American Galvanizers Association Galvanized Hot-Rolled Structural Steel Sections / galvanized-hot-rolled-structural-steel-sections

Hot-dip galvanizing is a proven corrosion protection system that transcends time with little economic or environmental impact. From artful sculptures and building facades to utilitarian bridges, utility poles, and other infrastructure, hot-dip galvanized steel is an important part of everyday life. Not only does hot-dip galvanizing provide decades of maintenance-free longevity, its primary components, zinc and steel, are both 100% recyclable, making hot-dip galvanizing an infinitely renewable building material. Sustainability and corrosion protection are intrinsic whenever hot-dip galvanized steel is used. Lower maintenance of installed HDG steel ensures less natural resources are consumed, less emissions are released, and less money is spent over the life of a project.
