At my work we've used them for at least 6 years. They're quick and do a good job. We have them galvanize tire hangers we put on tugboats that operate in salt water. The coating holds up very well.

Emerald specializes in galvanizing fabrications which are usually difficult and often not economical to produce for most galvanizers. We do all sizes & weights of fabrications, from structural to small parts such as screws, nuts, bolts, washers, and anchor chain (and anchors).  Chain and anchors are $1.35 per lb. Our minimum order is $149.00 for small parts, and $200 for anchors or chain.

Most small parts (including threaded parts) are run in our perforated buckets and then are centrifuged immediately after hot dip galvanizing. The centrifuge rapidly spins the buckets to remove excess zinc. This process keeps sharp edges from forming on fabrications and keeps bolt threads clean. This saves you labor charges to clean up parts.

Larger fabrications are wired up before lowering them into the kettle. Our cranes slowly lift fabrications out of molten zinc at an angle so that excess zinc runs off. Our galvanizing engineers and shop workers have been here over 18 years and are experts at performing difficult work.

Typical products we galvanize:
  • Brackets & Angle Clips
  • Rods, Bolts, Screws, Washers
  • Beams & Tubes, any length
  • Embedments & Pipes
  • Frames & Cover Plates
  • Rebar & Anchor Bolts
  • Gratings & Wire Forms
  • Chains & Anchors
  • Stampings & Castings
  • Angle & threaded rod

The minimum diameter for galvanizing fasteners is 3/8” and the minimum size for galvanizing wood screws is #18. Bolts and chains up to a Rockwell hardness grade of 40 are usually acceptable to galvanize. Call us for advice on other grades and to learn about coating thickness and smoothness, and ASTM requirements.

We are the only galvanizer in the West that hot dips anchor chain. We only galvanize up to 300 ft of chain at one time, if your chain is 3/8" or less. Chain over 3/8" will need to be cut in half so that we put less chain into our centrifuge on each run. The less chain we put through the process, the higher the quality. There is a maximum weight that can be centrifuged at one time.

There is more to know about galvanizing anchor chain. If we need to cut your chain, you can easily have one of our recommended shops re-link it for you at low cost, and transportation is free. We need 1 week in the off-season to do your chain, or 2 weeks in the Spring & Summer months. We encourage customers to bring their anchor chain to our shop in the Winter for the fastest service. 

About us: Emerald Galvanizing was formerly the North Branch of ACE Galvanizing prior to 2008. However, our dip process is still original and true to exactly what galvanizing engineers recommend. We use 100% pure special high grade zinc, and no additives so that you get the highest corrosion protection possible. 

We serve mainly: Seattle, Bellevue, Tacoma, Auburn, Marysville, Olympia, Portland, Spokane, Idaho, Montana, and Canada, but also Nationwide. No job is too big or too small. To learn more, please visit our main web site at: www.egalv.com
