Zinc is the primary component of the Hot Dip Galvanized coating. Zinc (abbreviation Zn), with atomic number 30, is a natural healthy metal. The silvery, blue-gray Zinc metal is common and abundantin nature. It is the 27th most abundant element in the Earth’s crust, compatible with life – and even more importantly: infinitely recyclable.
Zinc (Zn) naturally exists in air, water, soil, and the biosphere. Most rocks and many minerals, as well as humans, plants and animals contain zinc in varying amounts. Zinc is also common and essential to all life. All living things from the tiniest micro-organisms to humans require zinc to live as it helps with specific metabolic processes. Additionally, zinc is found in a number of products we use daily such as cosmetics, tires, cold remedies, baby-creams to prevent diaper rash, treatments for sunburns, and sunscreens. In fact, zinc oxide blocks more UV rays than any other single ingredient used in sunscreen.
