Galvanized (both EG as well as hot dip)

The process of hot-dip galvanizing results in a metallurgical bond between zinc and steel with a series of distinct iron-zinc alloys. The resulting coated steel can be used in much the same way as uncoated. Galvanized steel can be welded; however, one must exercise caution around the resulting zinc fumes. Galvanized steel is suitable for high-temperature applications of up to 392 F (200 C). The use of galvanized steel at temperatures above this will result in peeling of the zinc at the intermetallic layer. Galvanized sheet steel is often used in automotive manufacturing to enhance the corrosion performance of exterior body panels.
