Formulated for superior coating performance
To ensure the highest performance from galvanized steel, AZZ utilizes a proprietary formulation of molten metals. The GalvXtra® formulation has been field tested and proven to provide a more uniform coating and an enduring finish through the resistance of the reaction of deoxidized steel to the molten zinc. GalvXtra meets international ASTM quality standards A123, ASTM A153, and ASTM B6 for zinc coatings on ferrous materials.
AZZ’s environmentally friendly, proprietary galvanizing process does not emit volatile organic compounds or hazardous air pollutants, and the use of sustainable, 100% recyclable galvanized steel as a construction material qualifies as a green building practice eligible for certification points under the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) rating system.

Sometimes thought to be more cost prohibitive, at least initially, than other corrosion protection solutions, the American Galvanizers Association (AGA) has conducted a cost case study wherein the initial and lifecycle costs of hot-dip galvanized steel were compared to other methods. Let’s take a look at the findings.
