Galvanized Steel Angle, is a A36 hot rolled, mild steel angle that has been hot dipped in a zinc rich galvanizing process. Galvanized angle is a lower cost alternative to stainless steel to achieve rust free protection for up to 30 years, while maintaining comparable strength with a durable hard surface coating. Galvanized angles can be cut, machined or welded by common methods used for regular steel, but adequate ventilation should be used to avoid inhalation of fumes when heated. Saw cut ends of our pre-cut lengths are not galvanized and should be treated with a cold galvanizing compound to maintain protection once your project is complete. Any holes drilled or welded areas should also be treated.
