1. Hot dipped galvanized

Hot dipped galvanized is a process of coating steel or iron with a layer of zinc to prevent corrosion and rust. It is also known as Galvanizing, the most common method of preserving metal from deterioration. The process involves dipping the material in molten zinc plating, which provides a protective coating over the surface of metals.

Most forged shackles are designed to have a safety factor of 6 times the Working Load Limit (W.L.L). This means they are strong enough to withstand at least six times the force or load applied to them without breaking or coming apart.

2. Electric galvanized

Electric galvanizing is a metal finishing process that involves applying a thin layer of zinc to the surface of metal objects. This protective coating helps to prevent corrosion or oxidation from occurring. The electric galvanizing process is done using electrolytic baths and an electric current, which causes the molten zinc to bond to the surface of the metal and form a robust and protective coating.

3. Powder coated

Powder coating applies a decorative and protective finish to various products industries and consumers use. The powder used for the process is a mixture of finely ground particles of pigment and resin, which is sprayed onto a surface to be coated. The charged powder particles adhere to the electrically grounded surfaces until heated and fused into a smooth coating in a curing oven. The result is a uniform, durable, high-quality, and attractive finish.
