What are the advantages of using galvanized steel and aluminium pipes

Boss Steel is here for you every step of the way, from the beginning to the end of your project. Galvanized steel and aluminum pipes are two of the materials we provide, and they may be used in both domestic and industrial settings.

In essence, galvanized steel (GI) pipes are steel pipes that have undergone the chemical process of galvanization to get a zinc coating. The pipe is shielded against corrosion thanks to its covering. A wide variety of applications may be found for GI pipes, including plumbing (both residential and commercial) and many more.

Aluminum is a contemporary, efficient, and practical building and construction material because of its properties. The wide range of aluminum tube alloys has enabled more efficient and cost-effective manufacturing techniques. Breakthroughs in building and construction have been made possible because of the advancements in aluminum pipe manufacture, making the material more affordable and more versatile.


  • Anti-Rust: In contrast, if a steel pipe is used without any coating, the metal would rust when exposed to water and moisture in the air and oxygen. Galvanized steel pipes have a zinc coating on their outer layer, making them resistant to rust.
  • Durability: While galvanized steel pipes are more expensive than Mild steel pipe, in the long run, they are a superior option since MS Pipes will need to be replaced after a few years or months at the very best, but GI Pipes may last for 40 to 50 years under the same circumstances that MS Pipes are subjected to. Thus, the cost of maintenance is significantly decreased.
  • Temperature: GI Pipes, unlike PPRC pipes, can function with fluids at high temperatures and even in sub-zero temperatures.
  • Flexibility: galvanized steel pipes are bendable and can also be fabricated easily, making them ideal for various applications.


  • Flexibility: A wide range of industrial metalworking operations, including rolling, extrusion, forging, and casting, can readily be achieved using aluminum because of its unique mix of characteristics.
  • Lightweight: Aluminum's small weight makes it simpler to carry and handle on-site, making it more cost-effective.
  • Durability: Building materials constructed of aluminum are weatherproof, corrosion-resistant, and UV rays-resistant. This means that they may be used for many years before needing to be replaced or repaired.
  • Corrosive Resistance: Aluminum's natural oxide layer offers a protective barrier against the elements that wear other metals, such as sulfuric acid and sulfuric acid.
  • Recyclable: Aluminum is 100% recyclable and only requires 5% of the energy it takes to produce the original product to recycle. Almost 90% of the aluminum used in construction is reclaimed and reused.

Because of their remarkable properties, galvanized and aluminum pipes are ideal for implementing cutting-edge design concepts into any construction project.
