GALVSTEEL™ is the name for New Zealand Steel’s continuously hot-dipped galvanised steel products which are available in a variety of widths, gauges and mechanical grades.

GALVSTEEL™ products are particularly suited to applications where the corrosion resistance of zinc and the high strength to weight ratio of steel is required.

The performance of the GALVSTEEL™ product will be determined by the zinc coating thickness and the environment in which it is used. In dry neutral internal environments lower zinc coating (Z100, 100 g/m2) can be considered appropriate for selected applications. However in more corrosive environments, as with under ground steel culverts, a Z600 coating should be used.

The mechanical grade specified refers to the minimum yield strength of the steel base metal.
