Hot Dipped Galvanized Steel

Our manufacturing facility, a dynamic production team and adherence to strict quality control measures ensures a product of the highest grade.

Production Facilities

Product Specifications

ISL’s manufacturing facility is strategically located in the port city of Karachi, the state-of-the-art facility comprises of a non-oxidizing furnace with a continuous galvanizing line from some of the top suppliers in the world such as Tenova, and Ajax-Toco.

Currently ISL has the capability of producing over 400,000MT of Galvanized products.

Manufacturing Process

Cold rolled steel sheet is cleaned and annealed in a continuous NOX furnace before being immersed in a molten zinc bath under an inert atmosphere. The molten zinc forms a metallurgical bond with the steel and protects the substrate by a sacrificial protection mechanism; the zinc sacrifices itself to protect the steel against corrosion.

Manufacturing Standards

Our products are produced as per:

  • JIS G3302 and equivalent

Advantages

Long Life

Hot Dipped Galvanizing increases the life of cold rolled material by many years under extreme weather conditions.

Reliability

The coating thicknesses are regular, predictable and easily specified.

Complete Coverage

Because it is dipped in molten zinc the entire surface of the base metal is coated uniformly.

Toughest Coating & Long Lasting

In hot dipped galvanizing there is a structural bond between zinc and iron. It’s not just a coating but the zinc itself becomes a part of steel giving it a long lasting protection against corrosion. Strong adhesion with the base metal besides service life gives good formability in subsequent manufacturing processes.

Low Maintenance Cost

Galvanizing is the cheapest in long term maintenance.

Three Way Protection

  1. It weathers at a slower rate giving it a long and predictable life.
  2. The coating sacrifices itself to any small areas exposed through drilling, cutting or accidental damage.
