Though many designers are familiar with various types of corrosion protection systems, few realize the intrinsic value of using two in tandem. Duplex systems grant a project the protection of hot-dip galvanized steel, while allowing a desired color/aesthetic using paint or powder coating. Painting or powder-coating over galvanizing can greatly extend a project's life.
