AGA to Host "Galvanize It! Duplex Systems" Webinar on October 17, 2018

October 10, 2018

CENTENNIAL, CO - The American Galvanizers Association (AGA) will host a “Galvanize It! Duplex Systems" webinar on Wednesday, October 17, 2018 at 1 p.m. ET.

The one-hour "Galvanize It! Duplex Systems" webinar provides an overview about hot-dip galvanized steel and the synergistic benefits when coated with a paint or powder coating on top. Webinar content includes an overview of hot-dip galvanizing and duplex systems as well as the benefits of duplex systems, specifying duplex systems, and preparing the HDG surface. This webinar will help specifiers understand the hot-dip galvanizing process and coating benefits, identify the benefits of utilizing paint/powder coating with hot-dip galvanizing in a duplex system, recognize the importance of communication and clear assignments of responsibility for a successful outcome, and differentiate between HDG surface conditions in order to properly prepare the zinc coating for a duplex system.

An outline of the webinar is available here. One hour of CEU, LU, or PDH will be awarded to participants.
