What we can do for you

Based in the heart of the UK, Galvanizers Association (GA) has provided free authoritative information and advice on hot dip galvanizing to users and potential users since it was first established in 1949.

Over 95% of all steel galvanized in the UK and Ireland is processed by members of GA, whilst the Association itself fields a technical team of chemists, engineers, and metallurgists who advise on legislation, standards and specification. Galvanizers Association has been closely involved with the development of process standards at a European level and across the world.
