The hot‐dip galvanizing process had its inception in the work carried out by a French chemist, P. J. Melouin, about the year 1742. The industrial application of a zinc coating to iron and steel articles by hot dipping dates back to the late 1830s, and galvanizing works are known to have existed in London and the Midlands at about that time. Though the industry is therefore one which has been established for a long time, it is by no means old‐fashioned in its outlook.
