  • Metallic coated - Steel for forming (US Standard units)

    Our forming steels are available in a wide range of grades and corrosion-resistant coatings.

    Each grade is designed for specific applications and comes with a choice of surface quality. Extensive dimensional choice provides opportunities for cutting waste and maximising yield.

    Metallic coated steel - Magizinc®

    MagiZinc® improves corrosion resistance with half the thickness of conventional zinc coatings, increasing yield, reducing cost and facilitating stronger, lighter products.

    It offers improved automotive corrosion protection and higher process efficiency.
