Why Galvanizing

Creating exceptional material performance with seasoned expertise

The galvanizing process has been refined and enhanced over that last 200 years. It represents the absolute best way to protect steel and ensure long-lasting, corrosion-free performance. Less costly than materials such as stainless steel and aluminum, galvanized steel delivers a significantly lower life cycle cost and requires no appreciable coating maintenance once installed. 

A heavy footprint, except on the environment

In addition to being 100% recyclable, galvanized steel represents a sustainable material option that emits no volatile organic compounds or hazardous air pollutions in the treatment process. AZZ is committed to environmentally responsible operations, supporting LEED efforts through galvanized steel that contributes points toward certification. With 43 galvanizing locations throughout the U.S. and Canada, AZZ can help minimize transportation requirements while providing extensive resources available at the local level.
