Construction Industry

Connection parts or fittings made of steel, stainless steel, or die-cast zinc can be effectively protected against corrosion in the marine industry by applying Galvano aluminium. Contact corrosion problems experienced with aluminium struts are also avoided. If necessary, aluminium products can also receive a decorative post-treatment (such as by anodising). Organic layers adhere very well to passivated aluminium surfaces.

Aluminium alloys are widely used for window or door frames or railings. Steel fittings which are attached to these aluminium alloys are exposed to a severe galvanic corrosion attack but this can be effectively protected with an aluminium coating applied in an electrochemical process. The same applies to steel attachments on aluminium cladding boards. They can also be stabilised permanently.
