I really am not familiar with this but I think it is galvanized steel with some sort of inexpensive primer paint finish on it.

for heaven's sake get the information before you start posting replies as an'expert'! Bonderized sheet metal is a galvanized sheet metal that has been put through a phosphate bath and chromate drying process leaving it ready to accept paint, and is used for downspout, gutter and other applications.

greg: Bonderize means: Coat with a substance that will prevent corrosion. http://www.wordwebonline.com/en/BONDERIZE Therefore Todd's definition could well be accurate.

LOL. It's been more than two years since the original post and I still don't know for certain what "bonderize" is! Oh well!

This is pretty wild that folks are dragging up this very old post. Something is driving us to it. A phosphate bath and chromate pre-treat as Greg mentioned is a way of prepping metal to receive paint. In most coatings systems, this is a precursor to a primer paint coating. I am unaware of anyone selling metal that has only had these processes done and has not had primer applied. Does not mean its out there but, if it is out there, I am not sure I'd want to work with it due to the small risk of chromate remaining on the surface and not having a primer in place to protect those handling the metal.

Someone can make something and call it anything. I have to side with Todd. I think I'll take galvanized steel and coat it with an elastomeric and call it rubberized steel.

I do have a customer looking for this material, prime phosphate bonderized sheets. 11 & 13 gauge. Where in Gary did you find it? I would appreciate your help!

That is some really heavy stuff. I might check with a steel distributor such as Ryerson or the like.

We use it WITHOUT a final coat for the insulation jacketing of oil pipelines in Alaska (but only in 24 gauge). Apparently some hippie spoke to the caribou and they said they don't like the typical shiny stuff in their tundra.

I used to be in the steel coating and lithograph buiseness. Bonderized steel looks like what we called black steel, and If I rember correctly this metal had a crome coating in lieu of a galvanized coating. Not sure it it's the same and the old memory ain't what it used to be.

You can buy 24x36" sheets of it at Home Depot now. One store also had what appeared to be 25ft. rolls of it, 10-12" wide. It has a slightly blackened appearance to it. I'm making a guitar pickguard out of it. Chris
