For the basis of a report in university, i have been given an assignment which involves discussing various surface treatments. Is galvanizing a surface treatment? Some sources refer to it as a surface coating because obviously it involves building up layers of zinc oxide.

Its a coating of zinc rather than zinc oxide.

Surface treatments presumably encompass techniques such as shot peening, where no other elements are added to the material. Galvanizing and other coating techniques are surely in a different class, but only your professors knows whether this assignment is to include them. You have to ask them to get the answer.
