I Forge Iron

Grey Coated steel (paint or something)

Recommended Posts

A while back I got hold of some fence brackets and such from my high school. They were throwing them out and I took them because I figured they had be mild steel. Without being able to remove the coating I thought I could burn it off, I put one into the forge and it had a yellowish color to it and produced green Flame. I instantly pulled it out, but was wondering what it could be? Any help would be appreciated.

The chain link fence hardware (strapping to hold the fence to the pipe or the flat bar for the same process) is galvanized to keep it from rusting.
