What is Aluminized steel?
Aluminized steel is steel that has been hot-dip coated on both sides with aluminum-silicon alloy. This process assures a tight metallurgical bond between the steel sheet and its aluminum coating, producing a material with a unique combination of properties possessed neither by steel nor by aluminum alone. Aluminized steel shows a better behavior against corrosion and keeps the properties of the base material steel. Aluminized steel is commonly used for heat exchangers in residential furnaces, commercial rooftop HVAC units, automotive muffles, ovens, kitchen ranges, water heaters, fireplaces, barbecue burners, and baking pans. This steel is very useful for when heating something up because it heats up the substance faster than most other steels.
