Lead Times & Releases
determined by the type of change requested. Each request
will be reviewed within twenty-four (24) hours. However, it may take up to one (1) business day to determine
acceptance or refusal of the requested change.
Steelscape will make every attempt to satisfy the customer
order request date. Availability of materials - substrate and
paint - in addition to line time availability will determine
Steelscape’s ability to meet the request date. Every order will
reflect the customer order requested ship date as well as the
Steelscape Acknowledged Date.
3. Approval of changes will depend on the type of change
requested and the status of order (i.e. where the order is
in-process, lead time guarantee, etc.)
To help our customers better understand Steelscape’s order
entry process as it relates to lead times we offer the following
order practices:
4. Orders approved for change will be revised per the customer request.
1. Steelscape commits to shipping orders within the agreed
lead times.
4. Customers will be notified of the outcomes for all changes
requested.
2. Steelscape does require orders be processed with a release
date already provided or the orders to be released at least
one week prior to the Acknowledged Date. This will enable
us to rapidly package the orders, schedule appropriate
transportation and have them shipped on or before the
date we have indicated.
Allowable changes include:
Substrate
Coating Weight
Width
Quantity*
Lead Time
Price
3. Steelscape requires 48 hours to arrange trucking. Orders
requiring shipment should be released a minimum of 48
hours prior to the required shipping date.

Packaging Instructions

* Some restrictions apply to amending these items. Consult Steelscape
Customer Service with any questions or concerns.
Amending an order may result in resetting of the Acknowledged Date. Upon
amendment approval, a revised order acknowledgement will be reprinted and
be sent to the customer.
4. In the absence of a customer order release received at
least one week before the Acknowledged Date, Steelscape
will produce and package for shipment all orders by the
agreed date.
Any further questions regarding Steelscape’s order change policy can be
directed to the Customer Service Department.
NOTE: Our delivery time is measured by the Acknowledged Production Date
of the order and does not include the transportation time or mode
used to deliver the product from our facility to the customer’s final
destination. Providing a release date when placing an order will help
ensure the added time for transportation is minimal.

Upon receipt and entry of an order into the Steelscape
production system, the customer will be provided an Order

delay. In addition, if, for any reason, this order is placed on ship hold, (i) Seller
shall not be responsible for defects in the primer or finish coat of paint that may
be caused by weather conditions, (ii) the order will be subject to storage charges
as billed by Seller, and (iii) Purchaser shall be responsible to make payment for
such materials. (e) Purchaser shall accept or reject the goods by written notice
to Seller given promptly upon delivery of the goods. All claims of any kind or
nature must be made within 48 hours of receipt by Purchaser of the goods.
Purchaser is familiar with the nature of the goods furnished by Seller and agrees
that the time period set forth herein for notice of nonconformity is reasonable.
All claims must be supported by coil identification and must be in its original
size unless otherwise agreed to by Seller. Seller reserves the right to inspect
such material upon notification from Purchaser. Inspection and testing by Seller
is final and conclusive and shall be binding upon Purchaser. No returns will be
accepted or allowances made unless authorized in writing by Seller. Seller shall
have satisfactorily performed its obligations hereunder if it supplies an amount
with ten percent (10%) more or less than the amount ordered unless otherwise
specified. (f) Seller shall not be responsible for spoilage caused by defective
metal supplied by Purchaser whether such spoilage occurs at Seller’s plant or at
Purchaser’s plant. Similarly, Seller will not be responsible for deviations in the
physical dimensions of Purchaser’s material. Although it is the policy of Seller to
advise Purchaser should Seller determine that any of Purchaser’s material is not
suitable for coating, if Seller for any reason runs a portion of Purchaser’s material
before a defect is detected, Purchaser agrees to pay to Seller for Seller’s time
and the coatings used. (g) Purchaser acknowledges that the production of prepainted metal on high-speed coil coating lines and other production equipment
has hazards which are caused by imperfections in metal as well as technical
problems associated with continuous high-speed coil coating. Purchaser agrees
to absorb, without claim, up to three percent (3%) of the coating material
shipped per order. (h) Purchaser acknowledges that the inside and outside laps
of coils may have a defective finish due to necessary handling and that there may
be test marks necessary to maintain quality in each coil. Purchaser agrees that
neither of these conditions are cause for rejection.
