What is Galvanised Sheet?
Galvanised sheet steel is a robust and resilient sheet steel, which has a high resistance to weathering and corrosion. Coated with a layer of zinc, it provides a durable protective surface, which lasts for a long time.
What is Galvanised Sheet used for?
Galvanised Steel Sheets are used for a variety of uses including furniture, car bodies and chassis to improve longevity, galvanised baths and buckets, fencing and roofing, and much more as they are ideal for covering large areas and have good protective qualities.
How can I work with Galvanised Sheet?
Galvanised products can be machined and drilled. However this can remove the galvanised coating from around the area being drilled or cut. It is a good idea to treat any machined areas with Galvanised Aerosol Paint
, which is also available from metals4U. More information about working with galvanised products is available in our Technical Section, on the What is Mild Steel
- Good corrosion resistance
- Cost effective
- Usable in both outdoors and indoors
Painting of galvanised sheets is not necessary to provide additional protection. However for aesthetic purposes, galvanised products can be painted or powder-coated if desired. If you want to paint your galvanised sheet steel, we would recommend using a Direct to Galvanised Metal paint, which is available via our Hammerite Paints section.
How is galvanised sheet manufactured?
Galvanised Steel Sheets are made from durable, strong mild steel sheets, which are are hot-dipped into a bath of molten zinc at around 450 degrees celsius. The zinc adheres to the steel providing a protective layer on both sides of the sheet. This gives the sheets much better corrosion resistance than untreated steel and allows them to have much better durability against the elements, when compared with untreated mild steel sheet. This coating can deteriorate over time. The zinc provides protection by corroding before the steel underneath corrodes. Galvanised products can often be identified by a distinctive spangle pattern on the surface.
For a light-weight alternative, consider our aluminium sheet
which has excellent resistance to atmospheric corrosion. Or our strong stainless steel sheet
, which is supplied in different finishes and grades to suit your individual needs
