I did a search,but didn't come up with much about BI.That is what they call it here in the Philippines.I was looking for cold rolled to do a cooker,but the local shops only carry GI (galvanized).One reference I came up with in the search was that BI was painted black.I don't know how true that is,but we do have high humidity here,so maybe they paint it for rust inhibiting?I did read that BI was really cheap material,but I don't know how accurate that is.

Anybody have good info on this?

Thank you k.a.m.

I found another link that also makes "some" sense to me.The guys answering the question indicate that it essentially slang,but does generally point towards mild steel.

Whether it is actually coated,is not known at this time.The wife was looking for it,and she couldn't tell what it was,but did say that it is black in color.

I'd bet the terminology comes from pipe. There are two kinds -- black iron, which is painted black, and galvanized.

Also don't confuse black "steel" pipe with black iron which is cast iron...
