Electrogalvanizing is an electroplating technique used to place a layer of zinc metal on top of a steel surface. It involves immersing a steel component into a solution containing zinc salts followed by the application of electricity to induce an electrochemical reaction on top of the steel.
Unistrut® channels and fittings make up a metal framing system that provides weld and drill free connections. The patented Unistrut nut bites into the channel when the fitting is tightened, locking the nut into the channel and creating a connection that is often stronger than a weld. As there are no welds, the Unistrut system is adjustable and reusable. Once the bolts are loosened the nut releases from the channel and can be dismantled and used in other configurations.
