Build to Last: Galvanize Our Infrastructure

Hot-dip galvanized (HDG) steel is long-lasting, durable, versatile, and sustainable. HDG steel can protect our infrastructure into the next century.

The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL) is a generational opportunity to improve the crumbling infrastructure with resilient and sustainable investment. Hot-dip galvanized steel is uniquely situated to provide longevity to ensure this generational investment will be enjoyed for generations to come.
