How to protect metal?

Which material is non-rusting?
The only metal that doesn’t oxidize is gold. All other metals are subject to oxidation: in the case of steel containing iron, it turns out as rust. Whoever uses steels products aims to slow down the oxidation process. RD Italia uses pre-galvanized steel, where the galvanizing on both sides of the sheet is done in a rolling mill. Having both galvanized surfaces, this material is very resistant to corrosion and oxidation; this happens because zinc oxidizes before iron does, so as long as there is zinc, rust does not appear. However there may be environmental conditions that accelerate the oxidation processes: it is the case of areas with high concentration of salinity, typically near the sea. In these situations it is important to rinse the furniture with fresh water before storing it. Furthermore, it is highly recommended to further protect the steel with a special layer of zinc PRIMER which is applied before painting the color. This primer, which contains additional zinc and is very pasty and sealing, is ideal to close eventual microporosities and counteract the oxidation process. RD Italia furniture is made of metal, or rather pre-galvanized steel, and it is designed to guarantee extreme durability in any climatic condition thanks to the use of pre-galvanized metal sheets and pipes, coated with high thickness zinc.
