Coating Thickness

Available in AZ35, AZ50 and AZ55 coating weights.

Chemical Treatment

A chemical surface treatment is available which consists of a thin, invisible, corrosion inhibiting, inorganic, chemical film applied on both sides of the metallic coated surface. This film is applied at the metallic coating line by dipping the steel strip into a solution of corrosion inhibiting chemicals. The chemically treated surface is much more resistant to staining that typically occurs in humid conditions during storage or transportation.

Resin Coating

A resin coating is also available on our 55% Aluminum-Zinc Alloy Coated Steel. This water-based resin coating is formulated to resist finger printing and scuffing during product handling, improves resistance to wet-stack stains occurring during transport and storage, and virtually eliminates the need for roll forming lubricants.

End-Use Applications

55% Aluminum-Zinc Alloy Coated Steel products are found in a wide variety of applications requiring long-term, maintenance free corrosion protection. End-use applications well suited for 55% Aluminum-Zinc Alloy Coated Steel include roofing and wall panel applications, metal buildings, fascia and other architectural applications.
