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 is your kettle size?

Single-dip dimensions of 32’ (length) x 6’ (width) x 7’ (depth)

 

What are shipping/receiving hours?

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

 

What are turn-around/delivery times?

Turn-around times on customers’ materials are 5-7 business days (Monday Friday), 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, “Standard Specification for Zinc (Hot-Dip Galvanized) Coatings on Iron and Steel Products.” This specification covers 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, www.galvanizeit.org.

Where can I find more information on galvanizing?

The American Galvanizers Association has vast Knowledge Base where many questions can be answered.

Meet Gillis

gillis masthead.jpg

welcome back!

Gillis the Galvanizer was the galvanizing information man at Southern Galvanizing for many years. At some point, he left to pursue further enlightenment in the deep Himalayan mountains. There, he met with the mystical gurus of corrosion protection and durable coating systems. Now, he has returned with even more valuable resources to share.

In the coming months, Gillis will reveal relevant and timely truths about the galvanizing industry, hoping to help you achieve success with your galvanizing projects. He says he’s glad to be back, and we’re glad too - although we’d like him to take off the flowing robes and put on his hard hat!

For now, he wants to familiarize you with his home, Southern Galvanizing:
