Super Strength 65
Allied's Super Strength 65 galvanized steel tubing has been developed exclusively for carports and other portable metal structures. This extremely strong, corrosion-resistant tubing gets its superior properties from our unique Flo-Coat® manufacturing process.
The Flo-Coat® Process
The Flo-Coat® process begins with high-carbon steel, cold-formed for extra strength and then high frequency welded. After welding, the tube passes through three coating baths - first, a layer of 99.9% pure zinc bonds to the tubing, and is followed by a conversion coating. The third coating is an application of clear organic polymer to "seal" the surface. This topcoat gives the tube long-lasting surface brightness in addition to superior corrosion resistance. The result is an exceptionally bright, attractive finish with unmatched strength and durability. The added strength is achieved by the cold-forming, then heating and quick cooling of the steel, which enhances the mechanical properties of the tubing. Super Strength 65 says it all - we guarantee our tubing has a minimum yield strength of 65,000 PSI. This is 30% stronger than our standard galvanized tube products. When compared to competitive pregalvanized tube, the difference is even greater! Pregalvanized tube products only advertise "target" yield strengths - not guaranteed minimums. This extra strength can allow you to use a lighter gauge product without sacrificing load considerations. That can mean big savings for you. See what a difference Super Strength tubing can make! With increased structural rigidity, greater load- carrying capacity and impact resistance, structures built with Super Strength 65 will be durable and attractive for years to come!
Super Strength 65 tubing is available in three sizes - 2-1/4" O.D. square, 13 & 15 gauge, and 2" x 3" rectangle tubing, 15 gauge. Other sizes will be added as the market demand warrants.
