Wedge Anchor Hot Dip Galvanizing vs Mechanical Galvanizing
Wedge anchors are often finished with hot dip or mechanical galvanization processes that allow the substrate metals that lie underneath the finishes to be protected against numerous types of corrosion.
Hot dip galvanizing provides a mixture of iron and zinc that adds a sacrificial layer of protection to the entire substrate metal, including the corners and edges. Mechanically plated coatings utilize a flash coating of copper that is followed by a glass bead and zinc powder tumbling process that coats the wedge anchor.
The substrate and zinc metallurgical bond within the mechanically plated coatings method is considerably weaker than that of the hot-dip galvanized coatings process.
