AGA Inspection of Galvanized Steel App

Screenshot 20180626 140202

The AGA has created a comprehensive app to aid in the inspection of hot-dip galvanized steel. The app is a visual guide to identifying various surface conditions present after hot-dip galvanizing. Each image in the app is accompanied by text identifying the industry term for the surface appearance and detailing how and why it occurs, and whether or not it is accepted according to the specification. In addition to the visual interpretation of surface conditions, the app also contains critical specification (ASTM, ISO, AASHTO) information to assess compliance with coating thickness requirements as well as how to conduct repairs.

The app is available for free in both the Apple and Google Play stores.
