Manufactured with quality BlueScope GALVABOND® coil, MECSPEC-GAL® offers a versatile alternative to imported products. Rolled to length and made with 300 grade steel, MECSPEC-GAL™ Pipe is hot-dipped zinc coated with a spangled surface.

Manufactured to AS 1450 standard, MECSPEC-GAL™ Pipe is suitable for general purpose mechanical applications, including; bench frames, box trailers, playgrounds, gym equipment, handrails, agricultural applications and more.

ADVANTAGES

  • Specialist tube mill produces a high quality product, backed by an Australian manufacturer who provides continuity of supply
  • Reduced lead times through an extensive local distribution network
  • BlueScope zinc coated steel coil and Orrcon Steel tubular manufacturing

COATING TECHNOLOGY

Achieving a minimum zinc coating thickness of 19 micron per side and is equivalent to ZB135/135 coating class as per AS/NZS 4792.

Coating has a spangled appearance and has a consistent and uniform thickness. Coating performance is guaranteed to maintain adhesion at a minimum 1t bend radius (180° bend along L-axis).

Extra-long term durability may be achieved when exposed to a low atmospheric corrosive environment.

The weight of the zinc coating provides medium term durability in medium to high atmospheric corrosive environments, such as protected coastal locations where surfaces are rain-washed to rinse off salt. 

Refer to AS/NZS2312.2 for further details.

WELDING

BlueScope steel coil to AS1397 confers guaranteed zinc-coating performance and steel weldability to group number 5, as per AS/NZS 1554.1.

Additional care is warranted when welding pre-galvanized zinc coatings to manage fume exposure and weld quality.
