Mechanical Galvanized End Caps and Post Caps

post-capsWagner is pleased to announce that we have enhanced the corrosion resistance associated with our drive-on end caps and pressed post caps by using pre-galvanized steel or a mechanical galvanizing process.

The following items will be included as part of this process change:

Type A Drive-on End Caps
Part # Description
G3211 Mechanical Galvanized, Drive-on, 10 Guage Steel End Cap for 1-1/4″ Schedule 40 Pipe In Stock
G3212 Mechanical Galvanized, Drive-on, 10 Guage Steel End Cap for 1-1/2″ Schedule 40 Pipe In Stock
G3213 Mechanical Galvanized, Drive-on, 10 Guage Steel End Cap for 2″ Schedule 40 Pipe MTO*
G3290 Mechanical Galvanized, Drive-on, 10 Guage Steel End Cap for 2-1/2″ Schedule 40 Pipe MTO*
Post Caps
G5104 Mechanical Galvanized, 18 Gauge Steel Post Cap for 2.50″ Square Tube In Stock
G5106 Mechanical Galvanized, 18 Gauge Steel Post Cap for 3″ Square Tube In Stock
G5120 Mechanical Galvanized, 18 Gauge Steel Post Cap for 4″ Square Tube MTO*
* Made To Order (MTO) — 1000 piece minimum

Pre-galvanized steel material is purchased in coil form and run through a stamping operation to produce completed parts.  No post-production finishing process is needed.

Mechanical galvanizing is performed in a large barrel which rotates to transmit mechanical energy through glass media to attach zinc powder to the end cap surface.  In testing, these finishes provided a more consistent appearance and enhanced corrosion resistance than the dipped galvanizing process we have previously used on these parts.

These changes will start to be made over the next several months as we sell through the remaining cap inventory.
