A. Two products I have found from different manufacturers that can help in this situation are called Everbrite and Corroseal. You can find them on the web.Henry Bowman

A. Hi Darin. Galvanizing isn't supposed to stay bright, so there's actually nothing "wrong" with it. But, as Henry says, some clear coat products may help. I'm not familiar with Corroseal, but Everbrite is a supporting advertiser and they suggest to look at the dull item when it's wet. If it looks good to you wet, the product can help deliver that look. If it doesn't look good wet, then it won't improve the look.
