​Sustainable Development

There is much more than steel at risk when you consider anything but galvanizing to protect the life of your structure. Metallic corrosion costs the North America economy almost $423 billion annually. For true sustainability, the steel must be coated to improve its durability. Hot-dip galvanizing is the process of metallurigcally bonding zinc to steel. Galvanized steel utilizes 100% naturally abundant zinc. The zinc used in hot dip galvanizing is infinitely recyclable and provides a maintenance free corrosion protection that lasts for decades.