2. Price. (a) The prices in this order are based upon circumstances existing on
the date Seller accepted the order. All charges for (and all subsequent increases
in or impositions of) insurance, freight or transportation rates, demurrages,
storage costs, port charges (wharfages, re-handling, and other charges), customs
or import duties, dumping duties and countervailing duties, surcharges, border
taxes, governmental tariffs, and any other charges, taxes, duties, assessments,
imposts or other levies of any nature whatsoever, imposed by any private, public,
governmental or quasi-governmental agency whether national, state or local,
foreign or domestic, whether caused by change in duty classifications, valuations
or for any other reason whatsoever, shall be added to and become a part of
the order price and paid by Purchaser hereunder. (b) Freight and insurance
charges from Seller’s facility or Seller’s supply point and Seller’s freight
handling charges shall be borne by the Purchaser unless otherwise agreed. The
freight and handling charges shown on the invoice may include an additional
handling charge and/or may not reflect the actual cost of shipping the goods
delivered hereunder. (c) Purchaser shall pay all applicable sales, purchase, use,
consumption and excise taxes. If Purchaser’s purchases of the goods are exempt
from sales or use tax, Purchaser must furnish the appropriate resale certificates
or sales tax exemption numbers. Except as otherwise specifically provided in
this order, all import permits and licenses and the payment of all United States
import duties and customs fees shall be the sole responsibility of Purchaser. (d)
Where metal is supplied by Purchaser, the weight billed is the weight of coated
metal shipped. (e) The pre-painted acknowledgement price covers a specific
quantity. If less metal is supplied by Purchaser for painting in one production
run than quoted, Seller will adjust the order price to the appropriate quantity
bracket without notifying Purchaser. (f) Orders are subject to re-pricing upon
written notice by Seller to Purchaser.
3. Payment. (a) Payment shall be made in compliance with Seller’s payment
terms and such payment shall not be subject to retainage of any description.
Seller may suspend production, shipments, and delivery and retake possession
of any materials furnished until all such payments as are due are paid in full.
All payments not made when due shall bear interest at the rate of 18% per
annum from the due date (or the maximum interest rate allowed by the state
in which the sale is made whichever is less). If suit is brought by Seller to
enforce this agreement, Purchaser shall pay a reasonable attorney’s fee to Seller
as fixed by the Court, plus other reasonable costs of collection. Failure to pay
invoices when due shall make all other outstanding invoices immediately due
and payable. The receipt by Seller of part payment of the full amount then due
and payable shall not be a waiver of any of Seller’s rights set forth herein or
provided by law. (b) If, in the sole judgment of Seller, it appears that Purchaser
may not be able to make payment when due, or if Purchaser otherwise has
not made payment to Seller as required under a different order, Seller shall
have the right to suspend manufacture, shipment, or delivery of materials and
seek reasonable assurances of Purchaser’s ability to make payments. Seller shall
resume suspended performance at the time that in its sole judgment adequate
assurances have been provided. (c) All deliveries shall be subject to the approval
of Seller’s Credit Department. Seller reserves the right before making any delivery
to require payment in cash or additional security for payment; and if Purchaser
fails to comply with such requirements, Seller may terminate this order
5. Risk of Loss, Title, and Security Interest. Risk of loss and title for the goods
shall pass to Purchaser, subject to any applicable lien rights of Seller at the
time of shipment to Purchaser of the goods. Purchaser must obtain adequate
insurance to cover the goods from the time of risk of loss has passed from
Seller. To the extent this order is for Seller to provide metal painting service only,
Purchaser hereby grants to Seller a security interest in the goods as described
more particularly elsewhere in this order, in all accounts, chattel paper, general
intangibles, documents, instruments and causes of action related thereto, and in
all proceeds of all of the foregoing in order to secure Purchaser’s timely payment
of the purchase price hereunder. Cumulative with all other remedies available
to Seller in law, at equity, or otherwise, Seller (a) may require Purchaser to
assemble the collateral and make it available to Seller at a place designated by
it which is reasonably convenient to both parties; (b) shall be entitled to recover
all reasonable legal fees and costs incurred by it; and (c) shall have the right
to notify customers, account debtors or other obligors of Purchaser that Seller
has been granted a security interest in Purchaser’s accounts, and to collect
such accounts directly. Any notification under this paragraph to Purchaser’s
customers, account debtors or other obligors by Seller shall constitute and be
deemed for all purposes and instruction by Purchaser to said customers, account
debtors or other obligors to make payment directly to Seller. In any case where
such instruction by Purchaser may be required, Purchaser hereby irrevocably
makes, constitutes and appoints Seller and its officers and employees as its
true and lawful attorneys in fact, with power to endorse Purchaser’s name upon
checks, notes, account drafts and other instruments and evidences of payment
that may come into Seller’s possession in connection herewith. Amounts
collected by Seller directly from Purchaser’s customers, account debtors or
4. Shipment and Claims. (a) Unless otherwise specified in writing, Seller’s
delivery obligation shall be at Seller’s facility. The goods shall be made available
to Purchaser for receipt at Seller’s facility during normal business hours after
notification is given to Purchaser by Seller that the goods are ready for pick
up. Where warehouse storage is provided by Seller for Purchaser’s goods, Seller
is not liable for any metal deterioration. (b) All shipping dates are estimates
and are based upon prompt receipt by Seller of all information necessary
for completion of the order and are subject to delays should Seller suspend

STEELSCAPE TERMS & CONDITIONS OF SALE
1. Acceptance. No terms or conditions other than those stated herein, and no agreement or understanding, oral or written, purporting to modify these terms or conditions,
whether contained in Purchaser's purchase order or shipping release forms or elsewhere, shall be binding on STEELSCAPE, LLC ("Seller") unless signed by its authorized
representative. No proposals, negotiations and representations, if any, made prior and with reference hereto shall have any effect unless expressed herein. Notwithstanding
the above, this order shall be subject to acceptance by Seller. Acknowledgement of an order by Seller does not constitute acceptance of the order unless expressly so stated.
