The use of hot-dip galvanized steel continues to evolve as new markets emerge. Hot-dip galvanizing's initial low cost, superior durability, and low-maintenance schedule make it suitable for almost any applications. LRP Gavanizing serves a wide range of customers, ranging from small fabricators to major multi-national corporations and a wide range of industries such as agriculture, communication, constructions, electrical, petrochemicals, telecommunications, transportation, original equipment manufacturers, as well as the arts. With two locations and decades of experience, there are no jobs too big or too small for us to undertake.
As we embrace the information-age, we demand access to information anytime and anywhere, whether it is talking on the phone, texting, or checking our facebook pages. Cell phone and other communication towers must be continuously built to ensure that we have access to this information wherever we go. Tens and thousands of communication towers have been built throughout the country and have enjoyed the benefits of hot-dip galvanizing by providing rust-protection for up to 50 years with little or no maintenance.
Today, galvanized steel is found in a many construction applications. Galvanizing's low initial costs along with its durability and sustainability, make it the ideal choice for corrosion protection. Hot-dip galvanized steel is 100 percent recyclable and has a reclamation rate for zinc and steel of 80 percent and 100 percent respectively. Combining all these factors, there is no doubt that hot-dip galvanizing is the optimal choice for rust protection of structural steel.
Transmission poles, solar panels and wind towers, are among electrical utilities' most critical assets. Steel corrosion repairs and replacements are costly, time consuming and unnecessary.
Hot-dip galvanizing assures that these electrical utility assets have the longest service life possible, by offering automatic rust-protection and eliminating maintenance for the lifetime of the asset. The availability, quick turnaround time and longevity make hot-dip galvanized steel the material of choice throughout the power industry.
As of today, Hot-dip galvanizing is the only corrosion protection capable of withstanding the harsh conditions of many industrial environments, such as mining, oil refinery, recycling plants, etc. Zinc offers properties unlike any other and the zinc-iron alloy layers provides durability, sustainability and environmental friendliness.
The transportation sector relies heavily on steel to build infrastructure. Bridges and highway utilize steel that is constantly exposed to and corroded by weather, chemicals and pollutants. Galvanizing steel is crucial and has been successfully used to prevent corrosion in highway and bridge applications, especially in tropical country such as Indonesia. From bridges to overpasses, guard rails and highway signs, hot-dip galvanizing has been proven to protect against corrosion for decades.
Asides from the aforementioned industries, Hot-dip Galvanizing's applications are also found in a much more common things that we hardly notice. Parking structures, bus stops, sewer covers found in homes and commercial buildings, and even art/sculpture installations are just a few examples where galvanized steel are used and how versatile and wide the use of Hot-dip Galvanizing process.
