No matter whichever product you work with — and how experienced you are — there’re always a few things left to be known about it.
Aluzinc steel is no exception.
Below, we’ve compiled four lesser known facts about Aluzinc and we invite you to challenge your knowledge to see if you really know the metalproduct as well as you seem to think.
Ready for the acid test?
Aluzinc steel offers a far greater service life than galvanized steel
Galvanized steel is considered to be the gold standard for durability in construction and fabrication industry. It can last for up to 70 years without losing its strength.
But did you know, Aluzinc coated steel offers an even greater service life than galvanized steel?
Studies have shown Aluzinc steel outperforming galvanized steel in terms of corrosion resistance when exposed to rust causing conditions. Even for cut edges, Aluzinc shows superior corrosion resistant characteristics compared to galvanized steel.
Aluzinc coated steel offers high thermal efficiency
Aluzinc is a near to ideal material for construction projects as it offers high thermal efficiency. It helps keep the interior of a building warmer in winter and cooler in summer. Because of this very characteristic and its increased realization, roofing companies now prefer using AZ coated steel over tiles or galvanized steel.
Aluzinc steel is an environmentally friendly material
Aluzinc offers a number of environmental benefits.
First, it is 100% recyclable. You can recycle Aluzinc steel and re use it; the metal retains most of its performance properties even after recycling.
Second, its manufacturing process is ecofriendly too. The complete manufacturing line, from acid regeneration plant to effluent treatment plant, everything operates in an environmental friendly way.
And third because of its high thermal efficiency, it reduces energy consumption in buildings which adds to its green characteristics.
Aluzinc is more than just a wall cladding or roofing material
Roofing and wall cladding are the two widely known applications of Aluzinc steel. But its usage is not only restricted to these.
Aluzinc is also used in a range of other applications such as fencing, ducting, fabrication of garage doors and garden sheds, construction of electrical appliances and more.
