Specifiers willneed to take account of any sitespecific factors which may affect thecorrosion rate.Detailed data for individual sites andadvice on its interpretation (e.g. thepossible effects of a local micro-climate on the corrosion rateactually experienced by thegalvanized structure) is availablefrom Galvanizers Association.ZINC CORROSION RATESZinc corrosion rates are represented by fivecategories indicated by the colour codesshown below.

Further studies are planned to extend survey coverage in the Republic of Ireland. For areas not yet covered, the rates indicated for comparable areas may be used as an indication of likely corrosion rates.