Upon acceptance, Seller shall have the right to begin performance. Purchaser shall not have the right to cancel this order after it has been accepted without paying a
Cancellation Charge. The amount of the Cancellation Charge shall be based upon costs incurred with respect to the canceled order, as determined by Seller.
2. Price. (a) The prices in this order are based upon circumstances existing on the date Seller accepted the order. All charges for (and all subsequent increases in or
impositions of) insurance, freight or transportation rates, demurrages, storage costs, port charges (wharfages, re-handling, and other charges), customs or import duties,
dumping duties and countervailing duties, surcharges, border taxes, governmental tariffs, and any other charges, taxes, duties, assessments, imposts or other levies of any
nature whatsoever, imposed by any private, public, governmental or quasi-governmental agency whether national, state or local, foreign or domestic, whether caused by
change in duty classifications, valuations or for any other reason whatsoever, shall be added to and become a part of the order price and paid by Purchaser hereunder. (b)
Freight and insurance charges from Seller's facility or Seller's supply point and Seller's freight handling charges shall be borne by the Purchaser unless otherwise agreed. The
freight and handling charges shown on the invoice may include an additional handling charge and/or may not reflect the actual cost of shipping the goods delivered hereunder.
(c) Purchaser shall pay all applicable sales, purchase, use, consumption and excise taxes. If Purchaser's purchases of the goods are exempt from sales or use tax, Purchaser
must furnish the appropriate resale certificates or sales tax exemption numbers. Except as otherwise specifically provided in this order, all import permits and licenses and the
payment of all United States import duties and customs fees shall be the sole responsibility of Purchaser. (d) Where metal is supplied by Purchaser, the weight billed is the
weight of coated metal shipped. (e) The pre-painted acknowledgement price covers a specific quantity. If less metal is supplied by Purchaser for painting in one production run
than quoted, Seller will adjust the order price to the appropriate quantity bracket without notifying Purchaser. (f) Orders are subject to re-pricing upon written notice by Seller to
Purchaser.
3. Payment. (a) Payment shall be made in compliance with Seller's payment terms and such payment shall not be subject to retainage of any description. Seller may suspend
production, shipments, and delivery and retake possession of any materials furnished until all such payments as are due are paid in full. All payments not made when due
shall bear interest at the rate of 18% per annum from the due date (or the maximum interest rate allowed by the state in which the sale is made whichever is less). If suit is
brought by Seller to enforce this agreement, Purchaser shall pay a reasonable attorney's fee to Seller as fixed by the Court, plus other reasonable costs of collection. Failure
to pay invoices when due shall make all other outstanding invoices immediately due and payable. The receipt by Seller of part payment of the full amount then due and
payable shall not be a waiver of any of Seller's rights set forth herein or provided by law. (b) If, in the sole judgment of Seller, it appears that Purchaser may not be able to
make payment when due, or if Purchaser otherwise has not made payment to Seller as required under a different order, Seller shall have the right to suspend manufacture,
shipment, or delivery of materials and seek reasonable assurances of Purchaser's ability to make payments. Seller shall resume suspended performance at the time that in its
sole judgment adequate assurances have been provided. (c) All deliveries shall be subject to the approval of Seller's Credit Department. Seller reserves the right before
making any delivery to require payment in cash or additional security for payment; and if Purchaser fails to comply with such requirements, Seller may terminate this order
4. Shipment and Claims. (a) Unless otherwise specified in writing, Seller's delivery obligation shall be at Seller's facility. The goods shall be made available to Purchaser for
receipt at Seller's facility during normal business hours after notification is given to Purchaser by Seller that the goods are ready for pick up. Where warehouse storage is
provided by Seller for Purchaser's goods, Seller is not liable for any metal deterioration. (b) All shipping dates are estimates and are based upon prompt receipt by Seller of all
information necessary for completion of the order and are subject to delays should Seller suspend production, shipments and delivery pursuant to Sections 3(a) or (b) above,
or otherwise. (c) Seller shall not be liable, and Purchaser agrees to forego making claims against Seller, for delays in manufacture,
shipping, or delivery caused in whole or in part by: delays in receipt of or unavailability of materials, fuel, power or transportation; breakdown of equipment; strikes, lockouts or
other differences with employees; local labor shortages; accidents, war, riots, fire, floods, storms, epidemic, acts of God or other casualties; acts of the Purchaser; government
