From widths of 58 mm upwards we also supply our hot-dip galvanized slit strip with zinc-coated running edges for all-round corrosion prevention and optimal processability.
Galvanized and then coated with a high-grade polyolefin film, WProtect products offer an even higher level of protection against corrosion. The high-performance protective film is melted onto both sides of the hot-rolled strip directly after galvanizing.
What sounds simple is in fact a highly complex process: in combination with the temperature of the steel strip, the pressure of the roller ensures an optimal chemical and mechanical bond between the film and the galvanized steel.
WProtect is proof against practically any form of corrosion and effortlessly withstands the effects of moisture, abrasion, and an array of chemicals. Decades of enduring service in, for example, the field of wastewater engineering document its supreme resistance to corrosion.
