Galvanised steel is mild steel with a coating of zinc. The zinc protects the steel by providing cathodic protection to the exposed steel, so should the surface be damaged the zinc will corrode in preference to the steel. Galvanised steel is one of the most widely used products, used extensively in the building sector, automotive, agricultural and other areas where the steel needs to be protected from corrosion.
Taranaki Steelformers continues to roll-form GALVSTEEL® in our four roofing profiles so that any roof repair or patch work on existing galvanised roofs can be done. GALVSTEEL® is not advised for any new roof or cladding project however, it is the most suited material for intensive animal shelters. Please talk to the Taranaki Steelformers Technical Manager to discuss your project and to determine whether GALVSTEEL® is suitable for your application.
