Frequently Asked Questions

What is hot-dip galvanizing?

Hot-dip galvanizing is the metallurgical bonding (alloying) of zinc onto fabricated iron or steel by the immersion of the iron or steel into molten zinc. The galvanized coating provides both barrier and cathodic protection against corrosion, with an expected service life typically in excess of fifty years.

What are our shipping and receiving hours?

Our shipping and receiving department, with two dedicated forklift operators, operates Monday thru Friday, between 7:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. Off-hours receiving is available by appointment.

Can you provide or arrange for pickup and delivery?

Yes, we have relationships with several local, regional and national carriers and can arrange pickup and delivery anywhere in the continental United States (48 states). We can also accommodate international shipments from Canada, Mexico and beyond. Please contact one of our offices for more information.

What are your turn-around/delivery times?

Turn-around times on customers' materials are 3-5 days standard, with advance notice of delivery. Expedited service is available by appointment. Please call to call to confirm or pre-schedule deliveries when turn-around time is critical.

Is there a standard to which you galvanize?

We galvanize to ASTM A123, the Standard Specification for Zinc (Hot-Dip Galvanized) Coatings on Iron and Steel Products and ASTM A153, A153 is Standard Specification for Zinc Coating (Hot Dip) on Iron and Steel Hardware. These specifications cover coating thickness, finish appearance, and all other factors relevant to acceptable galvanizing practices.

How do I paint/powder coat over hot dip galvanizing?

The key to painting or powder-coating over hot-dip galvanizing is proper surface preparation. A comprehensive guide to painting over galvanizing is published by the American Galvanizers Association and can be downloaded from their website,
