Recognizing the special skills and efforts of galvanizers
Every year the American Galvanizers Association (AGA) recognizes outstanding applications of hot-dip galvanizing (HDG) with their Excellence in Hot-Dip Galvanizing Awards.
Click the below links to view examples of AZZ’s numerous AGA award-winning entries:
Aggregate Recycling Plant
The plant, located in the Middle East, is designed to recycle concrete products. The facility is subjected to constant UV rays, 120 degree plus heat, sand storms, as well as the abrasive conditions created by an aggregate crusher.
Aggregate Screening Plant
Located in the harsh environment of a limestone quarry, the aggregate screening plant must withstand constant bombardment of small and large pieces of limestone rocks.
It is a dirty job, but somebody has got to do it. A tough, hardy little powerhouse, the dredge works up and down the Mississippi River on the east bank to provide access to the cruise terminals.
Greenhouse Water and Irrigation System
The greenhouse was a perfect candidate for the use of hot-dip galvanized (HDG) steel. Since the plants grown in the greenhouse require routine watering, the tenacious, water-resistant coating that forms from the zinc patina protects the steel from the corrosive, wet environment.
Spanning eleven active railroad tracks, the oil bridge needs durable protection from the rough, corrosive industrial environment of the railway system.
Public Parking Garage
A duplex system was specifically chosen to offer not only years of care-free maintenance, but also attractive aesthetics that the client could choose to fit their color scheme.
The fabricator understands the harsh environment of an underground limestone mine and knows that hot-dip galvanizing (HDG) is the ultimate coating for this environment.
With scores of silver seating rows spanning far into the distance, racetracks are cherished attractions for any community. Rust from corrosion only dulls the city’s charm. For decades, the only corrosion protection used to protect the massive collection of steel used in this structure was paint.

The zero maintenance factor of hot dip galvanized steel and the economic savings it delivers year after year were drivers for this stadium project. Basic paint simply would not do justice to a stadium of this caliber.
