Painting Over HDG
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...
Based on its maintenance-free durability for 75 years or more in most environments, hot-dip galvanized (HDG) steel has a lower economic cost and environmental impact than paint. It uses a healthy, abundant, and recyclable metal, zinc, to provide...
Life-cycle assessment (LCA) is the study of the environmental impact of a process or product, and includes measurement of energy consumed and all emissions during raw material production and manufacturing of the final product through use and...
Hot-dip galvanizing is a coating of naturally occurring zinc metallurgically bonded to steel to protect it from atmospheric corrosion for 75 years or more with no maintenance. The zinc coating of hot-dip galvanized steel corrodes at a very slow...
Zinc, commonly referred to worldwide as a healthy metal, is the 24th most abundant, naturally occurring element in the Earths crust. Zinc is present in various consumer, infrastructure, agriculture, and industrial products. In contrast to man-made...
Zinc, commonly referred to worldwide as a "healthy metal," is the 24th most abundant, naturally occurring element in the Earth's crust. Zinc is present in myriad consumer, infrastructure, agriculture, and industrial products. More importantly, zinc...
Project owners, designers, and architects have long recognized the structural and functional advantages of hot-dip galvanized steel. Increasingly, they are recognizing its environmental attributes, especially its high reclamation rate and recycled...
The Industrial Revolution dominated the 18th and 19th centuries, and many would argue, the 20th century brought about the technology revolution. Considering all of the world's advancements in the last 300 years, one must wonder what progress the...
