We guarantee a minimum 50 ksi yield and 55 ksi tensile on many of our products with the ability to achieve even higher properties. Compared to Schedule 40 pipe at 30 ksi, Gatorshield provides a variety of higher strength alternatives.
Gatorshield is adapted for the specific use of your applications. Our tube is produced by specific wall thickness rather than 1/16 or schedule pipe designations. Gatorshield is demonstrative that strength is not represented by wall thickness alone, but rather by the appropriate combination of steel grade and yield/tensile properties, and our unique processing techniques.
Outstanding Corrosion Protection
Allied’s signature in-line galvanizing process exhibits superior corrosion resistance by utilizing a triple layer of protection. First a 99.99% pure zinc coating is applied to the surface, followed by a conversion coating. The process is completed by adding a clear organic topcoat that seals the surface and produces a smooth shiny finished product unique to Allied.
Exceptional corrosion protection is achieved by the collective performance of our three bonded coatings as compared to a single layer of zinc. Gatorshield was designed for critical long-lasting applications, and is ideal for outdoor or high-moisture environments.
Due to its 99.99% pure zinc coating; Gatorshield can be easily welded. Contrary to popular belief, all galvanized products do not perform the same with regards to welding suitability. Weld performance is an important feature of the Gatorshield product and one that has made it a success in several marketplaces for nearly 50 years.
Gatorshield is also capable of being fabricated using several different methods including hole punching, cutting, flattening, bending and more without the degradation of the coatings. All of these operations can be performed without cracking, flaking or otherwise damaging the integrity of the coating.
Custom Mill Lengths
There is nothing standard about our mill cut lengths. We produce the lengths that you require for your applications. Custom mill lengths from Allied allow you to minimize the scrap generated when having to cut standard lengths of pipe products.