action, embargo, allocation, regulation or requirement; any act or neglect of the carrier or any other person not employed by Seller, including without limitation subcontractors,
manufacturers, or suppliers of Seller; or other causes beyond Seller's reasonable control whether of a similar or dissimilar nature than those enumerated. (d) If Purchaser
does not schedule pick up or unloading at the delivery site within a reasonable time, Seller may assess the costs of delay and shall not be responsible for any additional costs
incurred as a result of such a delay. In addition, if, for any reason, this order is placed on ship hold, (i) Seller shall not be responsible for defects in the primer or finish coat of
paint that may be caused by weather conditions, (ii) the order will be subject to storage charges as billed by Seller, and (iii) Purchaser shall be responsible to make payment
for such materials. (e) Purchaser shall accept or reject the goods by written notice to Seller given promptly upon delivery of the goods. All claims of any kind or nature must be
made within 48 hours of receipt by Purchaser of the goods. Purchaser is familiar with the nature of the goods furnished by Seller and agrees that the time period set forth
herein for notice of nonconformity is reasonable. All claims must be supported by coil identification and must be in its original size unless otherwise agreed to by Seller. Seller
reserves the right to inspect such material upon notification from Purchaser. Inspection and testing by Seller is final and conclusive and shall be binding upon Purchaser. No
returns will be accepted or allowances made unless authorized in writing by Seller. Seller shall have satisfactorily performed its obligations hereunder if it supplies an amount
with ten percent (10%) more or less than the amount ordered unless otherwise specified. (f) Seller shall not be responsible for spoilage caused by defective metal supplied by
Purchaser whether such spoilage occurs at Seller's plant or at Purchaser's plant. Similarly, Seller will not be responsible for deviations in the physical dimensions of
Purchaser's material. Although it is the policy of Seller to advise Purchaser should Seller determine that any of Purchaser's material is not suitable for coating, if Seller for any
reason runs a portion of Purchaser's material before a defect is detected, Purchaser agrees to pay to Seller for Seller's time and the coatings used. (g) Purchaser
acknowledges that the production of pre-painted metal on high-speed coil coating lines and other production equipment has hazards which are caused by imperfections in
metal as well as technical problems associated with continuous high-speed coil coating. Purchaser agrees to absorb, without claim, up to three percent (3%) of the coating
material shipped per order. (h) Purchaser acknowledges that the inside and outside laps of coils may have a defective finish due to necessary handling and that there may be
test marks necessary to maintain quality in each coil. Purchaser agrees that neither of these conditions are cause for rejection.
5. Risk of Loss, Title, and Security Interest. Risk of loss and title for the goods shall pass to Purchaser, subject to any applicable lien rights of Seller at
the time of shipment to Purchaser of the goods. Purchaser must obtain adequate insurance to cover the goods from the time of risk of loss has passed
from Seller. To the extent this order is for Seller to provide metal painting service only, Purchaser hereby grants to Seller a security interest in the goods
as described more particularly elsewhere in this order, in all accounts, chattel paper, general intangibles, documents, instruments and causes of action
related thereto, and in all proceeds of all of the foregoing in order to secure Purchaser's timely payment of the purchase price hereunder. Cumulative
with all other remedies available to Seller in law, at equity, or otherwise, Seller (a) may require Purchaser to assemble the collateral and make it
available to Seller at a place designated by it which is reasonably convenient to both parties; (b) shall be entitled to recover all reasonable legal fees and
costs incurred by it; and (c) shall have the right to notify customers, account debtors or other obligors of Purchaser that Seller has been granted a
security interest in Purchaser's accounts, and to collect such accounts directly. Any notification under this paragraph to Purchaser's customers, account

Warning
Hazard Statement:
Does not pose a health hazard in its normal form. Inhalation of metal dust and fume may result
from further processing by the user, particularly during welding, burning, grinding and machining
activities. These potential health hazards should be evaluated by the user. A non-metallic
passivation treatment is normally applied based upon customer/end use criteria. These nonmetallic coatings may contain hazardous substances of varying amounts. During processing,
substances of varying chemical composition and quantity may be generated by the surface
passivant. MSDS information regarding the surface passivant shall be supplied to the user upon
request.
Carcinogenity:
Certain chromium and nickel compounds as well as organic compounds found in various coating
materials have been listed as carcinogens by the NTP, IARC, or OSHA.
