MagiZinc's unique properties
MagiZinc Auto offers significant advantages in processing and product performance
Its unique composition allows more robust and efficient forming of complex parts. Compared with GI and GA coatings, it delivers 200% improvement in corrosion protection, achieving these performance increases with less coating.
Our resilient MagiZinc Auto coating is less prone to zinc abrasion, galling and powdering, significantly reducing the typical concerns associated with hot-dipped GI coating and improving press shop KPIs for lost time and scrap. A lower, consistent coefficient of friction and less sensitivity to lubrication quantity reduces process variation and improves the robustness of complex forming processes.
The unique coating composition, with magnesium as the critical alloying element, increases corrosion protection to enable the benefits to be realised with a reduction in coating thickness. Alternatively, where corrosion is a critical performance criterion, Magizinc Auto allows significant improvements to be reached through no additional increase in coating weight. The coating is available in a thickness range of 70-140 g/m2 – with thinner coatings helping to improve welding process stability by reducing spatter and fumes.
