The Time to First Maintenance (TFM) Chart was developed from real world data and a corrosion prediction model, the Zinc Coating Life Predictor (ZCLP). The corrosion rate data was collected from galvanized steel samples exposed to the five defined...
Sustainable development is increasingly important to specifiers and the general public throughout the construction industry. Sustainable development is the social, economic, and environmental commitment to growth and development that meet the needs...
The fact is hot-dip galvanized steel is less expensive than paint. Empirical cost and performance data provided by the paint industry show initial and life-cycle galvanizing costs are lower. Additionally, time to the job site is shorter because...
A common exposure for hot-dip galvanized steel is partially or fully buried in soil. With more than 200 different types of soil identified in North America, hot-dip galvanizing's performance in soil is varied and hard to predict. The main factors...
Duplex systems, painting or powder coating over hot-dip galvanizing, have steadily grown in popularity over the last decade. Specifiers often utilize duplex systems on projects where corrosion protection is pertinent, but aesthetics, namely color...
