ArmorGalv® is the trade name for a thermal diffusion galvanizing technology developed by the Distek Group in 1993. It is a method of applying a uniform, sacrificial, zinc- iron alloy coating using a metallurgical vapor diffusion process.
ArmorGalv® can be applied on many surface types including powder metal, steel, stainless steel and castings and forgings.
Using a thermal diffusion galvanizing process, multiple layers of zinc‐iron alloy are formed, from a super corrosion resistant gamma layer to a compact delta layer and then the zeta layer.
Think of an onion, with each layer harder and more corrosion-resistant than the previous one.
ArmorGalv® has a range of product applications for use across several industries.
Using the proven thermal diffusion galvanizing process is straightforward.

Thermal diffusion galvanizing is backed by a range of application of a range of technical standards.
These standards include:
Zinc alloy thermal diffusion coatings on steel fasteners, hardware, and other products.
International Standard for Thermal Zinc Diffusion coatings on ferrous products. Specification.
Paints and varnishes. Powder organic coatings for galvanized or sherardized steel products for construction purposes.
Zinc coatings. Guidelines and recommendations for the protection against corrosion of iron and steel in structures. Part 1. General principles of design and corrosion resistance.
