The KZN Branch of SAIMechE invites you to attend a technical evening at UKZN


TOPIC: Corrosion Control and Hot Dip Galvanizing 
Hot dip galvanizing is a proven corrosion control technology for over a century. In the presentation we explore some basic elements and types of corrosion. Some basic metallurgy will be discussed, including an overview of the expected zinc and zinc/iron alloys that form and how Zinc coatings protect. A short overview will be provided on how zinc reacts in different environments, which allows us to make predictions with regard to service life of hot dip galvanized zinc components. The presentation will be concluded with a broad overview of duplex coatings.
