Midland’s-based Rotech Laboratories has a strong, well-established reputation as a test house offering a first-class service to support our customers. This is evident in our long-standing relationship with the UK’s largest hot dip galvanizing organization.
Hot dip galvanizing is the process of coating iron or steel with a layer of zinc by immersing the metal in a bath of molten zinc. During the process, a metallurgically bonded coating is formed which protects the steel from harsh environments and corrosive attack.
Control of the chemical make-up of the baths is vital in ensuring the quality of the zinc coating’s adherence, formability, weldability, uniformity and appearance.
In addition to providing bulk bath analysis reports, Rotech also provides individually formatted test data which our customers can utilize for internal quality assessments. This helps them to control the uniformity of bath analysis at multi-site locations, thus ensuring the quality of their products to international standards. The data can be introduced directly into both external and internal quality assessment reports. Unacceptable test results can also be communicated verbally to clients prior to reporting allowing for immediate remedial actions and so preventing potentially costly quality issues and inferior product.
