Mild Steel Angle Galvanised is an angle shaped galvanised Mild Steel.

Hot-dip galvanising is the process of coating iron or steel with a thin zinc layer, by passing the steel through a molten bath of zinc at a temperature of around 860 °F (460 °C). When exposed to the atmosphere, pure zinc reacts with oxygen to form zinc oxide, which further reacts with carbon dioxide to form zinc carbonate, a dull grey, fairly strong material that stops further corrosion in many circumstances, protecting the steel below from the elements.

Galvanised steel is widely used in applications where rust resistance is needed, and can be identified by the crystallization patterning on the surface (often called a “spangle”).

Additional Information

Engineering Steel Flat Keystock EN8 is a flat shaped keystock of EN8 Engineering Steel.

EN8 Engineering Steel is usually supplied untreated but can be supplied to order in the normalized or finally heat treated (quenched and tempered to “Q” or “R” properties for limiting ruling sections up to 63mm), which is adequate for a wide range of applications.

EN8 is a very popular grade of through-hardening medium carbon steel, which is readily machinable in any condition. (Refer to our machinability guide). EN8 is suitable for the manufacturing of parts such as general-purpose axles and shafts, gears, bolts and studs.
