What is the difference in the surface treatment of nails

Why do we need to treat the surface of the nail? In general, it is to adapt to the environment. The temperature and humidity of different climates lead to different degrees of corrosion of building materials.

For example, in a dry environment, the building will not have too high requirements for the rust resistance of the nails, even if the simple polished nails can be used well. In the seaside house, the roof nail requirements have a strong anti-rust ability, not only often choose galvanized nails, but even choose stainless steel as a nail material.

Therefore, when customers purchase nail products, it is important to consider the climate of the target market and choose nails that can adapt to the climate.

The common surface treatment types of nails are polishing, electric galvanizing, hot dip galvanizing, and so on. Let’s introduce them:

When the nails are only used in a dry environment, the choice of polished nails is suitable and reduces the cost. When the nail is finished, the surface of the nail is full of metal debris stains.

Therefore, polishing is a way to beautify the surface of the nail. Not only that, customers often have specific requirements.

For example, when customers purchase nails to increase inventory, even polished nails also have anti-rust requirements, so Ruifeng can provide customers with the service of applying anti-rust oil to nails or applying specific pigments, which can increase the anti-rust ability and increase brand recognition.

In order to protect nails, extend service life, prevent rust, and prevent corrosion, galvanized is a good solution. Commonly used are electric galvanizing, hot dip galvanizing, and other methods.

Electro galvanizing is a process in which iron is placed in a charged solution of zinc and salt to form a coated surface after a chemical reaction. Appearance is smooth and uniform, glossy.

Electrogalvanized surface thickness is relatively thin, generally between 3 microns– 12 microns. These are typically 3 microns or 5 microns. Therefore, galvanizing can not withstand strong corrosion, not suitable for use on acidic materials such as redwood and cedar.

Hot dip galvanizing involves immersing iron in molten zinc to produce a solid, thick coating with a dull gray appearance and a thickness of more than 40 microns.

Therefore, hot-dip galvanized nails not only have strong corrosion and rust resistance but also have a long service life, which is suitable for use in outdoor exposure, acid, corrosion, humidity, and other environments.

Ruifeng has its own hot dip galvanizing workshop, which can provide precise service according to your specific needs.
