Design Considerations for Hot-Dip Galvanizing: Threaded Assemblies
Best design practice for corrosion protection suggests to avoid dissimilar metals in contact whenever possible. Zinc, used to coat hot-dip galvanized fasteners, sacrifices itself to protect nearly every other metal, diminishing its longevity. Therefore, to enhance corrosion protection, hot-dip galvanized fasteners are recommended for galvanized structural assemblies.

Understanding the Two-fold Protective Nature of Zinc
One of zinc’s greatest properties is its ability to protect steel from corrosion. For decades, zinc has played an integral role in safeguarding the core of our nation’s infrastructure—from the largest transmission towers to the most critical bridge and highway assets. Let’s learn a bit about the phenomenon of corrosion and the dual protection provided by the element.
5 Interesting Facts about Anodizing
The anodizing process provides effective corrosion protection – and maintains a colorful history.
Welding After Hot-Dip Galvanizing
All commonly practiced welding and cutting techniques can be used on galvanized steel (see American Welding Society’s [AWS] specification D – 19.0, Welding Zinc-Coated Steel). Welding on galvanized steel is usually necessary if the final structure is too large to be dipped in a galvanizing bath or for structures that must be welded in the field.
What is the Best Material for Utility Poles?
They’re a familiar sight – they line city blocks and country roads, carrying powerlines and serving utilities. Utility poles come in a variety of materials and designs, but what material actually provides the best combination of performance, cost, and environmental impact reduction?
