The paper describes the differences found in zinc coatings of galvanized pipes manufactured in the United States, Korea, and Australia. Zinc thickness and finish varied with the type of pipe. In an ongoing pilot study, these pipes are being exposed to water containing various concentrations of copper in order to determine whether the surface characteristics of these pipes have any correlation with pitting corrosion.
