Long Live Hot Dip GalvanizingBy Galvanizers Association of Australia
AS / NZS 2312, guide to the protection of structural steel against atmospheric corrosion by the use of protective coatings, originated in 1967 as a guide for steel designers who needed advice on methods for the corrosion protection of structural steel.
The last revision (2002) incorporated much information on the common methods of corrosion protection, including paint, hot dip galvanizing, thermal spray, powder coating and wrapping systems.
Unfortunately the complexity of designing and specifying protective paint systems meant that much of the useful information on hot dip galvanizing was lost in the detail of the other systems.
