Galvanize It! Online Seminar

Designing for Hot-Dip Galvanizing


The Designing for Hot-Dip Galvanizing online Galvanize It! seminar was developed by the American Galvanizers Association (AGA) from the popular in-person seminar presented throughout North America. The course provides an overview of the hot-dip galvanizing process, ASTM specifications, design best practice, inspection, and preparing the galvanized surface for painting/powder coating.  

The AGA is a non-profit trade association dedicated to serving the needs of after-fabrication hot-dip galvanizers, fabricators, architects, engineers, and other specifiers. The AGA provides technical support on today's innovative applications and state-of-the-art technological developments in hot-dip galvanizing for corrosion control.
