    What is Pre-painted Galvanized Iron and How to Use It?

    What is Galvanized Iron?

    Galvanised Iron (GI) is a metal alloy; either steel or iron, that has a layer of protective zinc coating applied to the surface to prevent rust. Prized for its protective steel properties in its zinc coated form, GI makes the perfect finished steel product for the industrial and construction industry. The most commonly used processing method, which we use here at Camasteel, is through hot-dip galvanizing.

    Length (m) * width (m) * thickness (mm) * density = (kg/pcs)is the ultimate formula for accurate measurement!

    To ease the process, we have listed the densities of metals commonly bought in coil and sheet form:

    Material Density (g/cm³)
    Steels 7.85
    Stainless steel 7.9
    Aluminum 2.7
    Iron 7.87
    Zinc-titanium 7.2
    Copper 8.93

    Density variations in painted, alloy, or coated steels are minute and can be disregarded. It is imperative that any end results arrived at via self-calculation or utilizing steel calculator tools online, should be considered estimations, rather than exact calculations.

    How do I know the weight of my coil?

    The approximate coil weight can be determined by measuring the Density (D), Thickness (T), along with the Outside (OD), and Inside Diameter (ID).

    What is the Difference Between PPGI and PPGL?

    The differences between PPGI and PPGL can be analyzed  with regards to substrates, durability, weight, appearance, features, applications and price:

    ● Features

    PPGI uses a galvanized steel substrate as base metal. These galvanized sheets have a layer of zinc coating. However, PPGL uses galvalume cold-rolled steel sheets as a substrate. Galvalume sheets for PPGL are coated in 55% aluminum, 43.3% zinc, and 1.6% silicon.

    PPGL sheets have a higher resistance against PPGI sheets, due to the dense layer of aluminum, which prevents the base metal from eroding.

    ● Appearance

    The surface of a PPGL sheet is smoother than PPGI sheets. This is because aluminum is more adhesive than zinc.

    ● Durability

    PPGL is 3x more durable than PPGI; AI-ZN coating in PPGL is more resistant to corrosion, in comparison to the ZN-rich in PPGI.

    ● Weight

    Due to the lesser weight of aluminum when compared to Zinc, PPGLs AI-ZN coating is lighter than PPGIs zinc coating. Although, AI-ZN coating can occupy 3% more space than the GI sheet, even with the same weight.

    ● Applications

    PPGI and PPGL can be used for industrial and commercial purposes, including; automobiles, wall paneling, roofing etc. However PPGL is more suitable for adverse outdoor environments, due to its high corrosion resistant features.

    ● Price

    PPGI sheets are 3%-11% lower in cost than PPGL sheets, due to varied, but minute reasons of process and material variance, durability and feature differences.

    Which Color-Coated Profile Sheet is Better, PPGI or PPGL?

    PPGI steel coil proves more aesthetically pleasing due to the color and smooth appearance. It is light in weight, making it cheaper and easier to transport, especially in bulk! PPGL on the other hand is more expensive but the product lasts longer.

    PPGL can also withstand up to 315 ℃ temperatures, due to the higher density aluminum coating. Book a quick consultation/take a look at our pricing breakdown page to see how we can customize the selection and distribution process for you!

  • What is I-Beam and How to Buy I-Beam?

    What is I-Beam?

    I-beam is a structural steel construction industry product with multiple uses. I-beam is also known as a universal beam (UB). It is a type of steel beam. Other types of steel beams are U-beam and H-beam and they differ from each other in terms of shape. I-beam has the shape of the letter I, U-beam has the shape of the letter U, and H-beam has the shape of the letter H.

    I-beam is made of structural steel and is often used in construction and civil engineering.

    What is I-Beam Used for?

