If you think about it, there’s really no reason not to get your steel supply hot dipped.
There are a lot of advantages to getting your steel pipes dipped and it’s a process that usually winds up saving you money in the long run. Let’s go through some of these advantages.
Long lasting – You can add life to your pipes by getting them hot dipped. Some pipes last longer than 70 years after galvanized when the pipes are used moderately. If content is constantly running through them, they will still last over 50 years.
Major protection – When you get your steel pipes hot dipped you’re getting total protection. A coating of steel or iron with zinc helps protect your batch from rusting. Zinc is a corrosion resistor. If the pipes are scratched or abraded, the pipe will still be protected because zinc is a sacrificial anode. This is something paint or other coatings can’t offer.
Ready for use – When we ship an order of hot dipped galvanized steel, they are ready to be used immediately. There is no prepping, painting or inspection. This saves the company money with project costs because the construction of the project takes less time to complete.
There are many more reasons to get your pipe supply galvanized, like reliability and low maintenance. If you’re thinking about getting your pipe supply hot dipped, then you’re making a good decision. Call on Florida Pipe and Steel and see how we can hot dip your pipes before we ship them off.
