Coated products includes any Steel Strip that has a further finish applied to the natural steel surface. This can include zinc (by a process known as galvanising), paint or plastics.

The coating is applied to protect the surface from oxidation and or to enhance the material cosmetically.

The coating may be applied by the steel strip producer or by a downstream independent processor.

Hot dip galvanizing is the process of applying a zinc coating to fabricated iron or steel material by immersing the material in a bath consisting primarily of molten zinc. The simplicity of the galvanizing process is a distinct advantage over other methods of providing corrosion protection. The automotive industry depends heavily on this process for the production of many components used in car manufacturing.

Electro galvanizing
Zinc plating process whereby the molecules on the positively charged zinc anode attach to the negatively charged sheet steel. The thickness of the zinc coating is readily controlled. By increasing the electric charge or slowing the speed of the steel through the plating area, the coating will thicken.
