Inspection of Galvanizing

Inspection of galvanized steel is often fraught with pre-conceived ideas born from paint systems.  Hot dip galvanizing is very different.  Hot dip galvanizing is a long term, hardy coating that has the primary function of protection against corrosion.  There are increasing enquiries related to the aesthetics of galvanizing.  If aesthetics are critical, then there needs to be comprehensive communication with the galvanizer to establish design and steel composition parameters.

See the inspection tool for explanations on various galvanized coating scenarios you may encounter.
