Technical Properties

1 Coated Steel includes the following types of steel: G90 hot dip galvanized, Galvalume®, and Zincalume®. 2 Fracturing or rupturing of substrate will rupture coatings. Heavy gauge and clad steel substrates impose limitations on formability 3 Corrosion performance is dependent on properly cleaned and pretreated substrate These test results are based on methods believed to be correct and were performed on laboratory prepared panels.
