Iron Zinc (IZ), gets its name from the iron zinc alloy it is coated with. Even though it has the same centre as galvanised, the different coating gives it a whole new bunch of properties and allows it to be specialised for different applications. IZ or galvanneal as it is sometimes referred to, provides a matte and consistent grey coloured finish and is more brittle and harder than galvanised. Famous for its welding, bending and forming ability makes it a favourite within the car and door manufacturing industries, especially with its high-quality painting properties and the extra scratch resistance given by its coat.
For IZ (Galvanneal) products please contact Sara, Jess or Charlotte on firstname.lastname@example.org or 0191 2646464.
