Did you know that corrosion costs the U.S economy over $300 billion each year? Environmental interaction with different types of metal can lead to gradual degradation of construction projects. To save yourself the headache of rusted parts, consider using galvanized steel. The galvanization process can protect steel from the elements, making it more durable and reliable.

Bushwick Metals offers the most comprehensive inventory of steel products! Take a look at our stock of galvanized steel angles and how we can help your business grow.

What Are Galvanized Steel Angles?

Galvanization is a process of coating metals, like steel, with a protective zinc layer. At Bushwick, we achieve this by immersing our structural-steel angles in a zinc bath. The zinc coating prevents the metal from rusting out, making it perfect for outdoor projects.

ASTM A123 Specification

We’re able to galvanize all our hot-rolled structural steel angles. Our products meet the requirements of the A123 Specification according to the American Society for Testing and Materials. The A123 Specification regulates the coating thickness, finish, and adherence conditions.

The Benefits of Galvanization

Our hot-dipped steel angles are especially useful in outdoor construction. Exposure to rain, wind, and snow will no longer be a problem because the zinc coating prevents rust. Other benefits of galvanized steel angles include:

  • Increased durability
  • Low cost
  • Higher savings
  • High reliability
  • Low maintenance

There are several methods to galvanize steel, including:

  • Hot-dipped
  • Galvannealing
  • Pre-galvanizing
  • Electrogalvanizing

At Bushwick Metals, we use the hot-dip method. This approach requires the structural-steel metal to take a quick bath in a tub of molten zinc. Hot-dipped galvanized metal is a speedy, simple process, which means faster delivery times for our clients!
