As it becomes more common to specify hot-dip galvanizing as the corrosion protection system for structural steel fabrications, it is essential to understand that considerations for galvanizing welded black steel or for welding on galvanized steel must be integrated into the overall structural fabrication design. This publication provides details on best-practice methods for welding both before and after galvanizing. Designed in 2012.
