ArcelorMittal’s Magnelis® metallic coating ensures optimal surface protection against long-term wear and tear. After having undergone a series of comparative tests, this revolutionary new coating has proven to perform significantly better than alternative European products.
Magnesium is key
Magnelis® is produced on a classic industrial hot dip galvanising line, but is dipped in a molten bath comprising a distinctive metallic chemical composition of zinc with 3.5% aluminium and 3% magnesium. The 3% magnesium is crucial as it creates a stable and robust layer across the entire metal surface, providing a far more effective defence against corrosion than coatings with a lower magnesium content. Magnelis® performs up to ten times better than galvanised steel.
