We are pleased to announce that for a limited time we are now able to offer our online courses FREE of charge.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions we are unable to teach face-to-face at the moment, however, we do have our Corrosion and Coatings Technology course available on line with more courses in development. Please register your interest online or sign up to our mailing list to stay updated with which courses are available to study from home

Galvanising

This online course is designed to provide an introduction into galvanising and the galvanising process. The course describes the processes and methods currently in use in the steel industry as well as other sectors. It begins with an introduction into the steel substrate including the hot and cold rolling processes. This is followed with a thorough examination of the complete galvanising process, starting with seam welding, and working through to final coiling of the galvanised steel strip. Galvanising bath types are discussed, along with some of the challenges faced. The course then moves to describe mechanical and anisotropic properties, testing methods and techniques used in various sectors, i.e. bake hardening for automotive. The latter part of the course explains common defects and corrosion issues that can occasionally occur and concludes with a section on galvanised products and their applications.

Who should attend?

The course is aimed at Technical personnel, Engineers and Managers who wish to gain a more comprehensive understanding of the galvanising process along with improving their fundamental knowledge of galvanising in general. The course also includes current information on bath types, mechanical and anisotropic properties. Methods of testing and joining, common defects and corrosion along with information on galvanised products and applications.

Course Benefits
After completing this module, course delegates will be able to demonstrate an improved knowledge and increased understanding of galvanising in general along with a better understanding of the modern galvanising process. Armed with this new knowledge, delegates will be able to put into practice their enhanced understanding of galvanising upon return to their base location.
