Production Process and Sureface Treatment of Diamond Grip Grating

The production process of diamond grip grating

Diamond grip grating is a type of non-slip grating known for its high coefficient of friction, maximum load-bearing capacity, and strong resistance to compression. Due to these features, diamond grip grating has gained widespread popularity. Let me explain the production process of diamond grip grating.

To begin with, the appropriate sheet material is selected for diamond grip grating. Then, a punching machine is used to create the tooth-shaped long slotted holes and elongated round holes. These two steps are performed separately because they require different molds for the tooth-shaped and elongated round holes. After completing these two processes, the final step is to raise the protrusions, exposing the tooth-shaped pattern on the surface. This completes the hole pattern of diamond grip grating.

If smaller treads are required, additional processes such as cutting, bending, and galvanizing are carried out.

Therefore, the manufacturing process of a piece of diamond grip grating is labor-intensive and time-consuming. Producing a single piece of diamond grip grating follows the same set of procedures as mass production. Hence, when customizing non-slip grating, it is advisable for clients to minimize the production time and labor required. Determining the maximum quantity needed in one order is the most suitable approach.

Surface treatment methods and characteristics of diamond grip grating

When selecting diamond grip grating, customers generally request surface treatment techniques to enhance corrosion resistance and extend the lifespan of the steel grating. There are typically three surface treatment methods: hot-dip galvanizing, cold galvanizing, and painting.

Characteristics of hot-dip galvanizing for diamond grip grating surface treatment

Rust and corrosion resistance: After production, steel grating appears as black. Through polishing and acid cleaning, hot-dip galvanizing can effectively prevent rust and corrosion.
Long service life: The typical lifespan of hot-dip galvanized steel grating is 50-60 years.
Reduced investment: The extended service life of hot-dip galvanized steel grating reduces the need for replacement, thereby reducing the overall cost for customers.

Characteristics of cold galvanizing for diamond grip grating surface treatment

“Cold galvanizing,” also known as “electroplating,” involves the displacement reaction between zinc ions and iron ions in a zinc salt solution through electrolysis. Typically, no heating is required, and the zinc coating is minimal. However, cold galvanized steel grating is prone to rust in moist environments. It is cheaper than hot-dip galvanizing.
Based on our experience, if cold galvanized steel grating is used outdoors, it tends to rust after exposure to rainwater. In humid environments, rusting can occur within 2 to 3 months. The rust resistance is poor.

Characteristics of painting for diamond grip grating surface treatment

Painting is mainly applied to the surface treatment of diamond grip grating. The processing cost of painted steel grating is lower than that of hot-dip galvanizing. The rust resistance is moderate, but it is more susceptible to wear. However, painting allows for a variety of color options.
Particularly when diamond grip grating is used in machinery equipment, the color of the steel grating should match the equipment. In such cases, painting is chosen as the surface treatment method.
