Presentation Title: 

Successful Detailing for Hot-Dip Galvanizing


Hot-dip galvanizing has been used to combat steel corrosion for over 100 years--but, of course, the specifications and best practices continue to evolve constantly as markets emerge and change. Batch hot-dip galvanizing is now specified to cover a variety of needs including corrosion protection, low initial cost, durability, longevity, availability, versatility, sustainability, and aesthetics. We'll review the most up-to-date steel design details and best practices to improve the quality and performance of hot-dip galvanized coatings, whether they're specified for long-term corrosion protection, painting or powder coating after hot-dip galvanizing, Architecturally Exposed Structural Steel (AESS), fireproofing, and more.
