Hot Dip Galvanizers
Occasionally, small imperfections affect the surface of freshly galvanized steel. Galva-Guard™ is the ideal product to repair these minor defects. This alloy solder wets the surface quickly and easily, giving fast, reliable performance. The high zinc content of Galva-Guard™ hot stick galvanizing solder provides good cathodic protection and repairs blend in well with the galvanized surface.
Galva-Guard™ has a low, stable melting point, and a wide temperature working range. In the galvanizing plant, this means that residual heat is often sufficient to melt and apply Galva-Guard™ to the freshly dipped steel. It also means that it is quick and easy to use in the finishing phase of your operation. Because of its moldablity, hot dip galvanizers can choose to add an additional value added service, filling holes for customers! Galva-Guard™ performs very well filling holes up to 3/8″ in diameter. As most galvanizing plants in the US have gone to either low lead or no lead in their kettles, it makes sense to move forward from those lead containing solders to make your in shop repairs. Galva-Guard™ will help you to remain lead free, while making your solder repairs easier, quicker, and better than ever.
Fabricators & Welders
In the shop and in the field, galvanized surfaces are often damaged by cuts and welds. Galva-Guard™ hot stick galvanizing solder is the best way to repair these areas. Because of its moldable nature, it can be applied to a substantial thickness in almost any orientation.
Fabricators can fill holes up to 3/8″ reliably using Galva-Guard™. Because of the good match with hot dip galvanizing, holes filled with Galva-Guard™ have proven very difficult to see, giving your product excellent visual appeal.
Its unique moldability and high zinc content, plus the fact that it is lead-free, makes it the effective and environmental choice for all types of galvanized zinc repair and touch-up.
The smart choice is the green choice. Use Galva-Guard™ lead-free repair solder for your shop and field repairs. This will make sure your entire job is free of lead, and that your job will meet any known or unknown environmental requirements.
