Zintec Steel Sheet
Tough against corrosion
What do you get when you cross mild steel with zinc? A durable, versatile metal that fares brilliantly in storage and transit. This is Zintec steel sheet and it’s one of the most popular metals for use in car bodies, electronics, white goods and a whole lot more. It’s just the job if you don’t quite need the weather-proof properties of galvanised steel, but you do need a steel sheet metal that won’t rust easily. Thanks to a clever electromagnetic process, the steel is covered in a thin layer of zinc, which makes it extra strong. It’s also smooth, making it an excellent base for enamelling and powder-coating. Zintec steel (sometimes known as zinc steel) is easy to recognise thanks to its distinctive matt, bluish-hued finish. Unlike galvanised steel sheet, this metal doesn’t tend to be used for outdoor projects, but it is still incredibly tough when it comes to avoiding corrosion. Far less likely to oxidise (and subsequently rust) in transit and while it’s waiting to be used, Zintec is a great option when you know your metal will spend time being stored or transported. Just like our other metal products, our Zintec Steel Sheet comes in an array of sizes and thicknesses. Even better, our free cutting service means you get to tell us exactly how much you need, with no minimum order.
How it’s made: Cold reduced (or cold-rolled) steel is electrolytically cleaned and pickled to make sure the surface is free of any residue or oxidisation. It is then electromagnetically plated with the thin layer of Zintec, which gives it its name and its resistance to corrosion.
Good for: Car body parts, white goods, cabinets and other furniture, electronics, doors, air conditioning units, automotive parts, enamelling and powder coating.

Collect-a-Can is a South African-based initiative that aims to promote the recycling in South Africa. In 2007, they attempted the first world record for the most steel cans to be recycled in the space of one month. Since then, they have gone on to smash their own record twice.
