The hot dip galvanising process is a well‐established means of rust‐proofing iron and steel. In Western Europe 78,000 tons of zinc are used every year for galvanising sheet and strip. In the U.S.A., where galvanised sheet is widely used, the figure is 132,000 tons p.a. Galvanisers on both sides of the Atlantic can learn much from each other and last month about 200 experts from Britain, the Continent and America met at Oxford for an International Conference on Hot Dip Galvanising under the auspices of the Zinc Development Association. The subjects discussed ranged from the galvanising of wire to an incentive wages scheme for galvanising workers. Here are summaries of some outstanding papers.
