The article reports on the goal of Joe Langemeier, Southern operations marketing manager for AZZ galvanizing Services in Texas, to increase awareness of galvanizing benefits to farms. He states that galvanizing offers a barrier of zinc crystals developed in the steel, which fuse in the steel in an abrasion-resistant set of compounds. He adds that if farming equipment was all hot-dipped to begin with, it would last longer, and farmers would not essentially anticipate having to repaint it.
