Free webinar arms engineers, designers and architects with expert knowledge on continuous galvanized sheeting and its practical applications

Following on from a very successful webinar on the Essentials of Galvanizing in July 2020, the African chapter of the International Zinc Association (IZA) has once again partnered with Creamer Media’s Engineering News to present a follow-up session, aptly titled Continuous Galvanizing, aimed at designers, engineers, architects and industry specifiers.

The free 90-minute webinar takes place on Wednesday 16 September 2020 at 15:00 (SAST). The session will address the following aspects of continuous galvanizing in detail:

  • What is continuous galvanized sheeting and how is it made
  • Where should continuous galvanized sheeting be used, with specific reference to real-world applications
  • How to specify continuous galvanized sheeting for various applications
  • What coatings are applied to the sheets and how does this prevent corrosion


There will also be ample opportunity for attendees to pose questions to the speakers and in the process the IZA hopes that the expert guidance given will encourage greater use of zinc coated continuously galvanized sheet in South Africa.

“The popularity of the first webinar highlighted to us that there is a keen interest among industry professionals to learn more about galvanizing, which is why we are hosting these sessions, and involving various experts, to empower more people to understand and embrace galvanizing as a cost-effective and sustainable means of preventing premature corrosion on projects in the construction, mining and structural steel industries,” says Simon Norton who heads up the Africa desk of the IZA.

Norton, an expert in corrosion and failure investigation, will be presenting, along with Martin van Leeuwen, director of technology and market development for the IZA, and Terry Smith, a foremost expert on hot dip and continuous galvanizing. Their combined experience and expertise is unrivalled in the industry and guarantees webinar participants will leave the session armed with relevant and practical information and insights that can easily be translated for real-world applications.
