Advantages of CONSNANT Outdoor Cabinet

一. Material comparison

1. Galvanized sheet:

Galvanized sheet is made by coating the surface of steel with a layer of zinc and then processing it. The steel base material can be cold-rolled plate, hot-rolled plate, electroplated plate, aluminum-magnesium alloy plate, etc., which can be selected according to specific circumstances.

2. Cold rolled plate:

Cold rolled plate means that the raw materials do not need to be heated during the processing and are produced directly through cold rolling. Its main material is Q195, Q215, Q235 and other carbon steel plates.

3. Stainless steel:

Stainless steel is the abbreviation of stainless acid-resistant steel, which is resistant to air, steam, water and other weak corrosive media or stainless steel. Steel types that are resistant to chemical corrosion media (chemical corrosion such as acids, alkali, salts, etc.) are called acid-resistant steel. The most commonly used materials are divided into three types, 201 ordinary stainless steel, 304 food grade stainless steel, and 316 medical grade stainless steel.

 

二. Performance comparison

1. Galvanized sheet:

Advantages: It has good corrosion resistance, the surface is smooth and beautiful, and it is not easy to pollute. It is suitable for use in outdoor environments and can effectively extend the service life of the product. It also has good processability and weldability characteristics.

Disadvantages: The galvanized layer is relatively thin and has relatively poor corrosion resistance; the zinc layer is prone to peeling off at high temperatures, affecting its use.

2. Cold rolled plate:

Advantages: good molding properties, low thermal expansion coefficient, good dimensional stability, high wear resistance and compressive strength.

Disadvantages: The surface is prone to produce contaminants such as iron oxide scale, resulting in a rough surface, which is not suitable for outdoor environments and requires anti-rust treatment.

3. Stainless steel:

Advantages: high aesthetics, corrosion resistance, easy to form, and good physical properties.

Disadvantages: higher cost; lower heat resistance. For example, the surface of the stainless steel plate is uncoated, and heat conducts quickly, resulting in high temperatures in outdoor cabinets in summer (air conditioning can be optional depending on the application environment).

 

三. Comparison of uses

1. Galvanized sheet:

Suitable for exterior wall decoration, metal doors and windows, garages, air ducts, anti-corrosion packaging and other fields. It is also widely used in chemical industry, construction industry, metallurgical industry and other related industries.

2. Cold rolled plate:

Suitable for manufacturing automobile parts, electrical equipment, cooling equipment, mechanical equipment and other fields. It is also widely used in the construction industry, electric power industry, instrumentation and other related industries.

3. Stainless steel:

Suitable for various mechanical equipment, machinery manufacturing, medical treatment, metal products and other fields. It is also widely used in the electric power industry, automobile industry, chemical industry, construction industry, metallurgical industry and other related industries.

 

To sum up, if you need to use materials in outdoor environments, it is recommended to choose galvanized sheets (or stainless steel), which have good corrosion resistance; if you have higher requirements for surface accuracy and flatness, it is recommended to choose cold-rolled sheets, which have good corrosion resistance. Good processing performance and molding performance. In specific use cases, selection needs to be made based on actual conditions.

[Summary] This article makes a detailed comparison of the advantages and disadvantages of galvanized sheets, cold-rolled sheets and stainless steel, and analyzes them from the perspectives of materials, properties, uses, etc., aiming to help readers better choose the sheets that suit their needs.
