Metalplate Galvanizing is a long time member of AGA, the American Galvanizers Association. AGA is a powerful resource, offering training & various publications on hot-dip galvanizing.
To insure success on your project, get Metalplate involved as early as possible. The most successful projects have been those where Metalplate Galvanizing was consulted prior to the start of fabrication. Metalplate will offer or be amenable to meet with the Engineer, Contractor, and Fabricator. At that time, agreements should be finalized on the application of current standards, practices, conditions and/or allowable variations. Because of its potential influence on galvanized coating development, the selection of steel chemistry should also be discussed. Additional items that should be considered include:
In lieu of any other written agreements, Metalplate will galvanize to specifications and practices contained in the commonly used Hot-Dip Galvanizing ASTM Standards. These specifications & others are purchasable from http://www.astm.org
