Cascadia Metals supplies Aluminized Steel products for a host of end-use applications. Aluminized Steel is carbon steel coated, through the hot-dip process, with an aluminum-silicon alloy. This process assures a tight metallurgical bond between the steel sheet and its aluminum coating, producing material with a unique combination of properties as compared to steel or aluminum alone.
Aluminized Steel can be made using a variety of processes, but the most effective process is hot dipping. The process of hot dipping starts by cleaning the steel, placing it in a bath of aluminum and silicone (Type 1) or aluminum only (Type 2), and then removing it, allowing the coated steel to air dry.
Type 1 and Type 2 Aluminized Steels can be used interchangeably in most applications. Cascadia Metals supplies Type 1 Aluminized Steel which contains approximately 90% aluminum and 10% silicon.
Improved Yield Strength & Structural Durability – maintains strength yet easily formed
Corrosion Resistance – highly resistant, especially during exposure to salts
Lower Cost – as compared to other high-alloy steels
Heat Resistance – ideal for use where heat is involved
Heat Transfer & Reflectivity – reflects up to 80% of heat projected onto it while maintaining its strength
Our Type 1 Aluminized Steel meets ASTM A463 requirements.
So you can rest assured our product will meet all standard specifications per ASTM.
Aluminized Steel, due to its inherent benefits, is commonly used in manufacturing mufflers, fireplaces, incinerators, heat inductors as well as other applications where heat resistance is required. Other applications of Aluminized Steel include corrugated roofing and siding, grain bins, drying ovens, and air-conditioner condenser housings.
