 Galvanized Steel Tube

We supply tube that has been galvanized in-line on the tube mill as well as other methods of galvanizing.

Why galvanize a tube? - Putting a zinc coating on a steel tube provides protection for the steel against rust via an electrochemical process. The zinc sacrifices itself to protect the steel. Applying zinc to steel is the industry standard for achieving the maximum longevity of steel tube in a corrosive environment. The mode of failure of a poorly protected tube comes in one of the following forms…

  1. White Rust – This is formed when oxygen in the air combines with the zinc. It is a white powdery appearance and consumes the zinc when it is formed.
  2. Red Rust – This is formed when oxygen combines with the iron in steel. It is red and consumes the steel when it is formed.

There are several ways to apply zinc to a tube. Each of the ways has its own advantages and disadvantages. Tubular USA can supply tube coated in all of these ways…
