Improvements of hot-dip galvanized products in metallurgy, coating quality and surface
characteristics have led to coated products usable for automotive outer panels. With
adaptation of processing parameters, if necessary, galvanized products give excellent
results in forming, assembling and painting, as well as for functional properties
(paint appearance and adhesion, corrosion resistance). This is particularly the case for
ExtragalR, which is a pure zinc hot-dip galvanized product (GI).
