Galvalume steel refers to 55% Al-Zn coated sheet steel product, which is well suited for roofing and siding applications, as well as automotive, home appliances, furniture, etc. Due to its versatility, durability, beautiful appearance, galvalume steel coils and sheets are favored broadly. If you are looking for information on galvalume steel (GL), please contact Wanzhi Steel right now.
Wanzhi Steel has both GL coils and sheets for sale, as well as PPGL steel coils and sheets. More than that, we also offer custom solutions to meet special requirements. Welcome to contact us for samples or visit our factory on site.
As shown above, the common types of GL steel include galvalume coil, galvalume corrugated sheet, and galvalume plain sheet. Thanks to its shiny spangled appearance, GL steel can be used as exterior panels without a layer of paint. Wanzhi Steel offers GL steel is of 0.2-4 mm in thickness and 600-2,000 mm in width. Besides, the weight of GL steel coil and the length of the flat sheet can be customized on the basis of your needs. Please talk to us for more details.
Similar to galvanized steel, the Al-Zn coating will protect the base metal. Especially, when the zinc layer is worn, there will be a layer of dense alumina to prevent the base metal from further corrosion. It is proved that GL steel will serve 3 times longer than GI steel does. That’s why GL steel is preferred in severe environments.
Aluminum-zinc coated steel has good heat resistance to withstand temperatures of more than 300 degrees Celsius, which is often used in chimney pipes, oven illuminators, and lampshades.
The thermal reflectivity of GL is twice of galvanized steel’s so that it is often used as a heat-insulating material. So it is a better choice for roofing in the hot climate.
The surface of GL steel is smooth and with spangles, which makes it good-looking. So it can be used directly without painting.
1. Construction Industry, for example, roofing, interior and exterior wall panels, soundproof wall, pipe, garage, etc.
2. Automobile Industry, such as muffler, exhaust pipe, wiper attachment, fuel tank, truck containers, etc.
3. Home Appliances, for instance, refrigerator backboard, air conditioner, microwave oven, LED backlight, electric cabinet, etc.
4. Agricultural Uses, like greenhouse, granary, piggery, chicken house, etc.
5. Other Industries, such as heat exchanger, dryer, etc.
Galvalume steel is similar to galvanized steel. While galvalume coating consists of 55% zinc, aluminum, and silicon to protect steel from oxidation. Due to the protection of aluminum, it is better able to resist rusting and corrosion. If the coating thicknesses of GL steel and GI steel are equal, the GL one will be more long-lasting to use in the same environment. The common manufacturing process is known as the hot-dipping process. Let’s review step by step.
Through the pre-treatment system, the contaminants on the surface of the base metal will be removed. It often includes degreasing, rinsing, pickling, etc.
2. Hot-dip Galvalume Process
After going through the annealing furnace, steel sheets are dipped into the Al-Zn pool. Then there is an air knife to remove the extra coating to keep the thickness of the coating.
3. Inspection & Coiling
The coated steel sheet will go through the quality control system and then be rolled up for sale.
So the structure of Galvalume steel includes:
You can also check the videos of the manufacturing process through videos.
In comparison, the galvalume sheet price will be higher than that of GI sheets. It is because of its great properties. Besides, the number of galvalume sheet manufacturers is less. Commonly, the price starts from $ 600 per ton. And the galvalume coil price keeps rising in recent months. Please contact us for the latest price.
