Galvanized steel plate or sheet is used for a variety of projects including furniture, car panels, general fabrication, and much more as it is ideal for covering large areas with good protective qualities. This grade of steel also has excellent machinability and good formability properties.
Also known as plate, galvanized steel sheets are perfect for use in roofing projects. Seen as a more customizable option to corrugated metal, our carbon steel sheets are hot dipped in zinc to ISO standards for added protection against the elements.
This galvanizing process makes the mild steel sheets perfect for use in outdoor projects like industrial units, residential buildings, and more temporary structures like outbuildings. The hardwearing properties of the material make it a perfect longer-term solution for works that require fortification from the wind and rain. view more about GALVANIZED STEEL
Galvanized Steel Plate & Sheet
Through addition of certain heavy metal element into molten zinc bath, regular spangle pattern is produced on Hot-dip zinc-coated steel sheet.
The zinc layer(coating) does Not contain Lead(Pb), which complies with EU WEEE and RoHS directives. This is a non-toxic and environmental friendly material.
During hot-dip galvanizing, only a certain amount of aluminum is added to the zinc solution, and lead-free, antimony, and tin are not added to produce spangle-free products.
A gauge is used to measure sheet metal thickness. A smaller gauge number reflects a thicker sheet metal— standard gauge numbers for steel range from 7 through 28. Regardless of your fabrication needs, the importance of choosing the correct metal gauge for your application cannot be overlooked. Choosing a gauge that is thicker and more resistant to fabrication can adversely affect your projects.
Galvanized steel plate can be classified based on several factors, including:
Coating weight: Galvanized steel is typically classified based on the weight of the zinc coating applied to the steel. The most common coating weights are G90 and G60, which refer to the amount of zinc coating per square foot of steel.
Coating type: Galvanized steel can be classified based on the type of coating applied. Hot-dip galvanized steel is the most common type, in which the steel is dipped into a bath of molten zinc to create a coating. Electro-galvanized steel is another type, in which the steel is coated with zinc through an electroplating process.
Steel grade: Galvanized steel can also be classified based on the grade of steel used. Common grades include ASTM A653 and ASTM A36, among others.
Surface finish: Galvanized steel can have different surface finishes, such as spangle or no spangle. The spangle refers to the visible crystalline structure on the surface of the steel, which can be classified as regular, minimized, or zero spangle.
