Hot-Dipped Galvanized Steel is produced by running a cold rolled substrate through a molten bath of zinc. Typically, it is used in applications where corrosion resistance is a necessity such as building panels, farm equipment, electronic equipment, and ductwork.
Hot-dipped galvanized steel is available in gauges ranging from .0142 to .070 (our limit), grades ranging from EDDS to CS type B to High Strength Low Alloy, coating weights of G-40 (.10oz/ft² total both sides) to G-210 (2.10 oz/ft² total both sides), and is available in finishes from no spangle to regular spangle.
Electrogalvanized ASTM A879
Electrogalvanized steel is produced by applying zinc to the surface of the cold rolled substrate through an electroplating process. It is typically used in applications where some degree of corrosion resistance is required, such as in automobile fenders and cable converter boxes.
Electrogalvanized is available in gauges ranging from .0142 to .070 (our limit), grades ranging from EDDS to CS type B, and coating weights of 3.8 g/m² per side to 60 g/m² per side.
