I have worked with Emerald Galvanizing for almost 20 years. In that time they have become a trusted and valued vendor/partner of ours. We run a lot of parts through them and they are always able to help out when we run into a crunch. Their accounting person, Ann, is fantastic and always there to help. I highly recommend them as a valued supplier.

We've used Emerald Galvanizing over the past two years. Each time they are quick, reliable, and offer great customer service. Their billing department is full of wonderful personnel that will work with you as long as you keep the communication open. Would recommend 10/10!

We've worked with Emerald Galv for 11 years, they do small jobs and are able to take care of sandblasting when parts come to them rusty or painted or with mill lacquer on new black iron pipes. A one-stop shop, they have the expertise to know more about what is needed than a lot of their customers and they don't mind taking the time to talk to customers with small projects to ensure that their results meet or exceed customer needs. Thank you guys!

Emerald specializes in galvanizing smaller parts, hardware, and fabrications which are usually difficult and often not economical to galvanize in a large kettle. We also galvanize light to medium weight structural members and fabrications, and chain (and anchors). Chain and anchors are $1.10 per lb.

Most small parts (including all small 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. The centrifuge 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 usually wired or chained up before lowering them into the kettle for galvanizing. Our overhead cranes slowly lift these fabrications out of the molten zinc at an angle so that excess zinc runs off. Our galvanizers are experts and have been here over 15 years.

Typical types of products we galvanize include:
  • Brackets & Angle Clips
  • Fasteners: Rods, Bolts, Screws, Washers
  • Beams & Tubes
  • Embedments & Pipes
  • Frames & Cover Plates
  • Rebar & Anchor Bolts
  • Gratings & Wire Forms
  • Chains & Anchors
  • Stampings & Castings

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 our advice on other grades.

Calculate your own estimate on chain:
Emerald charges $1.10 per lb. for galvanizing chain. It's the same price for anchors. We only galvanize up to 300 ft. 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 at one time. The less chain we put through the process, the higher the quality. 

We can cut your chain for you, and refer you to a steel shop that can re-link it for you with a galvanized link.
