What's the difference between galvanized and stainless steel

What's the difference between galvanized and stainless steel

The concept of galvanized and stainless steel is different, galvanized is to prevent the surface of the steel plate from corrosion, prolong the service life, a layer of metal zinc coated on the surface of the steel plate; Stainless steel is resistant to air, steam, water and other weak corrosive medium and acid, alkali, salt and other chemical etched medium corrosion of steel, also known as stainless acid resistant steel.

Galvanizing refers to the surface of metal, alloy or other materials coated with a layer of zinc to play the role of beautiful, rust prevention and other surface treatment technology. The main method used is hot dip galvanizing.

Which is better, galvanized or stainless steel? Plating pipe and stainless steel pipe, mainly depends on the use of your use, stainless steel pipe is generally used for building industry, and plating pipe is a small building, applicable type is not the same, but more practical, you can choose according to their own needs.

Advantages and disadvantages of galvanized steel compared with stainless steel: zinc steel has corrosion resistance, strength enhancement, steel deformation is not easy to break and environmental protection performance, not easy to rust. It is suitable for some public environmental hardware facilities used in harsh environment (wet, acid and alkali indoor and outdoor environment), and if the surface is sprayed with color, it will make the adhesion strength higher, but the corrosion resistance disappears after the surface zinc layer is damaged. Stainless steel does not produce corrosion, pitting, corrosion or wear, can achieve the highest strength of the two, but the cost is also high, and not easy to weld. The biggest advantage of zinc steel is that it is cheap, the biggest disadvantage is that it is not resistant to corrosion.
