Galvanizing In Action: Capping Corrosion on Bridges with HDG Steel

by John Krzywicki, American Galvanizers Association

Hot-dip galvanizing, a process in which steel components are immersed in a molten bath to form a zinc protective coating, has been used for decades in industrial construction to provide a protective layer from corrosive elements. This article will highlight four bridge projects that employed galvani...

Industrial Cleaning and Coating Drones: A Look at What’s Coming in 2021

by Robert Dahlstrom, Apellix; and Michael Hindmarsh, AkzoNobel

Cleaning, coating and nondestructive testing at industrial sites requires extensive manual labor, often at heights, and drones can be used to perform some of these tasks while keeping workers safely on the ground. The authors discuss how nondestructive measurement drone capabilities have evolved ove...
