From Coated Products
Aluminized Steel Type 1 is continuously hot dip coated on both sides with an aluminum/ silicon alloy coating. The hot dip process provides a tight metallurgical bond between the steel and the alloy coating. This process results in a material with the strength of steel plus the corrosion protection of aluminum, and the synergistic heat protection of an aluminum/silicon alloy. Aluminized Steel is used for a variety of applications that must withstand or reflect heat and resist corrosion cost-effectively, including such uses as water heaters, brooder reflectors, furnaces, dry kiln walls and doors, heat exchangers, drying ovens, home and industrial incinerators, space heaters, small appliances, ranges, major appliances and many others.
