    Court galvanizing?

    I'm at work right now.

    About an hour ago, a young customer came and we talked about how scorching it got out there. During the conversation I asked if he worked outside. He said he works at a factory. And I'm not sure if I heard him right after that, but I think he said "court galvanizing" factory.

    I must've heard the galvanizing part correct. But if my knowledge of both words fall within that of normal people, you can't 'galvanize' a court.
    Have I heard him correct, and if I haven't, can you make a guess as to what he really said?

    Thank you very much.

    'Coat galvanizing'?--

    'galvanizing-- process of coating a metal, usually iron or steel, with a protective covering of zinc.'

    'Cold galvanizing'?--

    'Cold galvanizing of structural steel members, assemblies and metal fabrications is an equivalent to hot-dip galvanizing and repair of hot-dip galvanizing.'

    I think that 'cold galvanizing' is what your customer does, HKB.

    Re: Court galvanizing?

    Court Galvanizing is the name of the plant the gentleman works at. Court is the last name of the owner and they do Hot Dip Galvanizing. It is a process that uses molten zinc to provide a anti-corrosive coating for steel. There are other Hot Dip Galvanizers, but the man that you spoke to must work at that specific plant, and for that specific company.
