For centuries, architects and engineers have relied upon professional galvanizers to prolong the lifespan of metals. Molten zinc used in the galvanizing process prevents metal substrate corrosion, a phenomenon that can require costly maintenance or replacement. Galvanizers, however, need reliable equipment to continue safeguarding infrastructure.

Improve your galvanizing process with assistance from Chicago Plastic Systems, a leading thermoplastic fabrication solutions provider. We specialize in the manufacture of high-quality plastic products tailored for the galvanizing industry and its suppliers. Our capabilities include:

Plastics Fabrication For Galvanizing
molten zinc immersion process


Key to the success of any galvanizer is their molten zinc immersion process. In order to fully coat metal components, the zinc solution must be contained. Also, spills must be captured and fumes need to be moved away from the workspace. Chicago Plastic Systems fabricates a variety of products designed to optimize galvanizing facility processes. Examples include:

  • Tanks
  • Tank liners
  • Pipes
  • Ductwork
  • Scrubbers
  • Ventilation Systems


Equipment used in the hot-dip galvanization process must be able to endure harsh conditions. Process media can be corrosive, and it sits in tanks for long periods of time. Leaks can hinder production capabilities and cut into profit margins. That’s why Chicago Plastic Systems selects high-quality materials to make galvanizing industry products. Common plastics we use include:

  • Polypropylene, or Polypro
  • Polyvinyl chloride, also called PVC
  • Polyvinylidene fluoride, or PVDF
  • High-density polyethylene, also known as HDPE

Our process tanks and related products are built to last. All corners are butt welded before being extrusion welded, ensuring a comprehensive seam through the plastic. This method provides improved support and strength.
