Metal coatings for coils and sheets

Metal coated products are made for applications that must withstand various corrosive environment, wherein they extend the service life of the end product by protecting the steel from corrosion.

Extend product service life and more

In addition, properly chosen metal coating makes it possible to facilitate the processing of the coated product, for instance in terms of formability, weldability and paintability.

SSAB´s offering of hot-dip metal coated products include zinc (Z), galfan (ZA) and galvannealed (ZF) coated sheet steels. The zinc coating range covers protection from Z100 up to Z600. Service life up to 80 years can be achieved with Z600 coating.


Zinc coating (Z)

Protection against rust

Zinc coating produced on both sides by hot-dip galvanizing extends the service life of the end product by protecting the steel from corrosion.


Galfan (ZA)

Enhanced formability and corrosion resistance

Galfan is a zinc-aluminium alloy coating that provides excellent corrosion protection and forming properties compared to traditional zinc coating.

galvannealed steel

Galvannealed (ZF)

Excellent corrosion protection for painted steel parts

Galvannealed coating is a zinc-iron alloy coating featuring excellent resistance welding properties and paint adhesion. It is ideal coating for spot welding and high-end painting applications.
