Paper Title:
Galvanized Coatings Produced in a Hot Dip Simulator (HDS)
  Abstract

Hot dip galvanizing has proven to provide excellent protection against corrosion of steel for a wide range of applications. Coatings of Zn-Al alloys on steel sheet give a high corrosion resistance due to the corrosion prevention by zinc and the passivation by Al. Many important industrial processing steps require a reliable procedure for process verification. Verification on production or pilot lines is neither economical nor efficient. Simulators for the HDP (Hot Dip Process) allow laboratory scale simulations of the (hot dip) coating and of the consequent annealing processes occurring in industrial production lines, serving for process and product improvement and development. To improve and further develop the production and the final coating properties, hot dipping experiments are performed in a HDP simulator using different substrates, bath compositions and hot dipping parameters. The results obtained by these simulations are transferable to the production process of real continuous galvanizing lines. Important industrial steps of the process can be simulated in the HDPS with a high variability of parameters.