Medical Conditions Aggravated by Long Term Exposure:
Individuals with chronic respiratory disorders (i.e., asthma, chronic bronchitis, emphysema, etc.)
may be adversely affected by any fume or airborne particulate matter exposure.
Chronic Effects:
Chronic inhalation concentrations of iron oxide fumes or dusts may lead to a benign
pneumoconiosis (siderosis). Inhalation of high concentrations of ferric oxide may possibly enhance
the risk of lung cancer development in workers exposed to pulmonary carcinogens. Chronic
inhalation concentrations of aluminum fumes or dusts may lead to a fibrotic lung condition known
as Shaver.s disease; however, evidence for this is not conclusive since affected workers were
exposed to other substances (silica) as well. The inhalation of high concentrations of dust from
manganese, copper, lead and/or zinc in the respirable particle size range can cause an influenzalike illness termed metal fume fever. Typical symptoms last 12 to 48 hours and are characterized by
metallic taste in mouth, dryness and irritation of the throat, followed by weakness, muscle pain,
fever and chills. Continuous exposures to high concentrations of manganese can cause central
nervous system disorders and .manganese pneumonia.. Fibrosis of lung tissue from manganese
exposure has also been reported for products containing manganese only. Overexposure to
aluminum dust can cause shortness of breath. Long term inhalation exposure to high
concentrations (overexposure) to pneumoconiotic agents may act synergistically with inhalation of
oxides, fumes or dusts of this product to cause toxic effects. Prolonged or repeated contact with

unprotected skin may result in skin irritation. Torching or burning operations on steel products with
oil or organic coating may produce emissions which can be irritating to the eyes and respiratory
tract.
Precautionary Statement:
Inhalation of metal dust and fume may result from further processing by the user, particularly during
welding, burning, grinding and machining activities. These potential health hazards should be
evaluated by the user.

Warning
Hazard Statement:
Does not pose a health hazard in its normal form. Inhalation of metal dust and fume may result
from further processing by the user, particularly during welding, burning, grinding and machining
activities. These potential health hazards should be evaluated by the user. A non-metallic
passivation treatment is normally applied based upon customer/end use criteria. These nonmetallic coatings may contain hazardous substances of varying amounts. During processing,
substances of varying chemical composition and quantity may be generated by the surface
passivant. MSDS information regarding the surface passivant shall be supplied to the user upon
request.
Carcinogenity:
Certain chromium and nickel compounds as well as organic compounds found in various coating
materials have been listed as carcinogens by the NTP, IARC, or OSHA.
Medical Conditions Aggravated by Long Term Exposure:
Individuals with chronic respiratory disorders (i.e., asthma, chronic bronchitis, emphysema, etc.)
may be adversely affected by any fume or airborne particulate matter exposure.
Chronic Effects:
Chronic inhalation concentrations of iron oxide fumes or dusts may lead to a benign
pneumoconiosis (siderosis). Inhalation of high concentrations of ferric oxide may possibly enhance
the risk of lung cancer development in workers exposed to pulmonary carcinogens. Chronic
inhalation concentrations of aluminum fumes or dusts may lead to a fibrotic lung condition known
as Shaver.s disease; however, evidence for this is not conclusive since affected workers were
exposed to other substances (silica) as well. The inhalation of high concentrations of dust from
manganese, copper, lead and/or zinc in the respirable particle size range can cause an influenzalike illness termed metal fume fever. Typical symptoms last 12 to 48 hours and are characterized by
metallic taste in mouth, dryness and irritation of the throat, followed by weakness, muscle pain,
fever and chills. Continuous exposures to high concentrations of manganese can cause central
nervous system disorders and .manganese pneumonia.. Fibrosis of lung tissue from manganese
exposure has also been reported for products containing manganese only. Overexposure to
aluminum dust can cause shortness of breath. Long term inhalation exposure to high
concentrations (overexposure) to pneumoconiotic agents may act synergistically with inhalation of
oxides, fumes or dusts of this product to cause toxic effects. Prolonged or repeated contact with

unprotected skin may result in skin irritation. Torching or burning operations on steel products with
oil or organic coating may produce emissions which can be irritating to the eyes and respiratory
tract.
Precautionary Statement:
Inhalation of metal dust and fume may result from further processing by the user, particularly during
welding, burning, grinding and machining activities. These potential health hazards should be
evaluated by the user.

General Guide to Good Practice in the Use of ZINCALUME®
Steel for Roofing and Siding Products
INTRODUCTION
product for a specific structure. This is especially true
for the special requirements of severe coastal
and industrial as well as animal confinement
environments.
Panels fabricated from ZINCALUME Steel will provide
many years of trouble-free service when properly
designed, installed and maintained. The key to
obtaining all of the benefits of the corrosion resistant
coatings applied to steel used in roofing, siding and
rainwater items lies in correct material selection,
good handling and installation practice, and sensible
maintenance.
