Next Generation Zincalume steel from BlueScope Steel features a new coating that is more durable in demanding environments, and it features patented Activate™ technology.

Rigorously tested both in real-world and accelerated lab conditions, the product’s breakthrough metal coating formulation exceeds the already high corrosion performance of current Zincalume steel.

The coating formula improves the galvanic action of the zinc and activates the aluminium to provide more effective corrosion resistance.

An additional magnesium compound operates as a barrier within existing zinc-rich channels to slow depletion and restrict pathways to the steel substrate.

The steel is subsequently said to be more resilient when drilled, cut or scratched.
