Is stainless steel banding suitable for fixing galvanized insulation cladding? If not, why not?


Selected Answers

From Salah Mohammed of Western Desert Petroleum Company on January 26, 2012:
     Scientifically, in terms of total surface are involved, it could be possible. As a  practical issue, it will lead to severe, localized corrosion (galvanic cell), just beside and underneath the stainless steel band. If you have to use a stainless steel band, you can prevent this type of corrosion in the field, simply by using any type of sealant (i.e., silicon RTV)  between the  band and the galvanized sheets.

From Brian Chapman of Cadillac Fabrication on January 23, 2012:
     It is possible to use the two together with good results. A couple of primary concerns, however, are the series of the SS (300, etc.) and the total surface area involved. This is only a general reference, and a professional should be consulted with project specifics before proceeding.
