GALVALUME is the trade name for a sheet steel featuring a highly corrosion-resistant coating of 55% aluminum, 43% zinc alloy. It delivers 7 times the resistance to corrosion as regular galvanized steel. The metallic coating on GALVALUME sheet steel combines the galvanic corrosion protection of zinc with the passivating barrier protection of aluminum, resulting in an economical long-lasting sheet steel product. This coating is applied using a continuous hot-dip coating process to ensure the highest quality.
This heavy-duty sheet steel is typically used in roofs, siding, air-conditioning equipment, appliances, automotive underbody parts and other high-temperature areas where high corrosion resistance is needed.
