Factory Visit
Tour of Galvanizers Plants: Galvanizing Industry Open Day, 12th September 2017
Tours are offered at various locations across the UK and Ireland as part of the Galvanizing Industry Open Day on 12th September 2017. Contact the Galvanizers Association to book a tour and follow the production process where steelwork is coated with zinc. Plant visits give specifiers and fabricators an opportunity to learn how to extend and improve their use of galvanizing. The tour will take approximately 2 hours and will help attendees to:
- Understand the hot dip galvanizing process, handling, cleaning and galvanizing steelwork coming into the plant
- Understand issues around quality control, sustainability and the recycling of heat and waste
- Make more informed corrosion protection decisions
