Galvanized Steel

Our A653 Galvanized Steel Sheets offer excellent corrosion resistance due to its galvanized coating and zinc contents. Because of its high corrosion resistance, it is a prefect option for outdoor projects. A653 has excellent weldability, moderate machinability, and cannot be heat treated. It is relatively inexpensive and holds magnetic properties making it perfect for magnetic photo and note boards, even dartboards. Our DIY Dartboard is the perfect gift for kids and adults. Get the full instructions to make your own Magnetic Metal Dartboard here.  It looks great in a bar or game areas, and because its made from galvanized steel, it works perfectly for outdoor spaces. Shop Galvanized Steel >
