HELSINKI, October 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
Ruukki is to launch a new Z600 metal coating for applications requiring excellent corrosion resistance.
The thick Z600 coating has a mass of 600 g/m2 of zinc and can withstand complex forming. Typical applications for Z600 coating include silos, culverts, traffic sign poles, crash barriers, electrical cabinets, frame structures and cable trays.
Z600 coating can significantly extend the lifespan of products. For example, compared to the Z450 coating widely used in silos, the new Z600 coating can prolong the useful lifetime of a silo by up to a third.
"The surface quality of Z600-coated steel ranks among the best on the market and coating appearance is consistent. In applications where no welded structures are required, Z600 coating can guarantee the longer lifetime of the applications at a considerably lower cost than batch hot-dip galvanised products, for example," says Tony Harris, Vice President, Sales Western Europe & Africa at Ruukki.
Ruukki supplies Z600-coated steel as strip and tubular products for all metal-coated steel grades manufactured by Ruukki.
Ruukki's range of metal coatings also includes Galfan and Galvannealed coatings.
