Why Galvanized Pipes Do Not Rust Easily?

Galvanized pipes are processed to produce a relatively thick, dense galvanized layer on the surface of the steel. This galvanized layer adheres to the surface of the steel, and it effectively protects the steel body from other acidic and alkaline corrosive solutions. Therefore galvanized pipes do not rust as easily as ordinary steel pipes. If your project requires high corrosion resistance, it will be the best choice.

Factors Affecting the Rusting of Galvanized Pipes

1. Environment

In industrial environments and urban areas, galvanized pipes will rust at a faster rate. In suburban or rural areas, where there is less pollution, it will rust more slowly and will last longer.

2. Temperature

The temperature of the environment will also affect the corrosion rate of galvanized pipes. If the temperature is high, the rate of corrosion will also be accelerated, while the low temperature will slow down the corrosion rate.

3. Soil

The acidity of the soil affects the rate at which galvanized pipe corrodes and rusts. Galvanized pipe can last 30 to 50 years in the harshest soils and 50 years or more in less corrosive soils.
