Definition of Galvalume® [In Under 100 Words]

The use of Galvalume® in the construction industry is growing in popularity because of it's superior corrosion resistance. Learn the true definition of this metal material here.

 

What is Galvalume®?

Galvalume is a metal material that begins as a carbon steel base that is continuously hot-dipped with aluminum and zinc alloys until it reaches a coating consisting of 55% aluminum, 43.4% zinc, and 1.6% silicone. 

Founded in the 1970s by Bethlehem Steel, Galvalume combines the corrosion resistance of the coating alloys and the strength of steel, making it a popular choice for roofing and wall systems, machinery, appliances, heating and cooling equipment, and other applications.

Galvalume® is an internationally registered trademark of BIEC International Inc. and some of its licensed producers.
