Our product portfolio includes hot-dip galvanized steel, under which the grades DX51D to DX57D as well as the structural steels S220GD to S550GD are integrated. These grades are the soft steels within the hot-dip galvanized sheets and are characterized by their excellent formability. They can be used for deep drawing and bending. The mechanical properties of the individual steel grades are characterized by the level of yield strength and tensile strength as well as by guaranteed minimum values of elongation at break.

The soft steels can be classified as follows.

  • DX51D: Machine fold quality
  • DX52D: drawing quality
  • DX53D: deep drawing quality
  • DX54D: special deep drawing quality
  • DX55D: Special deep drawing quality (only + AS)
  • DX56D: Special deep drawing quality
  • DX57D: Extrem deep drawing quality

For hot-dip coated strip and sheet, the following European uniform marks have been introduced.

  • Z zinc coating (99% Zn)
  • ZF zinc-iron alloy coating (Galvannealed)
  • ZA zinc-aluminum coating (Zn + 5% Al)
  • AZ aluminum-zinc coating (55% Al + 1.6% Si + Zn)
  • AS aluminum-silicon coating (11% Si + Al)
  • ZM zinc-magnesium coating (1-2% Mg + 1-2% Al + Zn)

Zinc coating finish – common zinc crystal (N)

This design results by an unaffected solidification of the zinc coating. Depending on the galvanizing conditions, either zinc crystals with different gloss and size or no zinc crystals may be present. The quality of the coating is not affected.

Zinc coating finish – small zinc crystal (M)

This design results by deliberately influencing the solidification process. The surface has a smaller zinc flower, which in some cases is not visible to the naked eye. If the usual zinc flower does not meet the requirements of the appearance of the surface, this design comes into consideration.

Coating design for zinc-iron alloy (ZF)

The coating of a zinc-iron alloy in a usual condition is formed by a heat treatment in which iron diffuses through the zinc. The surface has a uniform matt gray look.

Coating design for zinc-aluminum coatings (ZA)

An unaffected solidification of the zinc-aluminum coating results in this version with a metallic luster. Depending on the manufacturing conditions, crystals of different gloss and of different sizes are formed. The quality of the coating is not affected.

Coating design for zinc-magnesium coatings (ZM)

By an unaffected solidification of the zinc-magnesium coating, this version results in a different appearance, from dull to metallic sheen. Possible images and a tendency to darken may occur.

Coating design for aluminum-zinc coatings (AZ)

The products are delivered with standard crystals. Common crystals are a version with metallic luster, which results in unaffected growth of aluminum-zinc crystals under normal solidification conditions.

Coating design for aluminum-silicon coatings (AS)

In contrast to the other hot-dip coated products, a relatively pronounced Al-Fe-Si alloy layer is formed on the base material during hot dipping. This must be taken into account in further processing steps.
