Galvanizing steel Selection

4 basic elements that can affect the galvanized coating:

1. Carbon in excess of 0.25%

2. Silicon levels between 0.04% and 0.15% or above 0.22% can result in excess growth of intermetallic layers, compared to steel with less than 0.04% or between 0.15% and 0.22%.

3. Phosphorous in excess of 0.04%

4. Manganese in excess of 1.3%