®
Designs for Durability
There are many factors that should be considered
in the design phase of any building to ensure the
maximum trouble-free service life. The following factors
are some of the primary considerations.
Few roofing or siding products are replaced because
of an overall breakdown or general corrosion.
Replacement is generally due to isolated component
failure which could have been avoided by following a
few simple rules. This Technical Bulletin sets out the
general principles to follow. Attention to the following
factors should ensure satisfactory performance
and good service life. Manufacturers’ specific
recommendations about their particular products
should be followed.
Minimum Roof Pitch
The pitch must be designated/designed so that
standing water conditions are not created. Water or
condensate must freely drain from the roof panels.
Where a roof includes several slopes, a valley gutter or
other device should be installed to ensure adequate
drainage. Specified minimum pitch will vary according
to the depth of the roof profile and the means of
fastening. Many standing seam roofing systems with
deep profiles (i.e. panel seams ranging from 2-3
inches), fastened with concealed clips which do not
penetrate the steel weathering membrane, may be
installed down to a minimum slope.
Correct Selection of Materials
The correct selection of roofing and siding materials
is the first step to ensuring a building’s long life. The
range of products manufactured by Steelscape is
designed to provide good performance under normal
environments from benign rural areas to corrosive
industrial or salt-laden coastal atmospheres. Correct
selection is a matter of choosing the right product for
its intended use.
Regardless of roof pitch, the cut ends of panels should
be burr down, or designed with a rolled, or hemmed
edge to prevent moisture from being held at the edge.
A properly installed standing seam roofing system will
allow the roof to drain effectively without “flooding”
the laps. The concealed clips ensure the drainage part
of the panel membrane is not breached by fastening
holes through which water may leak. Perimeter
detailing and flashing is also an important component
of such a system.
A roofing installation in a coastal environment has
a completely different demand upon it than one in
a benign rural location. Our experienced sales and
technical personnel should be consulted if there is
any doubt as to the correct metallic coated or painted
31
August 2017 I Rev 1
MENU
TECHNICAL BULLETIN TB-1 ZINCALUME® Steel
is according to recommendations. Most metal panel
manufacturers provide load tables to assist in the
selection of an appropriate profile for spanning conditions.
A roof fixed to its minimum pitch must observe all of
the criteria for correct installation. Supports must be
carefully aligned to avoid creating low spots in the roof
where ponding will occur, leading ultimately to reduce
service life.
Fume Extractors & Vents
Corrosive dust and particles can be released through
roof vents and discharged onto the roof surface. The
immediate area of the roof adjacent to the vent is then
at increased risk of corrosion. The following design
guidelines should be considered to avoid problems.
Correct Support Spacing
Correct spacing of supports is important. Not only do
the purlins, battens, etc., support the weight of the roof
and the weight of the roofer during installation, they
must be strong enough to prevent the sheets of decking
from blowing away in high winds.
• Locate vents on the corner of the windward side of
the building.
Support spacing near the eaves and the ridge is usually
less than the intermediate spacings. This allows the
roof to handle the increased lift and forces created by
wind turbulence. The supports hold the roof down and
they must themselves be restrained. It is possible for a
roof to be blown off with the purlins or pieces of poor
quality lumber battens attached to the sheets.
• Install filter elements to trap hazardous material.
• Specify pre-painted product or apply a protective
coating to the affected area of the roof.
• Maintain coal or oil fired boilers or incinerators so
they do not discharge sulfur compounds over the
roof surface.
• Avoid condensate from copper tubing.
Steel Thickness - Base Metal
To protect steel sheet from the corrosive effects of the
elements, a layer of metallic aluminum/zinc alloy is
applied to the steel base in the hot-dip process. To
enhance this protection as well as provide an attractive
appearance, a pre-painted steel finish is also an option.
These protective finishes are the major determinants of
long service life and lasting good looks. The structural
strength of the roofing or siding profile is derived
entirely from the steel base and the profile of the
particular steel panel.
Foot Traffic
Repeated foot traffic and the dragging of maintenance
or cleaning equipment over the roof surface may
damage the roof which will reduce its life expectancy.
Catwalks and platforms should be designed and
installed where necessary.
Roof Structures
Equipment such as air conditioning units are often secured to uncoated steel channels. Uncoated steel used
on a ZINCALUME Steel roof should be cleaned, primed
and given a suitable finish coating. If left unprotected
the rust may bleed onto the ZINCALUME Steel panels
and stain the surface. For guidelines on the installation of photovoltaic panels see Technical Bulletin #12
“Guidelines for the Use of Photovoltaic Panels with ZINCALUME®
Steel”.
