Galvanized Steel Pipe vs. Black Steel Pipe

Today, we would like to get a clear for the different applications of galvanized steel pipe and black steel pipe.


Galvanized steel pipe features a protective zinc coating that helps prevent corrosion, rust, and the buildup of mineral deposits, thereby extending the pipe’s lifespan. Galvanized steel pipe is most commonly used in plumbing and other water-supply applications.

 
Black steel pipe features an all-over black finish. It is commonly used in fire sprinkler systems thanks to its high heat resistance. Black steel pipe is also popular for other water transfer applications, including potable water, as well as in gas lines.
