Cold Galvanizing Coating for Metal Material

Cold Galvanizing Coating:

Corrosion is a common problem faced by metal materials, leading to degradation and reduced lifespan. To combat this issue, cold galvanizing coatings offer an effective solution. It involves applying a zinc-rich coating onto the metal surface, creating a barrier that protects against corrosion and rust.

The process of cold galvanizing is simple and can be performed even without specialized equipment. A zinc-rich paint or primer is applied by spraying The coating onto the cleaned and prepared metal surface. The paint contains a high percentage of zinc powder, which acts as a sacrificial anode when exposed to moisture or other corrosive elements. In the presence of corrosion-inducing agents, the zinc sacrificially corrodes instead of the metal, thereby protecting the underlying surface.

Cold galvanizing Coatings provide several advantages over hot-dip galvanizing, another popular method of protecting metal surfaces. Hot-dip galvanizing involves immersing the metal in a bath of molten zinc, which can be cumbersome and impractical for certain applications. Cold galvanizing, on the other hand, allows for easy touch-ups and repairs, making it more versatile.

   Why Choose Cold Galvanizing Coating?

  • Convenience: Cold galvanizing coating can be done in the fabricating shop or on site.
  • Repair: It’s often used to repair weld burns or other damage to newly galvanized steel.
  • Primary protection: It can even be specified as the primary galvanizing system.
Cold Galvanizing Coating:

Another advantage of cold galvanizing is its versatility in terms of application methods. It can be applied using brush, roller, or spray, depending on the size and intricacy of the metal surface. This flexibility makes it feasible for both small-scale touch-ups and large-scale coating projects.

Tips for Cold Galvanizing Coating Success:

Material selection:

  • Choose Steel with carbon contents below 0.25% to reduce susceptibility to embrittlement.
  • OPT for aluminum-killed steels, which show less strain-age embrittlement.
Cold Galvanizing Coating:

Cold-Working Considerations:

  • Cold-worked steel less than 1/8” (3mm) thick are unlikely to experience embrittlement.
  • Maintain a bending radius of at least three times the section thickness.
  • For carbon content between 0.1% and 0.25%, stress-relieve the material if bending is less than 3 times.
  • Drill holes instead of punching them in material thicker than ¾” (19mm).
  • Flame-cutting or sawing is preferred, especially for heavy sections.
  • In critical applications, hot-work the steel above 1200°F (650°C).
Cold Galvanizing Coating:


  • Where cold-working cannot be avoided, stress-relieve the part at 1100°F (593°C) for one hour per inch (2.5cm) of material thickness.
