Decades of proven perfomance
Launched in 1976, after intensive research and development, ZINCALUME® steel continues to set the standard for corrosion resistance and long life. It's been proven to stand the test of time because it was designed to withstand the rigors of Australia's unique climatic conditions. In fact, for over two decades BlueScope Steel has monitored the product's performance across a wide range of Australian climatic conditions using exposure test sites.
A significantly longer lifespan
ZINCALUME® steel was developed after extensive research into improving the traditional performance of galvanised iron. By blending aluminum with zinc in an alloy coating, researchers discovered a way to greatly enhance corrosion resistance. As a result, our extensive testing program indicates that ZINCALUME® steel lifespan is up to four times that of ordinary galvanised steel.
