinc ashes (surface oxidisation of galvanizing bath) and zinc bottom dross (mix of zinc and iron deposited in the tanks) is in part recycled by the same galvanizing facility or transformed for various applications such as additives for rubber, cosmetics and electronic components.
ZINC IS LIFE
Zinc helps us to lead an active and healthy life style.
Among all the vitamins and minerals, zinc produces the most marked effect on our entire immune system.
Zinc improves our memory and our mind and also reduces tiredness and changes in mood. Zinc is essential for favouring the growth of new-born babies, children and teenagers.
GALVANIZED STEEL, AN ESSENTIAL INSTRUMENT IN LIFE CYCLE THINKING
Hot dip galvanizing provides long-term protection against corrosion without maintenance, even in the harshest environments. New community policies consider hot dip galvanized steel as a primary material in green procurement guidelines and in the transparency processes adopted in Life Cycle Assessment. It is a crucial instrument for the implementation of an Integrated Product Policy, and the main operating instrument of “Life Cycle Thinking”.
