Are you ready to use pre galvanized steel pipe for your project
Galvanized steel pipe generally has the rational cost effective in the current steel pipe market. Compared with other typical steel pipe coatings, such as specialized painting and powder coating, galvanization is much more labor-intensive, resulting in a higher initial cost for contractors. Besides, due to its durability and anti-corrosive properties, galvanized steel pipe can recycled and reused, which to some degree save a lot of money during the post maintenance work. If you choose a galvanized pipe, you can avoid the cost of maintaining and replacing corroded pipes. With galvanized pipe, your pipes can last a lot longer than a non galvanized one, which will save you a lot of money in the project.
Pre galvanized steel pipe is one popular type of galvanized steel pipe in the market today, which was galvanized while in sheet format, thus prior to further manufacturing. Pre-galvanization is also known as mill galvanized, due to the fact that the steel sheet is rolled through molten zinc. After the sheet is sent through the mill to be galvanized it is cut to size and recoiled. A specific thickness is applied to the entire sheet, for example pre-galvanized Z275 steel has a 275g per square meter zinc coating. One of the advantages which pre-galvanized steel has over hot dip galvanized steel is that it has a better appearance.
Unlike other structural steel materials, pre galvanized steel pipe used as structural steel pipe can be immediately ready for use when it is delivered. No additional preparation of the surface is required, no time-consuming inspections, additional painting or coatings are needed. Once the structure is assembled, contractors can immediately begin the next stage of construction without having to worry about the galvanized steel materials. With the layer of protection, pipes can be used in outdoor areas, and can withstand the harm from some of the environmental effects. Galvanized steel pipe is used in many outdoor applications such as fencing, fence posts and water-supply pipes.
Pre Galvanized pipes are manufactured through a coil/sheet that has undergone the galvanization process. Further galvanization is not required after the coil/ sheet has been manufactured to pipe steel section. These pipes and tubes have a high structural integrity and are resistant to corrosive environment. G.P Pipes & Tubes are manufactured as per ASTM standards. Pre galvanized steel pipes & tubes are manufactured from ½” to 8″. Square hollow sections and rectangular hollow sections are also available in pre galvanized finish. These pipes are generally used for fencing framework and indoor fabrication in truss work and grill work.
