Galvanized piping materials undergo a special treatment process called “galvanization” which is performed to prevent the process of rusting. Galvanization is done by adding a protective zinc coating to either steel piping supplies or iron piping supplies. One of the most common ways to galvanize steel or iron pipes or pipe fittings is hot-dip galvanization.

Galvanization protects iron or steel piping supplies in the following ways:

  1. It prevents corrosive substances from breaking down the sensitive areas of the metal pipe or pipe fittings by coating the material with corrosion-resistant zinc.
  2. It creates a sacrificial anode which protects the iron or steel pipe or pipe fitting even if the zinc coating gets scratched or chipped.

Keep in mind that although the galvanization process prevents the rusting process, rusting is inevitable. Every form of metal, regardless of how it is pretreated or processed will at some point begin to rust. Having galvanized steel pipes/pipe fittings or galvanized iron pipes/pipe fittings will significantly extend the longevity or your piping supplies compared to those that are not treated with the galvanization process.
