ZAM® Galvanized – The New Steel on the Block

TubesZAMWith advancements in science and technology, humans are able to develop stronger metals by combining the good qualities of different metals and ZAM® steel stands at its forefront. To better understand what ZAM® is and why it is better than traditional steel, we have to take a deeper look at ZAM®.

What is ZAM®?
ZAM® is an alloy of Zinc, Aluminum and magnesium coated steel sheet – hence ZAM® – and is excellent at fighting corrosion. In addition to its corrosion resistance properties, it possesses scratch resistance properties too. The 5-layer architecture of ZAM® coated steel gives it an edge over traditional steel when it comes to durability.

The ZAM® Revolution
The biggest problem faced by steel is that it starts to show signs of wear and tear relatively quickly, often depending on the quality of production. Moreover, it is very hard to protect steel from corrosion, often financially unfeasible once done. That’s where ZAM® excels. It lays all your corrosion concerns to rest, and lasts significantly longer than traditional steel.

Welcome to the era of ZAM® coated steel!

What makes ZAM® coated steel stand out is its special preparation process, which not only give it more strength, but also makes it corrosion resistant and scratch resistance. ZAM® coated steel combines the benefits of zinc, aluminum and magnesium into a single steel sheet.

The future looks much brighter and many new applications will emerge for ZAM® coated steel. Are you ready to jump on and be at the forefront of its application?
