Company overview

Galvanizers Association is the source of free information and advice about hot dip galvanizing, cost effective corrosion protection and the galvanizing industry.

What we can do for you

We’ve been providing free authoritative information and advice on hot dip galvanizing since 1949.

Over 95% of all steel galvanized in the UK and Ireland is done by members of the Galvanizers Association, whilst the Association itself fields a technical team of chemists, engineers, and metallurgists who advise on legislation, standards and specification.

  • Free Technical Helpline – for queries about coating performance, what specification is required, standards compliance and design detailing, call +44 (0) 121 355 8838.
  • Free On-site Inspections checking for compliance against the relevant standards.
  • RIBA approved CPDs – we are recognised by the RIAI with our Structured CPDs. Our presentations are now available online. You can also book an office visit, depending on local restrictions.
  • Technical literature which covers a wide range of subjects including: applications, organic coatings, fasteners, design implications on galvanizing, welding, performance, case histories and sustainability.
