A metallic zinc coating, Magnelis® includes 3.5% aluminium and 3% magnesium and offers the ultimate corrosion resistance in the most aggressive ambient conditions.
Unlike other metallic coatings, Magnelis® also offers excellent protection for cut edges thanks to its self-healing effect. The application of Magnelis® ensures the preservation of natural resources as it uses less zinc than pure-zinc coatings.
To meet market demand for gauges above 2 mm, ArcelorMittal has invested €1.9 million to upgrade the capabilities of our mill in Bremen (Germany). Work included the installation of a second zinc pot and changes to the electricity supply and temperature systems. Industrial deliveries of Magnelis® in gauges ranging from 0.8 to 6 mm started in September 2012.
