You will also find galvanised steel in the series of durable materials, which is a speciality of Nordlux’s and one of our most preferred materials for outdoor products. Therefore, our range of outdoor lamps is broadest in this area. We appreciate the beautiful appearance the product takes on and the material’s great potential, which allows us to offer better and more durable lamps to as many people as possible - in coastal areas and in cities. The quality of the galvanising is a great priority at Nordlux and therefore it is worth knowing what is means, when a lamp is galvanised.
What is galvanising?
Galvanising is a chemical process, where acid cleaned steel is dipped into 460°C melted zinc. When the steel is dipped into the melted zinc, a chemical reaction between the metals occur, where the zinc in a way rusts and form a surface alloy that protects the steel against outside elements that normally would cause rust. This process makes Nordlux’s galvanised products durable and a natural product as it is created of natural materials and metals.
