ZINCGRIP® Steel is continuously coated on both sides with a zinc coating, using a hot dip process that we originally pioneered. With its tight metallurgical bond between the steel and the coating, ZINCGRIP Steel provides the strength and formability of steel plus the corrosion protection of zinc. Zinc protects the base metal by providing a barrier to corrosive elements and preferentially corroding in place of the base steel. ZINCGRIP Steel is available with special surface finishes, tailored for specific applications, and in a variety of base metal grades and coating weights. ZINCGRIP Steel is widely used in many applications in the automotive, appliance, construction, Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning (HVAC), and other industries.
