Proven Strength. Lasting Power
BlueScope became the first manufacturer in 1976 to produce aluminium/zinc alloy coated steel under the trademark ZINCALUME® steel with proprietary surface treatment technology. The guaranteed material strength (G300 or G550 steel grade) and highest metallic alloy coating control in manufacturing ZINCALUME® steel will ensure long lasting performance.
