Product Description

Where additional resistance to corrosion is required, malleable cast iron fittings can be hot-dip zinc coated (galvanised) prior to machining. This process involves coating the fittings with zinc which, in addition to its natural resistance to corrosion, provides electrochemical protection where the iron of the fitting is exposed by damage. Mild steel fittings can be supplied with a proprietary zinc-based coating. The coating weight on Crane galvanised fittings conforms to the requirements of BS EN ISO 1461 1998 and ASTM 153 with a minimum coating of 610 g/m2 (2oz/ft2) equal to a thickness of 86µm (0.0034 in). Average coatings are well in excess of this and exceed the requirements given in BS EN 10242 and ISO 49.When ordering galvanised or zinc coated fittings add the suffix ‘G’ to the figure number.
