Electrogalvanized Steel

Electrogalvanized steel is made by running an electric current through a cold zinc and saline bath.  The zinc provides corrosion resistance, and the electroplating process binds the zinc so tightly to the steel that it provides superior resistance against flaking or chipping.  Electrogalvanized steel almost always uses cold rolled steel as the base metal, which offers all of the benefits that cold rolled steel has to offer as well. The thinner coating of zinc required to make electrogalvanized steel makes it best suited for applications that require light weight corrosion resistance.  However, electrogalvanized steel will not hold up as well as hot dipped galvanized steel if a product will be subjected to a corrosive environment for an extended period of time.  Common applications include automotive and heavy truck components, tubing, water heaters, shelving, hinges, metal buildings, and rail cars.
