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.
Today, hot dipped galvanized pipe has been considered popular a lot among many users today. For one thing, the galvanization process protects the steel from rusting damage that can occur during transportation, installation and service. The zinc layer on the surface of pipe can form a barrier protection for steel products to extend the service life in applications. For the other thing, this layer is also resistant to wear and scratches, which makes the steel look more attractive. With the layer of protection, pipes can be used in outdoor areas, and can withstand the harm from some of the environmental effects. This special galvanized steel pipe is used in many outdoor applications such as fencing, fence posts and water-supply pipes.
Testing and studies have revealed that the average life expectancy for galvanized steel used as a typical structure material is well beyond 50 years in a rural environment and 20-25 years or more in an extreme urban or coastal setting. In that regard, contractors can confidently use this type of structural steel pipe in project. Technically, hot dipped galvanization has two-fold protective nature of the galvanized coating in use. As a barrier coating, it provides a tough, metallurgically bonded zinc coating that completely covers the steel surface and seals the steel from the corrosive action of the environment. Besides, zinc’s sacrificial behavior protects the steel, even where damage or a minor discontinuity in the coating occurs. Galvanized coatings have proven performance under numerous environmental conditions. The corrosion resistance of zinc coatings is determined primarily by the thickness of the coating but varies with the severity of environmental conditions.
Unlike other structural steel materials, hot dipped galvanized steel pipe is 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. If you choose hot dipped galvanized steel pipe for your application, you can avoid the cost of maintaining and replacing corroded pipes which will save you a lot of money in the project.