    I-beam is a very useful steel product. Manufacturers use I-Beam worldwide as a unidirectional load bearer. The most popular uses of this product are in building structures and they are often used in structural steel construction industries. More uses are:

    • I-Beams play a key role as support members in structures.
    • They have to ability to withstand various kinds of loads.
    • They are most frequently used to form beams and columns in a number of dimensions.
    • They are used in the frames of buildings because they ensure a strong and supportive structure.
    • It is used in custom welding processes and metal fabrication.
    • Using I-beams saves time and money because their strength reduces the need of a large number of support structures.
    • I-beams are most efficient for unidirectional bending parallel to the web.
    • They can withstand different types of load and stresses without buckling.

    What is the typical I-Beam Strength?

    I-beam is able to support much weight because:

    • I-beam is a more efficient cross-section for a beam.
    • It is more stiff.
    • It is the only most efficient beam in unidirectional bending: up and down looking at the profile of the letter I.
    • I-beam bears the load of weight put on its flange because of its shape.
    • It bends under high stress instead of buckling. This structural quality makes it stronger than the others.

    Proper care and installation of I-beam needs to be taken into consideration in order to avoid any unwanted effects.

    How do you Manufacture I-Beam?

    In factories, I-beam is made by a hot-rolled molding method. In this method, pliable metal is forced through large rollers to flatten and mold it into the I shape. Hot rolled I-beams are made from metal that has been heated over 1000 degrees, to make it more malleable, and then rolled. Steel beam coping machines are used to make I-beams.

    How is Steel Made

    Steel is typically made by either using a blast furnace or an electric arc furnace. The blast furnace uses coal, ground up into a powder. The coal is cooked and turned into “coke”. The coke is then used to melt the iron ore. The electric arc furnace is a newer process. This way uses an electrical current to melt scrap steel and produce molten steel.

    Steel mill

    steel rolling mill

    Steel mills are an industrial plant for the purpose of manufacturing steel. There are various types of steel mills such as

    • Integrated steel mill
    • Specialty steel mill
    • Iron ore steel mill
    • Iron and steel scrap
    • Coke

     

    Is Steel Environmentally friendly?

    It is important to make sure that the environment is not negatively affected by production. At Camasteel, we strive to ensure that production follows all regulations for environmental safety. We strongly promote environmentally friendly steel production.

    Steel is a recyclable product and there has been confirmation of waste reduction in steel construction. This is mainly because steel products are tailored to the fit of a specific structure during a job. Therefore, there will be little waste of steel products if done correctly.

    electric arc furnace

    However, having eco-friendly production also depends on the technology. Blast furnace can be very polluting by dissolving carbon into iron or steel. Some modern technology, though, such as Electric Arc Furnace (EAF) have reduced polluting. Using EAF reduces carbon foot printing and is becoming more and more popular in the production of steel. Many companies are seeking a “go green” route with all of their systems.

     

    Overview of Steel Products

    Raw steel vs finished products of steel

    Raw steel is a product that is un-coated. This is more likely to rust. Finished products have coating on them for more protection and a cleaner look. Clear coat is a finish that still has the industrial look, but is protected by the coat that will last a very long time. Lastly, there is a zinc coat. This gives the steel a brighter and cleaner silver finish. This coating is sustainable for outdoor use.

    Popular steel products

    The most popular steel products being sold include

    • Structural Beams and Bars

     

    I beam
    • Piping and Tubing

     

    Seamless pipe

     

    Hot rolled steel plate

     

    Here at Camasteel, we are committed to helping our clients worldwide buy steel and hence are constantly updating relevant informative posts such as:

     

    Steel Prices

    Price of steel

    Steel prices have fluctuated over the years, but because of inflation have ultimately been increasing. The price of steel can change day by day and more drastic changes can occur in this market if there are natural disasters or demand changes.

