Basic 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.
