Hot-dip Galvanizing and AESS

Jessica Prosser, CTR
Business Development / Sales
DAAM GALVANIZING – Edmonton

Although not originally intended as an aesthetic finish, hot-dip galvanizing is now being specified with and AESS expectation to create artistic, durable and sustainable pieces. To maximize hot-dip galvanized appearance for AESS, a combination of ASTM standards and specific AESS practices are necessary. With that in mind, there are some misconceptions about the appearance of hot-dip galvanized steel that needs to be addressed prior to the design of the piece. Join me for a discussion on best practices for hot dip galvanizing and AESS.