    Global Steel Market

    Pricing of scrap steel have fluctuated. In early 2021 prices were around:

    • Copper wire = $2.66/lb
    • #1 Copper tubing = $2.50/lb
    • #2 Copper tubing = $2.35/lb
    • Insulated copper wire = $0.70/lb
    • Steel BX = $0.21/lb

    Trading of Steel

    Primary Financial Instruments for Trading Steel:

    1. Over the counter (OTC) – this involves a private contract between the trader and the client, but not in the same format of a standard contract. This offers traders an opportunity to use options and swap products in their trading. Since this is a private contract, it involves more risk than other contract options. An OTC can be made for an agreed upon grade or quantity of steel, but some other specifications may require a futures contract.
    2. Futures Contracts – steel can be traded on the Exchange. There is a contract that is a cash-settled contract. Each contract can account for a certain amount of steel in metric tons. The price of the contract is settled between the two parties based on the difference between the purchase price and the sales price.
    3. Steel ETFs – similar to the stock market, shares can be traded on exchanged for companies that produce steel.
    4. Contract for difference (CFD) – this allows speculation on prices of shares from steel producing companies. The value of a CFD is the difference between the price of the shares when purchased and current price. CFDs are also very risky.

     

    Steel regulation

    Regulations on buying steel

    Most regulations are put in place when companies are importing their steel. Typically, an import license is required to import steel and an export license is required when exporting steel. The specifics may differ for each country.

    Safety regulations in the steel industry

    grinding balls tested

    Before transporting the product, it is important that the steel is inspected and tested for quality assurance. There are different types of tests depending on the product. Products may be tested for

    • Hardness
    • Tension
    • Impact
    • Corrosion and wear resistance
    • Strength

     

    China Steel Industry

    China’s steel industry is growing more rapidly than most other countries and is now the largest contributor to the production of steel in the world. In the 1900s, the Chinese steel industry was very small. After the wars, China was behind compared to other countries productions. It wasn’t until the late 1900s that they had a rapid growth in their economy and their steel industry increased its output. It has continued to grow since.

    steel bundle import

    How much steel is imported from China?

    China is the world’s largest steel exporter. They export to over 200 countries/territories. In the last year, China has exported over 62 million metric tons of steel products.

    What factors caused China to expand the industrial production of iron and steel?

    This industry first expanded because of the demand in agriculture for the use of tools, in addition to the demand for weapons, buildings, and bridges. As time passed, the demand for iron and steel grew and China created the capacity for more steel production.

    Quality of Chinese steel

    China is currently working hard to make sure all of the steel they produced is of high quality. It is important for these Chinese companies to focus both on quality and quantity, not just quantity and price competition. This may result in capacity limits for steel producing companies.

     

    How to Buy Steel from China

    Steel Transport: Importing from China

    steel import containers

    Steel is typically transported by loading a truck using equipment that is safe for carrying heavy bundles of steel. It is secured properly before being shipped to its destination or a port to be shipped overseas for export.

    The most common ways to ship steel are:

    • Rail
    • Truck
    • Ship

     

    In different size bundles/containers such as:

    Type For what product?

    This is the most common method. The manufacturer first forces the steel through a piercing mill. Then a hot, solid, round billet pushes through the center to make the pipe hollow. The machine uses a piercing plug to create the hole.

    Extrusion Process

    Hot billets go through extrusion dies. Then, a metal bar in the machine, known as the mandrel, forms the billets. This forms the seamless pipes.

    How to transport seamless steel pipes?

    The pipes must be packaged and shipped carefully. This will prevent damage to the pipes. The pipes must also be sealed from too much moisture when packaging them in bundles, especially if they have a smaller diameter. This could cause the ends of the pipe to rust.

    Seamless steel pipes are typically exported by sea but can be transported in bundles by truck to job sites. A checking process occurs before the good is ready for export. In this process, a few things must be reviewed during packing and labeling. This may include breakage, security, excess weight, and proper identification markings. Another typical requirement for exporting is an export license.

    Where to Buy Seamless Steel Pipes?

    You may be able to find seamless steel pipes in small quantities in your area. But if you want to buy large quantities of seamless pipes, it is preferable to import directly from the manufacturers. They can issue certifications and provide cost savings which is better than buying the steel in small quantities locally or from a distributor.
