  • Aluminized exhaust pipe?

    Hello,
    I have quite a bit of exhaust pipe that I cut up thinking it would be good to practice welding thin tubing with. It came from summit racing and there ad for it says it's Aluminized. It kinda looks like it Galvenized. Does anybody know if this stuff has the same dangers as Galvinized? It seems like it comes off real easy with the wire wheel. Any input would be great.
    Thanks

    Aluminized exhaust has an aluminum coating instead of zinc, probably because exhaust gets hot. Since it's not zinc, so it does not pose the same danger. I wouldn't go out of my way to sniff the welding fumes though.

            smyrna5, Thanks for the link. I guess I should of used the search button

            usmcpop, That sound like the stuff we used at the bodyshop I worked at years ago, but I think the only thing it said on the can was " weldable primer "

            Thanks
