PaintSquare will host a free webinar on Wednesday, Oct. 16 entitled: “Partially Galvanized Steel Columns—What Could Wash-ably Go Wrong?”

The columns in the case were used for an expansion at a petrochemical facility. The design had the lower column sections inside of an interior controlled environment.

These lower portions were not included in the hot-dip galvanizing process and received a standard shop primer for structural steel. The investigation and solutions to avoid such failures in the future are discussed.
