The POSCO Quality

Galvanized Steel

Galvanized steel products are made by cleansing and heat-treating rolled coils before dipping them into a bath of molten zinc. Through this process, the coils are plated with zinc only (GI), zinc and iron (GA) or zinc, aluminum and magnesium (PosMAC).

Product Coating Layer Structure Characteristics Common Uses
GI
(Galvanized Steel)
Zn100% -STEEL - Zn100%
  • While molten zinc solidifies on the surface of the steel sheet, normal zinc crystallization is suppressed, creating fine crystals.
  • The surface is flat and has a fine appearance after painting. Paintability is superior to regular spangle products.
Furniture, office appliances, inner & outer panels of home appliances, substrates for painting, automobile inner plates, pipes, construction materials
GA
(Galvannealed Steel)
Zn-Fe -STEEL - Zn-Fe
  • Through a thermal diffusion process, a steel sheet and zinc react to produce an alloy layer.
  • Weldability and paintability are superior to galvanized steel sheets.
  • Iron in the alloy layer enhances corrosion resistance after painting.
Inner & outer panels of home appliances and automobiles

The product can be used in various applications such as construction materials, pipe, electronics, furniture, materials with molten zinc to the hot rolled or cold rolled steel products.

Product Coating Layer Structure Characteristics Appearance
GI(H) Steel(열연원판) - Zn도금 - 후처리 A hot rolled steel plate is used as a base metal for this product. While molten zinc solidifies on the surface of the steel sheet, normal zinc crystallization is suppressed creating fine crystals.
GI Steel(냉연원판) - Zn도금 - 후처리 A cold rolled steel plate is used as a base metal for this product. While molten zinc solidifies on the surface of the steel sheet, normal zinc crystallization is suppressed creating fine crystals. The surface is flat and has a fine appearance after painting. Paintability is superior to ordinary products.
GA Steel(냉연원판) - Zn-Fe협금층 - 후처리 Through a thermal diffusion process, a steel sheet and zinc react to produce an alloy layer. The weldability and the paintability are superior to traditional galvanized steel sheets. Fe in the alloy coating enhances corrosion resistance.
