Electro-galvanized nails are covered with a layer of zinc as a protective barrier against rust and corrosion. When the surface of galvanized nails is damaged, the surrounding coating dissolves to protect the inner material from rust. Zinc protects nails from corrosion as the steel underneath is separated from water/ moisture in the air. Electroplating is a process where zinc is applied by the use of an electrical current. Since 2020 we also offer hot-dip galvanizing.

Eco-friendly galvanizing process

Galvanized steel is one of the most environmentally friendly building materials available in the market. In terms of environmental sustainability, not all materials come close to what galvanized steel has to offer in terms of its properties in production, in its life cycle, or in its reusability. Our automatic lines are economical and efficient, the vapor absorbers and wastewater treatment plants produced by Wigal Company do not allow harmful substances to enter the environment.

Galvanized steel is also recyclable. It can be recycled separately as an individual product or it can be recycled with other steel scraps. Galvanization can definitely be considered a sustainable and eco-friendly process.
