Galvanized sheet metal and plate are regularly used in applications where corrosion resistance is necessary. Flat galvanized sheet and plate are easy to drill, form and weld. They also provide a lifespan of 20 years or more, depending on the application. Additionally, galvanized sheet and plate offer a long service life at moderate temperatures.

Understanding the Galvanization Process

Galvanization is a manufacturing process that utilizes zinc to coat a flat piece of metal, resulting in galvanized steel sheet or galvanized steel plate. The galvanization process is commonly applied using a hot-dip method that protects and prevents corrosion and rusting. The galvanized zinc outer layer protects the substrate metal by acting as a barrier to corrosive elements; the outer zinc coating sacrifices itself to protect the inner steel, resulting in a long-lasting and high-quality steel product.

Galvanized Sheet Metal Gauge & Metal Thickness

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 vs Stainless Steel

Stainless steel offers increased strength and corrosion resistance for projects that require increased elemental protection. However, galvanized steel is the option of choice for applications that require increased ductility and ease of use.
