Typical applications of Serica
Serica is ideal for a range of applications

A premium look at a lower cost

Serica displays far sharper reflections and a more premium appearance compared to normal full finish quality. This means that vehicle manufacturers can improve the quality of exposed body panels and reduce costs by using a modern paint system with fewer or thinner layers, or by switching from electro-galvanised to hot-dip galvanised steels.

Looking for a cost-effective alternative to electro galvanised sheet?

Especially when used in combination with mill-applied booster lubrication PLT, Serica provides a cost-efficient alternative to electro-galvanised steel sheet (EG) and pre-phosphated EG (EG-p) exterior components such as bonnets, doors and vehicle roofs.
