Hot dip

In galvanization, the wire is first cleaned in an acid bath and then rinsed.
After going through a flux bath to remove surface oxides and protect it from oxidization, it is dried.
A zinc coating is then applied by submerging it in molten zinc. After controlling the coating thickness, it is cooled in a series of water cascades. The wire is now galvanized, and protected from corrosion.
Bezinal® coating provides higher corrosion protection. The galvanized wire is sent through a second kettle of molten zinc-aluminum alloy before being controlled and cooled.
