Top 3 Reasons to use Allied’s Flo-Coat® In-line Galvanized Tube for Playgrounds
Superior Strength – Our in-line galvanized tube exhibits greater strength characteristics because of our cold process.
- Minimum yield strength of 50 ksi and 55 ksi tensile strength on all of our tubes wall thickness 15 gauge and heavier.
- Playground customers can now reduce gauges and still retain the same strength, reducing cost and weight of the product.
Unsurpassed Corrosion Protection – Our product demonstrates a longer service life because of the synergism created among the three coatings.
- First 99.99% pure zinc is applied followed by a conversion coating. Finishing the process is a clear organic topcoat that seals in the protection and produces a smooth shiny appearance.
- The inside diameter of our tube is a zinc-rich corrosion-resistant coating applied after the tube is welded, completely covering the interior.
Cost Savings and Reduced Lead Times – Allied’s in-line galvanized products eliminate extra processes and freight.
- You no longer have to prepare and ship back and forth to hot-dip galvanizers and wait for finished products.
- Reduce painting preparation, Flo-coat in-line tubing has a topcoat ready for painting or powder coating.
- You can also decide to eliminate painting with our heavier coated galvanized product Gatorshield®®,formulated with extra zinc for a prolonged service life in harsh environments.
