Unicoil develops colored thin organic coated coil

Unicoil has started the production of hot-dip galvanized steel with a thin coating of organic color called Mogalvin CTOC, the company said in a press release.
It is a special layer of coating that combines polymers and inorganic compounds tinted with color, providing galvanized steel with higher advanced properties, such as improved corrosion resistance, lubrication during forming operations, fingerprint resistance and aesthetics, which makes it superior to the conventionally passivated galvanized steel. The product is available in blue and green colors.
According to the press release, it is suitable for both interior and exterior applications for the most demanding requirements of heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC), construction, metal furniture and electrical junction boxes etc.
The company has, however, clarified that the product is not a substitute for pre-painted galvanized steel.
The eco-friendly product does not contain hexavalent chrome.
