Recent Trends in Galvanizing
“Hot dip galvanizing has long been used and is a well proven method of providing corrosion protection to iron and steel. Whilst the process itself is long established its use as a protective coating is mostly seen as being more functional than decorative. Trends in Europe and more recently in Australia have seen the coating employed for its metallic appearance.” M Wright, Industrial Galvanizers Corporation 1999
