The Metallurgy of Zinc Coated Steels provides a comprehensive overview of the science and engineering of zinc coatings. Beginning with a look at new innovations made in the hot-dip coating methods (CGL), the book goes on to discuss phase equilibria, Zn bath phenomena and overlay coating formations. Both processing methods and controls are covered, as well as corrosion resistance and coating product properties. The book concludes with a discussion of future opportunities for zinc coatings. This book is a vital resource for both individuals new to this area while also serving as a handbook for users and producers of zinc coatings.

About the Authors

Arnold Marder

Dr. Arnold R. Marder, the R.D. Stout Distinguished Emeritus Professor of Materials Science and Engineering at Lehigh University, received his B.S. and M.S. in Metallurgical Engineering from the Polytechnic Institute of Brooklyn and his Ph.D. in Materials Science and Metallurgy from Lehigh University. Elected a Fellow of ASM International in 1990, Dr. Marder had 25 years of industrial research experience working on corrosion resistant coatings, electrical steels, and alloy development before joining Lehigh University in 1986 as the Associate Director of the Energy Research Center. In 1991 he was appointed Professor in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering. He received the prestigious ASM Lehigh Valley Bradley Stoughton Award in 2000 and has been recognized by ASTM and the American Welding Society with several honors including the AWS Sparagen, Davis and McKay-Helm Awards and the ASTM Villela Awards. His expertise is concentrated in physical metallurgy and properties of metals, in particular: (1) hot dip coatings, (2) steel alloys, (3) aqueous and high temperature corrosion and coatings, (4) welding processes, (5) failure analysis and (6) electrical steels. He has enjoyed worldwide support of his steel alloy and coatings work from a large number of industrial sponsors as well as government agency support from the Department of Energy and the Office of Naval Research. He presently serves as a consultant in intellectual property and is involved in international patent litigation, primarily in zinc coatings.

Frank Goodwin

Dr. Frank Goodwin has been active as an independent consultant on issues related to zinc production, downstream processing and use. Before this he served as Director of Technology and Market Development at International Zinc Association. Dr Goodwin joined International Lead Zinc Research Organization (ILZRO) in 1982 and was Executive Vice President of ILZRO at the time of merger between ILZRO and IZA in 2004. He earned his S.M. and Sc.D. degrees in Materials Engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Cambridge, MA together with a B.S. degree (with distinction) in Materials Science and Engineering from Cornell University, Ithaca, NY. His service to the steel industry includes chairmanship of the global Galvatech conference series and founding chairman of the AIST Galvanizing Technology Committee for which he continues to serve as Papers Co-Chair. His awards include the Nyselius Award of North American Die Casting Association, the Nevison Award from the Galvanizers Association (USA), the EGGA Pin from the European General Galvanizers Association, Life Membership in Wire Association International and the American Galvanizers Association Hall of Fame. His work has emphasized the continuous improvement of the engineering science platform upon which many advances in this industry are based. In 1999 Dr. Goodwin founded the Galvanized Autobody Partnership (GAP), which he continues to manage. GAP program members include most of the world’s leading steel and zinc producers together with several automobile producers and suppliers and has provided $27 million of support for 67 research projects at universities and industrial laboratories globally. Dr. Goodwin has 6 patents and has published 79 peer-reviewed journal articles, 354 papers in conference proceedings, 23 book chapters or manuals and 55 other articles.
