Range Servant’s quality washers, BT1000, BT1300 and BT1950 are all made of Hot-dip galvanized steel. Range Servant has used the company Halmstad Varmförzinkning for the majority of 30 years. But what is Hot-dip galvanizing and why is it used for our washers?
Hot-dip galvanization is the process of coating iron and steel with zinc, to form zinc carbonate, a usually dull grey (see pic below), fairly strong material that protects the steel underneath from corrosion. Galvanized steel is widely used in applications where corrosion resistance is needed, and is considered superior in terms of cost and life-cycle. It can be identified by the crystallization patterning on the surface (often called a “spangle”).
Below is a picture of the Range Servant washer made of Hot-dip galvanized steel. These washers are made to withstand corrosion and have a long lifespan.
