Zinc galvanizing has covered extensive industrial fields from building a social overhead capital to a simple product such as manholes, and it plays an important role in the national safety. It, however, can be said that its range of usage in Korea is a little limited when comparing to that of other advanced countries and the public information is not well established in Korea. At present there is no more meaning of a border among countries in the viewpoints of standards and information exchange. It means that meeting the international standards for product quality and marketing strategy are seriously required.

Under the umbrella of Korea Galvanizers Association, 50 members are doing their best to achieve the association's aims as follows:

1) Information exchange among the members concerning about high quality and cost cut

2)  R & D activities by strengthening the relationships with other associations of the advanced countries and by participating in international conferences such as the Asian-Pacific General Galvanizing Conference and Inter Galva

3) Establishment of Environment friendly efforts to keep the earth clean
