RUST PROOFING

METALIZING

This process has been used by our company for many years. We have homes located within feet of the ocean that have been there for 10 years + and the ironwork is still rust free. 

The metalized surface has a cathodic effect that sacrifices itself to corrosion so that the iron won't rust. It's like galvanizing only bonds better and paints better.

  • Metalizing creates a barrier that is far stronger than galvanizing or paint.

  • Metalizing has a bond and tensile strength that makes it almost impossible to remove.

  • Metalizing has an ideal surface to paint to, unlike galvanizing.

  • Metalizing gives paint, regularly last for 10 years, a change that is often undermined by rust. 

  • Metalizing protects high wear areas like gates and gate posts hat are bound to get chirped and scratches. 

  • Metalizing will help as we change to more environmentally safe paint.

  • Metalizing is cost effective. Repainting a fence every 2 or 3 years is is expensive, environmentally destructive, and you wind up with your fence looking bad for portions of the process.
