    Environmental Product Declaration (EPD)

    The European General Galvanizers Association has published an Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) for ‘Batch Hot Dip Galvanizing of Steel Products to EN ISO 1461 – European Average’.

    The EPD has been generated under the International EPD System® based on Product Category Rules for Corrosion Protection of Fabricated Steel Products and is independently third-party verified in accordance with ISO 14025:2010 and EN 15804.

    Controlling liquid metal assisted cracking during galvanizing of constructional steelwork

    This guidance augments the basic guidance given in Clause 6.5.5 of EN ISO 14713 Part 2: 2009. Liquid metal assisted cracking (LMAC), or liquid metal embrittlement (LME), occurs when a combination of steel characteristics, fabrication detailing and galvanizing processing variables create conditions for brittle cracking of a steel article during galvanizing. Such a combination of factors rarely occurs in practice. For fabrications that might be susceptible to LMAC, it is recommended to follow the guidance contained in this document.

    Hot dip galvanizing to EN ISO 1461 and CE marking of structural steelwork to EN 1090

    Hot dip galvanizing to EN ISO 1461 and CE marking of structural steelwork to EN 1090. CE Marking for all construction products, covered by a harmonised European standard or conforming to a European Technical Assessment became mandatory from 1 July 2013. CE Marking for fabricated structural steelwork will come into force one year later – on 1 July 2014.

    Available in: English, French, Italian, Dutch and Swedish.

    Salt spray testing – why it should not be used to compare different types of coatings

    Salt spray testing – why it should not be used to compare different types of coatings. For users of protective coatings in the construction, manufacturing or engineering industry, there is one aspect of corrosion science that requires careful understanding – that is the role and limitations of accelerated corrosion testing.

    Galvanizing and Sustainable Construction: A Specifiers Guide

    EGGA has collaborated with Professor Tom Woolley – a well-known architect and environmental researcher – to publish ‘Galvanizing and Sustainable Construction: A Specifiers Guide’. This comprehensive book explains the economic, social and environmental aspects of batch galvanizing in the context of sustainable building.  The publication is also available in other European languages.
