ZINCALUME® steel has been used with striking effect by leading architects to create the latest in modern building designs, through to classic roofing styles and rural sheds.
BlueScope’s ZINCALUME® steel with Activate® technology has a unique aluminium/ zinc/ magnesium alloy coating (AM) which acts in three ways:
- Magnesium, aluminium and zinc compounds are strategically positioned in the coating to provide sacrificial protection
- Magnesium compounds encourage the formation of a robust barrier, slowing the rate of subsequent corrosion
- Magnesium compounds also ‘activate’ the metal coating.
The result is a tough protective coating that provides enhanced corrosion resistance.
