2018 NCCA Education Seminar & Plant Tour


NCCA Educationl Seminar

The fall’s educational offering will be on the galvanizing process and the chemistry, physics and engineering of metallic-coated steel, scheduled for Monday, Sept. 24. This seminar will be presented by Gary Dallin, an expert in this area, with 50 years of experience with galvanized and prepainted steel sheet products. He will cover the history of galvanizing from the early days of batch galvanizing, to today’s modern continuous galvanizing process. Gary will be discussing many of the common metallic-layer chemistries, such as hot-dipped galvanized steel, Galvalume®, Galvanneal, and the relatively new magnesium-modified metallic layer chemistry.


Steel Dynamics will be hosting a plant tour of its galvanizing line and paint line. The tour will precede the educational seminar on Monday. This is a must-see tour. Both lines are state-of-the-art and are housed in the same building, just a short walk from each other. The tour will consist of small groups of 5-10 individuals, each group with its own tour guide. There will be plenty of opportunity for attendees to learn the details of the processes and ask plenty of questions immediately as they come to mind.


NCCA intends this educational seminar to be a means of affording member company representatives who would not normally attend an NCCA meeting the opportunity to be placed in an environment with others to learn.
