Thanks to the widespread use of Magnelis® in a wide range of industries and end applications, ArcelorMittal has decided to increase the company’s Magnelis® capacity, at its plant in Avilés, Spain. The company now produces Magnelis® - which first rolled off the production line in 2010 - in Belgium, Germany and Spain.
Magnelis® has enjoyed success in the solar energy market in particular, becoming the industry’s reference product for ground mounted structures; in the last three years, consumption has tripled. It is also becoming the product of choice in harsh outdoor and indoor environments.
In order to meet growing demand, the Avilés plant – part of ArcelorMittal Asturias - has adapted its Galvanising Line no. 2. Following best practice implementation and R&D product development, ArcelorMittal Asturias started producing Magnelis® on a commercial scale in May 2017. It will produce thicknesses from 0.5 to 2 mm.
Magnelis® - in a nutshell
ArcelorMittal’s Magnelis® is an exceptional metallic coating, a breakthrough in corrosion protection, which 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.
