The cold-forming process creates greater tensile strength than competitive product alternatives. The tube is welded prior to the application of coatings; the weld area is as protected from corrosion as the rest of the tube body. Flo-Coat ® tubing has greater corrosion resistance because of the synergism created between the coatings; the coating process enables the zinc to slow down the white rust process, and the clear topcoat then “seals in” the protection. The clear third coating also acts as a primer for painting or powder-coating. Allied’s galvanized products can be easily fabricated without deformation of the triple layer of protection. Competitive products tend to flake and chip during fabrication.
The Gatorshield® Advantage.
Strength- Compared to Schedule 40 pipe at 30 ksi, Gatorshield® provides a variety of higher strength alternatives.
Reduced Weight- Gatorshield® is produced by specific wall thickness rather than 1/16 or schedule pipe designations.
Outstanding Corrosion Protection- Allied’s signature in-line galvanizing process exhibits superior corrosion resistance by utilizing a triple layer of protection. Gatorshield® was designed for critical long-lasting applications and is ideal for outdoor or high-moisture environments.
Weld Friendliness- Due to its 99.99% pure zinc coating; Gatorshield® can be easily welded. Weld performance is an important feature of the Gatorshield® product and one that has made it a success in several marketplaces for nearly 50 years.
