Boss Easy Flo-Coat tube galvanized piping offers exceptional corrosion protection, thanks to three layers of protective coating. The conversion coat slows the growth of white rust and passesivates the zinc. Finally, a clear topcoat seals in the protection. In this article, we’ll explore the benefits of each type of coating.
Using the right coating for your piping can make the difference between long-lasting protection and rust-free pipes.
Boss Easy Flo-Coat process
Boss Easy patented Flo-Coat process for tube galvanizable steel provides long-lasting protection from corrosion and rust. Flo-Coat is applied to the tube by hot galvanizing it. The process is known as hot dip galvanization and utilizes a hot-dip zinc-aluminum-zinc alloy that possesses the highest corrosion resistance. This in-line process for tube galvanized steel tubing creates triple-layer corrosion protection. The resulting tubing exhibits improved strength and durability and a smooth finish. The Flo-Coat process is a cost-effective way to get a high-quality tube for your construction needs. It is durable, corrosion-resistant, and easy to install. Boss Easy also offers a wide range of coating options for your construction needs. Tube galvanized steel tubing is available in a variety of gauges and sizes. The Flo-Coat process applies a corrosion-resistant coating to the outside of the tube after it is welded. Unlike the traditional hot-dip galvanized process, Boss Easy Flo-Coat method is applied after welding. This prevents the pre-galvanized steel inside the tube from being re-metalized. The result is a smooth, shiny finish on the end product.
The Gatorshield galvanized steel tubing is manufactured using Boss Easy Tube & Conduit’s patented Flo-Coat technology. It features a triple layer of corrosion protection, a zinc coating on the exterior surface, a clear organic topcoat on the interior, and a polymer-based rust-resistant topcoat. In independent tests, this product has outperformed the competition in preventing corrosion. In laboratory tests, Gatorshield(r) structures have significantly higher rigidity than aluminum and are less prone to bowing and deflection. They are also significantly more resistant to everyday dents and dings than aluminum, and can carry more weight than their aluminum counterparts. The independent testing laboratory at Construction Research Laboratory, Inc., ranked Gatorshield(r) structures 30% higher in load-carrying capacity than their aluminum counterparts.
Boss Easy 50/55(r)
If you’re considering installing a metal roof on your building, you should consider Boss Easy 50/55(r), Flo-Coat tube galvanized tubing. This tubing is galvanized three times to provide superior corrosion protection. In addition to the zinc-based coating, this material is also available in an optional black finish, which adds additional protection against the elements. Gatorshield (Gatorshield) tubing is the industry standard for steel tubing. Its triple-layer design prevents corrosion and rust while remaining as strong and lightweight as regular Schedule 40 steel. It’s also available in rigid versions, as well as Gatorshield couplings and elbows. Boss Easy tubing is available in a variety of sizes and finishes to meet your specific needs.
Boss Easy 50/55(r), Flo-Coat tube galvanized sheet steel depends on eleven patented processes. These processes result in a superior corrosion-resistant coating, as well as added aesthetic value and long-lasting surface brightness. Once the tube has been galvanized, excess solution is removed and it is tried to prepare for the final protective coating bath. The final protective coating bath contains a clear organic polymer that provides added aesthetic appeal and long-lasting surface brightness. The polymer is then cured to produce a hard finish and a glossy end product. Because of its high durability and rustproof qualities, this polymer will not oxidize or flake off during fabrication.
Boss Easy 50/55(r) with Gatorshield(r)
Boss Easy 50/55(r), or “Gatorshield”, tube galvanized steel has superior rust and corrosion resistance. The triple-layer process incorporates zinc and chromate into a polymer coating and has become the standard of excellence for outdoor structures. Its uniform, bright surface resists rust and corrosion, unlike aluminum which turns a dark gray color with age. Compared to traditional hot-dip galvanized schedule 40 pipe, Boss Easy 50/55 with Gatorshield(r) tube and angle are a better choice. Both have a similar coating, but the surface asthetics and functional abilities are vastly different. Continuous In-line galvanized “triple-coated” tube/angle exhibits superior brightness and smoothness. Its surface gloss is maintained for extended periods.
