Galvanized Steel Angle
Hot-dipped galvanized equal leg angles are excellent candidate for most processing techniques. Welding, torching, or abrasive sawing galvanized steel is not recommended without proper protection and adequate ventilation. Galvanized angles are A36 hot rolled steel, or mild steel, angles that have been dipped into a molten zinc coating process (ASTM A123). Hot-dipped galvanize (HDG) can be identified by its crystallization pattern, also known as “spangle” on the surface of the material. Galvanized angles have round or tapered edges. Great corrosion resistance, excellent candidate for outdoor use or exposed environments. Common applications include heating and cooling systems, mounting brackets, structural support, trailers and docks.
Most common type. Good welding, forming, & strength. Low cost structural steel.
