Galvanised Steel

Scrappy’s buys and sells galvanised steel materials.

This includes galvanised roofing iron, galvanised purlins and building structure components to the by-products of the galvanising industry. Galvanised steel is reliable in coastal and city locations because of its resistance to chemical corrosion and resistant to extreme weather.

Typical examples for galvanised steel:

  • Tube
  • Air-conditioning ducts
  • Air-conditioning Panels
  • Meter Box
  • Trailers
  • Partitioning Systems
  • Cable Trays
  • Scaffolding
  • Planks
  • Rendering Mesh
  • Feeder Troughs
Can galvanised steel be recycled?

Galvanised Steel products are fully recyclable and Scrappy’s buys and recycles it every day. They manufacture modern steel from iron ore mixed with other substances to produce an alloy. Steel is 100% recyclable and can be recycled an infinite amount of times, saving energy and raw materials each time it is reprocessed. Most steel has around 20% recycled content already.

How do they galvanise steel?

Steel is hot-dipped in a zinc coating solution and becomes galvanised. This coating protects the steel from particle corrosion and general surface scratches and abrasions.

It is ideal for marine applications because the surfacing is resistant to sales and the weather. Galvanised Steel is appropriate for construction environments of up to 200 degrees celsius. The extent to which a sheet is galvanised is measured by the ‘weight per surface area’ of the zinc. In relation to workability, the list of capabilities for galvanised steel is extensive. The steel sheet can be punched (pierced), sheared, pressed, welded, drawn upon and bent into manipulation according to the project requirements.
