The AGA has recently launched an update to our popular Inspection of Galvanized Steel App, available for free in both the Apple and Google Play stores. The App is a visual guide to identifying various surface conditions present after hot-dip galvanizing. Each image in the app is accompanied by text identifying the industry term for the surface appearance and detailing how and why it occurs, and whether or not it is accepted according to the specification. In addition to the visual interpretation of surface conditions, the App also contains critical specification (ASTM, ISO, AASHTO) information to assess compliance with coating thickness requirements as well as how to conduct repairs. 

The updated version of the app includes a design refresh to match the look of the new AGA website design, improvements to optimize the app for iOS and Android, new pages to address the difference between in-plant vs. field repairs, and incorporation of instructional videos from the Touch Up & Repair Video Series launched last year. Users can now play videos on repair requirements and material application from within the app as long as they are able to connect to the internet via Wi-Fi or cellular network. The rest of the app will continue to be accessible  at all times regardless of internet connection.

We hope these updates will continue to provide users with accurate information about the inspection of hot-dip galvanized steel.
