It depends on what you want to do with it. Galvanisation usually involves zinc anyway.
Zinc is the coating on the steel that makes it galvanized.
A galvanized substance is that which has been coated with a layer of zinc to delay corrosion.It does this by the zinc getting corroded itself,instead of the substance. The outer layer of zinc of any galvanized material, reacts with the atmospheric oxygen to form Zinc Oxide (ZnO), which is stronger than Zinc. Thus, even if the outer layer of zinc undergoes corrosion, the material is getting coated with a stronger substance (ZnO), and thus is better able to resist corrosion.
Yes, there will be a reaction problem using galvanized steel with aluminum. Instead, hot dip galvanized material should be used because the zinc coating is thicker.
it is not better than zinc because zinc is miles better
Steel is commonly galvanized by plating it with Zinc.
Galvanized iron is iron coated with a thin layer of zinc...the reason for this is the the zinc is oxidizes easier than the iron so even if the layer of zinc is broken the zinc will oxidize before the iron...... Gotta love the Chem...-dimes- Galvanized iron is iron coated with a thin layer of zinc...the reason for this is the the zinc is oxidizes easier than the iron so even if the layer of zinc is broken the zinc will oxidize before the iron......

Galvanized Iron is composition of Iron + Carbon to get steel and then steel is coated with Zinc. So Iron+Carbon alloy + Zinc) is Galvanized iron.
copper and zinc both are conductive materials but as copper is in lower position than zinc in electromotive charts zinc is more than copper but other material properties like corrosive force,strength are better for copper. so for daily use copper is better than zinc.
well galvanized metal is nothing more than zinc coated steel. Zinc melts at 787.1 F and steel melts at roughly 1200 F depending on the quality of the steel. So yes you can melt a galvanized nail.
Galvanized steel is made with zinc.
