304 SS VS Galvanized Pipe

304 stainless steel is a stainless steel material with good corrosion resistance;

The galvanized pipe is made from carbon steel material and covered with a zinc layer after hot dip galvanized treatment on the surface to improve the corrosion resistance of the steel pipe.

From material comparison, obviously the corrosion resistance and high temperature resistance of 304 stainless steel both are much better than galvanized pipe, we can replace galvanized pipe with 304 stainless steel. The only advantage of galvanized is much cheaper and more widely used in constructions and traffic.


From the comparison, we can see that 304 stainless steel pipe bollards are gradually recognized and accepted by market with the advancement of technology and the improvement of economy because of special characteristics of the stainless steel material itself.

However, it is undeniable that galvanized pipes ever played a pivotal role in traffic management, road safety barrier, perimeter security and equipment protection.
