Advantages of Hot-Dip Galvanizing

Hot-dip galvanizing is the process of coating fabricated steel by immersing it in a broth of molten zinc. This process provides several different benefits to the steel it protects. For starters, it creates an extremely durable and long-lasting product. Galvanized coatings on steel can last in excess of 50 years, continually protecting steel against corrosive elements.  

Additionally, less maintenance is required. Hot dipped galvanized stalls are self-maintaining, thicker, and because they last longer, maintenance costs are inevitably lower.

Bottom line, there’s a major difference between lower quality stalls and stalls that have gone though the hot-dip galvanizing process. The costs of maintaining stalls that have not been treated with the process is much higher compared to ones that have. 

Advantages of Powder Coating

Powder coating is a type of coating that is applied as a free-flowing, dry powder. Unlike conventional liquid paint, which is delivered via an evaporating solvent, power coating is applied electrostatically and cured under heat or with ultraviolet light. This method is used to create a thick, hard finish that is much tougher than conventional paint.

Additionally, the powder coating application and drying processes create a finish unmatched by any other paint product. Because the powder melts and reforms as a solid, it creates a smooth surface without and drips or runs. It’s perfect, every time.

And because the powder is free of toxic chemicals and solvents, the process is known to be much safer for the environment, and inevitability your horse.
