Navigating the many options for overcoating galvanized steel—for both protective and aesthetic purposes—will be the focus of a free upcoming webinar by SSPC and JPCL.

"Selection of Coatings over Galvanizing," to be held from 11 a.m. to noon ET July 17, will walk participants through the process of selecting coatings for use over galvanized steel.

Overcoating galvanizing
American Galvanizers Association

Participants will learn the steps for selecting coatings to use over galvanizing.

Participants may register here free.

What You'll Learn

Protective coatings are frequently applied over galvanized surfaces in harsh service environments to provide corrosion protection. Coatings are also used on aging and deteriorating galvanizing to restore corrosion protection to steel no longer fully protected by the sacrificial zinc (galvanized) layer.

This webinar will show participants how to:

  • Determine the service environment for the coating to be applied;
  • Determine the condition of the galvanized steel to be coated;
  • Select an appropriate coating or coating system based on the service environment and the steel's condition; and
  • Refer to ASTM D6386, Standard for Preparation of Zinc (Hot Dip Galvanized) Coated Iron and Steel Product and Hardware Surfaces for Painting for guidance regarding preparation of galvanized substrates before coating.