An important consideration in the spanning capacity
of a steel profile is its base metal thickness, which
is used to determine support spacings. The total
thickness of pre-painted steel sheet (the base metal
steel plus an aluminum/zinc hot-dipped coating,
plus pre-painted finish) is, at best, a very imprecise
indicator of the base metal thickness which provides
the strength of the roof sheeting.
Site Storage Before Erection
Where possible do not leave uncovered coils or stacks
of sheets lying in the open. Install finished material
as quickly as possible. Store materials indoors and
away from openings to the outside. On arrival at site,
ensure the steel sheets are dry. If wet, open the pack
The ability of the roof sheeting to span recommended
distances without severe deflection, to support the
installer, and to resist tearing away from fixing clips
or screws largely depends on the base metal strength.
Always ensure that the base metal thickness specified

finger and hand prints and aids in forming. If bare
ZINCALUME Steel is utilized, clean gloves should be
worn when handling.
If it is absolutely necessary to store ZINCALUME Steel
outdoors please follow the following guidelines:
Laying
• Erect simple scaffolding around the material and
cover it with a waterproof sheet or tarp. Ensure
space is allowed between the cover and the
material to allow air to circulate.
Pierced sheets should be installed with overlaps away
from the weather. End laps in profiled metal roofing
should be avoided where possible. The end lap of
ZINCALUME Steel and painted profiles should be
sealed with a double bead of sealant.
• Store material off the ground and on an incline so
that if rain should penetrate the covering, water
will drain away.
Marking, Cutting & Drilling
• The storage site should be inspected regularly to
ensure moisture has not penetrated the stack. If
moisture has gotten between panels they should
be separated and dried immediately. ZINCALUME
Steel must not ot come in contact with wet cement
or concrete. If contact occurs remove immediately.
Black lead pencils should never be used for marking
ZINCALUME Steel products as the carbon in the pencil
will promote corrosion which will etch the surface
leaving a permanent mark. Use any other color pencil
but black. Cut and drill pre-painted steel with care to
avoid marking the high quality surface. Use a hand
shear or nibbler instead of a friction blade to avoid
damaging the ZINCALUME Steel or paint coating.
Remove all debris and metal filings as soon as possible.
INSTALLATION GUIDELINES
Fasteners - Placement, Size, Type,
Life Expectancy & Compatibility
• Use only dry, untreated lumber spacers for block
stacking.
The security of a roof is no better than its fasteners.
Correct choice and placement ensures fasteners are
placed in effective positions. The use of nails is not
advised for roofing and siding profiles. Screw type
fasteners with washers are recommended and have
been proven to have 2 to 3 times the holding power
of nails. Care should be taken not to under-drive,
or over-drive screws. Large washers are necessary
when hurricane conditions apply to the location. This
prevents screws being pulled through sheeting under
high lift forces.
Allowance for Expansion
All roofing and cladding will expand and contract
with changes in temperature. Fastening/Fastener
attachment systems used must accommodate the
expansion to avoid problems of “canning”, ponding or
roof noise. Expansion tables are usually available from
the panel manufacturer.
Handling
Handle panels carefully. Do not drag or slide sheets
over other products or rough surfaces. Equipment and
materials placed on to the roof should be clean and
care taken to prevent damage to the surface.
Fasteners used for external fixing of roofing and siding
products must be compatible with
ZINCALUME Steel and have a life expectancy
comparable with the ZINCALUME Steel panel.
Long panels are best lifted with the aid of a lifting
boom. Flat, rubber soled footwear should be worn when
walking on a roof. Shoes should be cleaned before
going up on the roof.
Our recommendations on type and compatibility of
fasteners are published in Technical Bulletin #3
“Fastener Selection for ZINCALUME Steel Roof & Siding Products”.
Bare ZINCALUME Steel is prone to fingerprinting
and hand printing. ZINCALUME Plus Steel, which

and present an unsightly appearance. Fasteners made
of some alloy materials are highly corrosion resistant in
their own right but a galvanic couple may occur when
they are in contact with ZINCALUME Steel. This may
cause an increased rate of corrosion of the steel around
the fasteners. Screw manufacturers/suppliers should be
consulted to ensure correct usage.
There are basic facts regarding compatibility of metal
products that are usually predictable and well documented. These have been summarized into a few simple rules for roof installers in Technical Bulletin #2 “Flashing
Materials for Bare & Pre-painted ZINCALUME Steel” which covers this topic in much more detail. The mix of incompatible metals or materials with dissimilar service life
is poor practice and will significantly affect service life.
Correct choice of sealants to suit materials and location is important. Sealants containing amine or acidic
acid should never be used. High quality sealants, such
as neutral cure silicones, provide good performance
in most applications. They may cost a little extra but
are a good investment. Recommendations on sealant
selection are covered in Technical Bulletin #5 “Sealants for
ZINCALUME Steel.”
