Galvanized Steel PipeGalvanized steel pipe is dipped into a protective zinc coating to protect the pipe from corrosion in wet environments. In addition, galvanized pipe is a lower-cost alternative to steel to achieve rust-free protection for up to 30 years, while maintaining comparable strength with a durable surface coating.
Galvanized Steel Pipe ApplicationsWhile galvanized pipe is known for its use in construction, its rust-protective coating makes it a preferrable metal option for automotive applications. Galvanized steel is an excellent material for corrosion-resistant fasteners.
Galvanized steel pipe is used in numerous types of industrial applications, including:
- General fabrication
- Lighting columns
- And more
Black Coated Steel PipeBlack coated steel pipe contains a dark-colored iron-oxide coating on its surface and is used for applications that do not require galvanization protection. Black steel pipe is used primarily for transporting water and gas in rural and urban areas and for conduits that protect electrical wiring and for delivering high-pressure steam and air.
Black Coated Steel Pipe ApplicationsBlack coated steel pipe is used in numerous types of industrial applications, including:
- Water & gas transportation
- Water wells
- Sewage systems
- And more
Galvanized Steel Pipe vs. Black Coated Steel PipeGalvanized steel pipe features a protective zinc coating that helps prevent corrosion, rust, and the buildup of mineral deposits, thereby extending the pipe’s lifespan. Galvanized steel pipe is commonly used in plumbing and other water-supply applications.
Black coated steel pipe features an all-over black finish. It is commonly used in fire sprinkler systems thanks to its high heat resistance. Black steel pipe is also popular for other water transfer applications, including potable water, as well as in gas lines.
Uncoated Steel PipeWe stock schedule 40 uncoated steel pipe, available in grade A and grade B options.
Spangle in Galvanized SteelWith an aesthetic coating, spangle appears as a snowflake-like or flower-shaped coating. Spangle variations include zero spangle, minimized spangle, normal spangle, and large spangle. Learn more about galvanized steel and spangle in our blog post.
