Galco is Ireland’s largest hot dip galvanizer and has been proudly serving Irish industry for the last 50 years. With our headquarters in Dublin, we have 5 galvanizing facilities strategically located across the island of Ireland.
Hot Dip Galvanizing is the most sustainable and cost-effective form of corrosion protection for steel. Not only that, it projects steel from rust for more than 50 years in most environments. This allows us to design out costly and potentially dangerous maintenance programs and satisfy Health & Safety requirements for the future.
Many galvanized steel products are also painted with our Galvacoat paint system designed to adhere to galvanized steel. While most standard paints are intended for use on ferrous metals, Galvacoat® has been designed exclusively for use on non-ferrous metals, and can be applied in a single coating – without the need for special etch primers.
It adheres firmly to the galvanized surface and does not allow any salts to form, thus maximizing the adhesion and delivering a quality coating that can be typically expected to last for up to 15 years.
