The Gatorshield Advantage
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.
