Rust Armor Protection Process
Hot-Dip Galvanized Coating

Every piece of steel used on Pro Dunk® basketball goals pass through a molten bath of zinc at a temperature of 860 degrees thoroughly coating them with a thick robust layer of zinc.
Durable Powder Coating

A special powder is sprayed onto components which chemically adheres to metal. Each piece is then baked forming a smooth hardened shell.
Stainless Steel Assembly

Stainless steel nuts, bolts and washers which are impervious to corrosion are used throughout assembly.

What is included in the Rust Armor package?

Galvanized Coating

Each part of your system will be dipped and coated in a galvanizing solution that will protect the raw steel from corrosive elements.

Every piece of steel used on Pro Dunk® basketball goals passes through a molten bath of zinc at a temperature of 860 degrees thoroughly coating them inside and out with a thick robust layer of zinc.

This process is commonly known as hot-dip galvanization and prevents corrosion by forming a physical barrier and by acting as a sacrificial anode.

The zinc coating reacts with oxygen, water molecules and carbon dioxide in the atmosphere to yield an impermeable, tenacious, insoluble layer of zinc carbonate.

This level of protection is similar to that of aluminum and stainless steels.

Stainless Steel Fasteners

All bolts, nuts and washers will be upgraded to stainless steel ensuring your system will look great forever and never weaken or seize up over time.

Untreated steel fasteners will be replaced with durable stainless steel to ensure your goal will remain structurally sound and reduce unsightly rust streaks forever.

Destructive corrosives such as road and costal salt will not weaken bolts, washers and nuts. They also make moving your system a snap! Never worry about rusty fasteners seizing up while disassembling and reassembling the system.
