ZINCGRIP? ELECTRASMOOTH? Steel is an electrogalvanized steel offering exceptional surface quality, corrosion resistance, excellent formability and paintability. These attributes make ZINCGRIP ELECTRASMOOTH Steel desirable for exposed applications including automotive exterior panels. Pure zinc coatings applied to cold rolled steel deliver both galvanic and barrier protection against corrosion. Even when damaged, such coatings continue to shield the base metal by corroding preferentially to the steel substrate. ZINCGRIP ELECTRASMOOTH Steel is available in a wide variety of base metal grades and coating weights.
