This research paper is focused on process and quality verification of the zinc coating with galvanization. The purpose of this research is to describe the process and the circumstance that influence in quality as well adhesive resistence within the coating process. The investigated sample requiress knowledge of the technological processes for zinc coating, qualified sampiling, for verification of adhesion power, lacing power, both mechanical and physical, in the progress of the zinc coating on the surface of the material. At this occasion every attempt to determine the dimension of the surface layer should lead to the measurement of the hardness of this relation.

Hot-dip galvanizing process is one of the decent methods and the most frequent of applying zinc coating on steel surfaces. The research also included a review of methods for testing the thickness of the zinc coating. The purpose of this research paper is to test the zinc coating with magnetic gauge namely the QuaNix 7500, which monitors the quality of hot dip galvanizing.

The results of verifying this have been laid up to scientific analysis and the findings lead to the evaluation proposed by this technique and its application to technical practice.
