Mild Steel Square Tube Galvanized is a square shaped tube of galvanized Mild Steel.
Hot-dip galvanizing is the process of coating iron or steel with a thin zinc layer, by passing the steel through a molten bath of zinc at a temperature of around 860 °F (460 °C). When exposed to the atmosphere, pure zinc reacts with oxygen to form zinc oxide. This further reacts with carbon dioxide to form zinc carbonate, a dull grey, fairly strong material that stops further corrosion in many circumstances, protecting the steel below from the elements.
Galvanized steel is widely used in applications where rust resistance is needed, and can be identified by the crystallization patterning on the surface (often called a “spangle”).
Mild steel square tube, also known as square hollow section (SHS), can be galvanized to provide additional corrosion resistance and durability. Galvanizing is a process of coating steel with a layer of zinc, which creates a protective barrier against rust and corrosion. Galvanized mild steel square tube is commonly used in various applications where protection against the elements is important, such as outdoor structures, fences, handrails, and other metal fabrications.
Galvanized mild steel square tube offers several advantages:
It’s important to note that galvanized mild steel square tube should be handled, cut, and welded using appropriate safety precautions and techniques, including proper ventilation, wearing appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE), and following relevant safety guidelines and regulations. Consultation with qualified engineers and construction professionals is recommended for the proper use of galvanized mild steel square tube in specific applications, and periodic inspection and maintenance should be performed to ensure the ongoing effectiveness of the galvanized coating.
