Galvanized steel can be used in almost any environment. It will be able to withstand the corrosive elements while the longevity of the steel will not be affected
The corrosion resistance of zinc coatings is determined primarily by the thickness of the coating but varies with the severity of environmental conditions. Each environment affects hot-dip galvanizing differently based on a unique set of corrosion variables. The predictability of the lifetime of a coating is important for planning and budgeting for required maintenance.
