Galvanising is a method of rust prevention. The iron or steel object is coated in a thin layer of zinc. This stops oxygen and water reaching the metal underneath - but the zinc also acts as asacraficial metal. Zinc is more reactive than iron, so it oxidises in preference to the iron object.
Hot-dip galvanization is a form of galvanization. This is the process of coating iron and steel with zinc, this then alloys with the surface of the base metal when dipped in a bath of molten zinc at around 449°C. When exposed to the atmosphere, the pure zinc reacts with oxygen to form zinc oxide, which further reacts with carbon dioxide to form zinc carbonate, usually a dull grey, fairly strong material that protects the steel underneath from further corrosion.
Powder coating is applied as a free-flowing, dry powder. The biggest difference compared to a liquid paint and a powder coating is that the powder coating requires no solvent to keep it in a liquid form.The coating is typically applied electrostatically and is then cured under heat to allow it to flow and form a "skin". The powder can be a thermoplastic or a thermoset polymer. It is usually used to create a hard finish that is tougher than conventional paint. Powder coating is mainly used for coating of metals, such as household appliances, automobile and bicycle parts
