Galvanized Steel is coated with zinc to provide corrosion protection to the steel under layer. This is material safety and data sheet for galvanized steel.
Zinc is natural existing and formed element. Zinc is considered an essential mineral for human consumption and is even included in most single tablet vitamin or mineral supplements. Zinc is believed to have many positive antioxidant properties as well playing a key role in healing and the operation of several enzymes. Most diets recommend an intake of approximately 12mg of zinc a day for normal healthy adult.
