Core Galvanize It!
The Core Galvanize It! online seminar was developed by the American Galvanizers Association from the popular in-person seminar presented across North America. The course introduces you to the basics of hot-dip galvanized steel. For more than 100 years, hot-dip galvanizing has been a mainstay of North American industry. Used in myriad applications in some of the harshest environments, hot-dip galvanizing combats corrosion throughout the world. Though corrosion resistance is inherent any time galvanizing is used, more specifiers select hot-dip galvanizing now for other reasons including lowest initial and life-cycle cost, durability, longevity, versatility, sustainability, and aesthetics.
The American Galvanizers Association (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 todays innovative applications and state-of-the-art technological developments in hot-dip galvanizing for corrosion control.
