Remember the do’s and don’ts when storing galvanized steelwork in wet or humid conditions.

With the adverse weather upon us, it’s worth remembering the do’s and don’ts of how to store galvanized steelwork in wet or humid conditions.

Whilst the primary function of hot dip galvanizing is to protect the underlying steel from corrosion, aesthetics are still important to Premier Galvanizing, and to our clients. With this in mind, we’re sharing a document produced by the Galvanizers Association which gives some very helpful tips and advice on avoiding wet storage staining. The document includes the following:

  • How wet storage stains form
  • The effects of wet storage stains
  • Avoiding wet storage stains during storage and transport
  • Wet storage stain removal.

You can read the document here.

If you have any questions on this topic, please contact the Premier Galvanizing Technical Department. We’re always happy to help.
