Aluminum galvanized galvanneal

Aluminum is a silvery-white, lightweight metal. It is soft and malleable and it is heat and corrosion resistant.  We carry 3001 and 5052 aluminum and can also work with 6061 when needed.

Galvanized steel is steel that has gone through a chemical process to keep it from corroding. The steel gets coated in layers of zinc oxide because this protective metal does not get rusty as easily. The coating also gives the steel a more durable, hard to scratch finish that many people find attractive. For countless outdoor, marine, or industrial applications, galvanized steel is an essential fabrication component.

Galvannealed steel is the result from the processes of galvanizing followed by annealing of sheet steel. Galvannealed steel is a matte uniform grey color, which can be easily painted. In comparison to galvanized steel  the coating is harder, and more brittle.
