What is a steel service center?
A steel service center buys steel products and holds the material in inventory until sold to a customer. Also, the steel service center will perform any processing the customer requests. Processing involves cutting services, shearing, plate cutting, drilling, punching, rolling, forming and delivery services.

What is hot-dip galvanizing?
Steel material that is immersed in a kettle of molten zinc. Resulting in a metallurgically bonded alloy coating that protects the steel from corrosion.

How does the cost of hot-dip galvanizing compare to other protection processing like painting?
The costs are about the same, however, the life cycle costs of maintenance is a lot lower.

How long can I expect a galvanized steel project to last?
Hot- dip galvanized material resists corrosion very well. It is not uncommon for galvanized steel to last more than 70 years.

What is the standard finish of stainless steel?
The standard finish off the shelf is categorized as mill finish. This is the least expensive finish. However, another standard finish is polished. Polish finishes are produced by mechanically abrading the surface with a series of fine abrasives or special rolling procedures that produce a mirror like appearance.
