Is galvanised Steel rust-proof?

Is galvanised Steel rust-proof?


Not exactly, it is steel which has been coated with another metal that doesn't corrode as quickly as steel. So the steel should last many years without starting to rust. How long it lasts depends on the environment it is in. Usually at least ten to twenty years if left continuously outside.

got a similar one from garden selections some time ago and the tyre and tube perished in very little time:( guess they were old stock from somewhere

These types of wheelbarrow are difficult to tip out forwards due to the lack of a loop around the front of the wheel to brake/brace against.

These cheapo wheelbarrows have rubber tyres and thin tubes which just fall apart - they are terrible quality. I have bought a few in the past and they were a false economy.

That's until some user drops a couple of bricks that pierce that protective layer. Then all hell breaks lose.

I'm a bit too pedantic but galvanisation usually involves coating the steel/whatever with a material that has a higher reactivity and oxidizes faster than the underlying material not slower. It's sacrificial. It gets attacked in preference. Eventually that is why something that is galvanised will still corrode, because the top coating of zinc or whatever has gone.

No offence intended. But science is fun folks.

No offence taken. I didn't go into the details. There are a number of reasons why the zinc protects the steel from corrosion not just one. Oxidation is just the start of the process. Of course once the coating has gone, as with any coating, the steel will corrode.

Always good for wheeling the wife home in... after a night out with the girls

Nice one ! Now its so much easier to carry my balls around when I'm out and about

That's the Valantines gift sorted!

The lack of a nose on this makes tipping it difficult.

The lack of nose doesn't seem to hinder this one from tipping

This type of barrow also uses the **** over tit principle if you try and bounce it over a rock or step, once you tip you wont stop, lack of front wheel brace ensures that you will be suitably embarrassed at the least
