Galvanizers group revises concrete reinforcement references

In partnership with the International Zinc Association and 13 supporting operators, the American Galvanizers Association has overhauled the Galvanized Rebar website,, while releasing a companion market-focused brochure and launching a technical service center.

The responsive site harbors technical information related to specifying and designing with galvanized rebar, as well as performance and cost data. An FAQ section provides answers to many questions regarding galvanized rebar, while the Standards section provides an overview of global specifications for zinc-coated reinforcing steel. The site also features case studies of proven corrosion protection performance across the globe, including the New NY Bridge and Sydney Opera House.

The “Galvanized Rebar: It Works” brochure provides an overview of product performance in cast-in-place and precast concrete. Readers are provided galvanized rebar information and a gallery of cage installations. — American Galvanizers Association,
