The most trusted name in painting galvanised steel

Galvacoat® is a tough, single application polyurethane topcoat that’s specifically formulated to adhere to non-ferrous metals such as zinc. It is a highly cost-effective and efficient galvanising paint system that delivers perfect adhesion to hot dip galvanised steel.

The origins of the product lie in the need to provide long-term protection for electricity transformer tanks, and from this single application, the product has grown to be the most trusted name in painting galvanised steel.

It is distributed by Wedge Group in Britain, Sperrin Galvanisers in Northern Ireland and the Galco group in the Republic of Ireland all of whom have over 40 years experience in the area of galvanized steel. Our own personal experience with Galvacoat® convinced us that this was quite simply the only product on the market which did what it said when it came to providing long-life, attractive and durable cover for galvanised steel applications.
