Sendzimir process

Sendzimir process
A continuous strip galvanizing process, named after its inventor. The strip is wound from a coil while the oil or grease adhering to it is removed by oxidation. It is then annealed, and the oxides are reduced by ammonia, after which it is cooled to 500°C and immersed in a zinc bath, which is kept molten at about 45O°C by the heat from the steel strip. On leaving the bath, the strip is cut and coiled
