RE: Floor grating

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I'm not sure what you mean by a "GI" finish (galvanized?), but carbon steel
will eventually corrode in a "highly corrosive" atmosphere. Coatings or
galvanizing will delay the onset of corrosion, but will eventually be
compromised.
