Galvanized Steel Culvert

galvanized_steel_culvertWH Shurtleff’s galvanized steel culvert pipes are used in a number of popular applications. The process of hot-dip galvanizing is the most widely used and most economical metallic coating process for corrugated steel pipe. When you apply hot-dip galvanization it not only protects, but it also greatly extends CSPs life. In addition to forming a physical barrier against corrosion, the zinc coating sacrifices itself slowly by galvanic action to protect the base steel. This sacrificial action continues as long as any zinc remains. The design life of galvanized pipe installed in a corrosive environment can be extended by coating the pipe with asphalt.
