Materials – Zintec sheet metal cutting
Our reputation of Zintec sheet metal cutting using our state of the art laser cutting or cnc punching machines is based on our versatility and professional service.
Zintec is the trade name for British Steel plc cold rolled sheet and coil that has been electrolytically coated with a thin layer of zinc. It is produced at steel thicknesses of 0.4 to 2.0mm and contains a thickness of zinc from 1.0 to 1.75 microns.
Unlike the bright spangled surface produced by hot dip processes of galvanizing or Galvatite, Zintec is matt grey in appearance. Zintec is used in the manufacture of sheet steel pressed products like washing machines, air conditioning plant and car bodies, not aggressive external environments.
Zintec is produced in grades which incorporate either a chromate or an oil treatment to inhibit the formation of zinc oxide (white rust).
