Galvanizing – Avoiding Distortion

Distortion occurs due to the relief of locked-in stresses within a steel section or fabrication. At room temperature, the steel is sufficiently strong to accommodate such stresses, but at the galvanizing bath temperature (about 450°C), the steel`s yield strength may be reduced by up to 40% (Note, the steel recovers its full strength when it …
