The Zinc-Tech Advantage

Greenhouse Structures

Fact:  Fully Fused Galvanized Surface

Since Zinc-Tech products are galvanized after the tube is formed and welded the exterior surface is fully galvanized unlike products manufactured from pre-galvanized strip.

Benefit: No premature failure or discoloration of the weld seam as is typical with pre-galvanized processes. Additionally, the interior surfaces are fully protected by zinc rich coatings which will not rust internally and stain the exterior surface.

Fact:  Better Corrosion Performance

Zinc-Tech products have the highest percentage of “free zinc” coating weight.

Benefit: “Free zinc” refers to the percentage of total coating weight that is pure zinc. Typically galvanized products have multiple layers of zinc/iron alloy layers. Pure zinc, free of iron content will provide superior protection thereby increasing coating performance. Couple this with the ability to apply UV or thermal cure coatings inline, and you have a product that sets a new standard for corrosion performance.

Due to the design of the Zinc-Tech process, finished products have both higher yield and tensile strength properties.

Benefit: Higher tensile and yield strength means a much stronger structure. This allows longer span lengths, the ability to use a lighter wall material for cost savings and less welding and fabrication time for your customers.

Fact:  A Stronger Product

Tubing intended for use in greenhouse structures must be strong, resist humid environments and be easy to fabricate. Tubing manufactured with the Zinc-Tech process will outperform any other production method. The following summarizes the unique product characteristics and benefits of greenhouse tube manufactured by the inline process.

Fact:  Exceptional Zinc Adhesion and Ductility

Zinc-Tech products posses exceptional zinc adhesion and ductility properties.

Benefit: Worry-free fabrication from flaking or peeling of the zinc coating, even under the most extreme of conditions.
