Our Thermal Diffusion Coating technology is an environment-friendly process that offers superior corrosion protection and wear resistance as well as anti-galling properties. Following are some highlights of the ArmorGalv® technology which is, in fact, a modern, greatly improved, version of the well established Sherardizing zinc/iron diffusion process:
By diffusing zinc atoms into steel, it creates layers of zinc/iron alloy on any steel part, including wrought and/or forged steel, castings, powdered metal (with no impregnation required!), and all grades of stainless steel, to create a surface that is:
Steel and and non-ferrous metals face greater engineering challenges than ever before. Higher demands on metal components in Oil & Gas, Automotive, Aerospace, Military, Transportation and Construction, call for a proven, cost-effective, and environmentally sound coating. ArmorGalv Thermal Diffusion of Zinc process makes an important contribution by providing an economical, ecologically viable coating solution that achieves these standards, in compliance with ASTM A1059.
ArmorGalv is a pioneer in the field of Zinc Thermal Diffusion, a method for coating and finishing industrial materials. Our process is time tested, and among the most modern and effective corrosion and hydrogen embrittlement protection methods for metal products. At the same time, our patented technology protects and improves the materials properties, whereby completely new fields of application may be developed.
Just to name a few: Galvanic corrosion protection, Conductivity, Wear prevention, Corrosion value, Yield strength, Tension strength, Surface hardness, Non-sparking.

The ArmorGalv Thermal Diffused Zinc (TDZ) system is a surface treatment for steel, corrosion resistant alloys and other metals in compliance with ASTM A1059. Components are "baked" with zinc+ powder in a closed cylinder for 2 - 3 hours at sub 700°F. The Zinc+ reacts with the metal and creates an even Metallic Zn-Fe alloy bond on the surface of the parts. The optimized coating thicknesses can be set from 4-80 microns, and results in a multilayered sacrificial barrier coating.
