"Sherardizing, or dry galvanizing as it is sometimes called, is a process whereby articles of iron or steel are rendered rust proof by applying a coating of zinc. The coating produced by this process is first an alloy with the underlying metal. After this alloying action is completed the outer layer of zinc is deposited. Briefly stated, this coating is not a pure layer of zinc, but a zinc iron alloy"--The History of Galvanizing, page 1.
