ELECTRO GALVANIZED STEEL COILS (EG)
Electro-Galvanized Steel is a type of steel that has been electrolytically coated with zinc for protection. It is primarily used for commercial purposes, oftentimes for applications like office furnishings and light fixtures. However, it is also used abundantly within the automotive industry.
Electro-Galvanized Steel has a higher level of thickness control, which provides impressively accurate results. It is also ideal for making smaller components.
The finished product always has a shinier and more vibrant finish than the hot-dipped version. The sheet’s surface weldability is especially appreciated for spot and seam welds.
Electro-Galvanized Steel is best suited to processes involving slight bending, and deep drawing. A close relation to standard galvanized steel, Electro-Galvanized Steel has been ‘zinc electroplated’.
Electro-Galvanized Steel is widely used for interior applications due to its superior performance within unexposed environments. It has a more suitable grey/silver appearance, which makes it a match for applications required to fit a specific presentational criteria.
Electrolytic versions also have a uniform coating that is ideal for electrical appliances. This coating can even resist the most trivial markings like fingerprints. There is a significantly lower possibility of structure deformation or distortion with this product. Typical applications of Electro-Galvanized Steel include:
Non-exposed automotive panel
Acoustic ceiling tiles
Commercial refrigerators and freezers
