Spanish term or phrase: cantos vivos y aberturas estrechas
Hola una vez más!

Tengo un problema con la traducción de esta oración que aparece en el texto Galvanizar en caliente/ Hot dip Galvanizing.
les copio el párrafo en donde aparece la oración a partir de la cual no sé cómo traducir:

COBERTURA COMPLETA
La inmersión de la pieza en el zinc hace que toda la superficie sea revestida (internas y externas), incluso cantos vivos y aberturas estrechas que con otros procesos seria imposible de acceder.
Sumado a esto la galvanización mantiene un espesor de revestimiento en los cantos y bordes que no ocurre con otros procesos.

Este es mi intento al comenzar el párrafo:

Complete coating
The immersion of a piece in zinc makes that the whole surface was coated (internal and external), even CANTOS VIVOS Y ABERTURAS ESTRECHAS QUE CON OTROS PROCESOS SERÍA IMPOSIBLE DE ACCEDER. SUMADO A ESTO LA GALVANIZACIÓN MANTIENE UN ESPESOR DE REVESTIMIENTO EN LOS CANTOS Y BORDES QUE NO OCURRE CON OTROS PROCESOS.

Muchas gracias por su ayuda! :-D

neutral  trnet: Michael, para mi el sentido de cantos "vivos" aquí es "sharp edges" (cantos agudos). :-)
