Colorzinc galvanizing

Does anyone who know what it is? Can you really galvanize something a base color?

Ha I doubt they would answer. I was curious of anyone ever heard of it or it was a made up term.

It's a process offered by Voigt & Schweiter, basically some proprietary color-treatment post-galv.

Not to be fl, but this is kind of a LMGTFY situation...

My understanding is you can do a specialized coating OVER the galv... but, not in the galv.

It sounds like in both situations the galv company does the paint work.

ECR responded to my question about this on their Facebook page a few weeks back. Basically, as I understood it, it's a proprietary galvanizing treatment from certain (authorized) galvanizing shops. It yields a surface that can then be primed and painted over. I believe that ECR Colorzinqs their bulkheads and then seam-seals, then epoxy primes, then paints them.

You could look it up on Facebook, Barry, but you don't have Facebook.

If you have to prime first who cares what color the color zinc is? That's the part I don't get.

I was just wondering if anyone knew anything about it other than what's on google.

The zinc comes out black, but I think there are other colors as well, for when you don't want to paint.

I think getting a galvanized chassis coated black would look nice.

I wouldn't have the galvanizers do anything but dip it. They are barely competent to do that without banging it up, plus it always has to have a ton of clean up done. Putting any coating on there would just screw it all up.

I would assume anyone offering this service is a bit more competent but that's probably a bad assumption.

If they are making architectural pieces or structures it probably doesn't matter. Vehicle parts, that require precision fit and open holes and no globs all over the place, whole 'nuther level.