Clean-up
After erection has been completed the roof panels and
gutters should be swept to remove dirt and debris such
as unused fasteners, metal filings, pop-rivet stems, and
pieces of flashing. The shank of a fastener left lying on
a roof will rust very quickly and will run down onto the
panel causing an unsightly stain. The process of cutting roof and wall sheeting to size with discs, or drilling
to fix with fasteners, can create debris which is unsightly and can create localized corrosion and shorten
the service life. Technical Bulletin #4 “Prevention of Damage to
Steel Roof & Siding Products from Metal Filings” covers this in
greater detail.
Mud and dirt tracked onto the roof panels, and greasy
hand and footprints, can be removed by washing with
a cleaner consisting of 1/3 cup mild detergent in one
gallon of water applied with a mop or soft broom.
The roof should then be thoroughly rinsed with water.
High pressure spray applications and strong alkaline
detergents should not be used. If washing with a
detergent solution is found to be inadequate, solvents
such as mineral spirits can be used to remove more
stubborn stains. More aggressive and highly volatile
solvents such as acetone or toluene should be avoided
for safety reasons, as well as their incompatibility with
many paint systems used on building panels. The
compatibility of any solvent on paint should be tested
or known prior to its use. Tri-sodium phosphate (TSP)
cleaners should not be used.

itself to protect the lower. A simple guideline to follow is
to remember that water can flow downhill but not uphill.
Zinc to copper is acceptable but copper to zinc is not.
The preferred flashing material for ZINCALUME
Steel is either bare or painted ZINCALUME Steel. The
following guidelines have been provided to assist in the
informed use of other materials where necessary.
®
Catchment (Caution When Combining Different
Roofing Systems)
COMPATIBILITY
Care should be taken when combining products on a
roof system. If products are combined incorrectly severe localized corrosion may occur as a result of “inert
catchment.”
Galvanic Corrosion
Due to a phenomenon known as galvanic or bi-metallic
corrosion, some commonly used metals can cause accelerated corrosion when used with ZINCALUME Steel zinc/
aluminum alloy-coated and pre- painted sheet. The field
of corrosion study has defined an “activity” scale shown
in Table 1 which shows zinc and aluminum more active
than copper, lead or stainless steel. The farther apart on
the scale, the more dissimilar and the stronger the potential for reaction between the metals. When a galvanic
“couple” is formed by electrical contact the more active
metal will sacrifice itself (or dissolve) to protect the less
active component of the couple.
The zinc coating on galvanized steel products develops a
protective surface film as a result of natural weathering.
This provides the longevity of performance which is typically known of galvanized products. When flowing over
galvanized roofing rainwater dissolves small amounts of
minerals and salts from the zinc surface. These minerals
and salts promote and maintain the protective film and
enhance the corrosion resistance of other galvanized
steel products such as gutters and valleys.
When rainwater flows over or is collected from roofing
materials which do not promote this protective film (inert
materials) accelerated corrosion of unpainted galvanized
steel roofs and gutters can occur. Examples of inert
materials include ZINCALUME Steel, pre-painted steel,
acrylic, glazed tiles, aluminum, fiberglass and PVC.
ZINCALUME Steel will experience accelerated corrosion
when in contact with copper (including copper treated
lumber) or lead. Leeching from copper will result in
especially high levels of corrosion. The protective oxide
film which naturally forms on aluminum surfaces is
broken down by copper or lead in localized areas. Pitting
corrosion ensues which is a highly accelerated form of
attack. Zinc coatings are not generally subject to pitting
when in contact with the same materials.
• Unpainted galvanized steel must not be used for
roofing or rainwater goods (including valleys and
gutters) to collect water runoff from ZINCALUME
Steel or any other inert material.
Rainwater Runoff
The galvanic scale in Table 1 is also important when
considering runoff from one material to another. If any
two of these materials are in damp contact or a runoff
situation, the metal higher on the table will sacrifice

any inert catchment material. ZINCALUME Steel
gutters will typically give a longer service life than
traditional galvanized steel.
Steel must should not come in either direct contact
with or water runoff from copper treated lumber. Hot
water discharge pipes should be extended beyond the
roof, preferably to ground. Every effort must be made
to prevent the overflow of water from copper pipes onto
the roof and gutter material.
Standing Water
New applications for standing seam metal roofing have
required roof slopes be minimized to as low as 1/4:12.
An area of a roof can be almost flat depending on
the particular building. These conditions can create
areas where water can collect and remain for extended
periods of time with possibility of accelerated corrosion. Where an unfavorable galvanic couple exists, the
presence of standing water for prolonged periods will
allow the corrosion reaction to continue for a longer
time than it normally would. In cases where an adverse
couple does not exist, enough water can complete the
necessary electrical contact and corrosion will proceed
as long as the water maintains the circuit.
Lead
Lead is the only metal generally considered to be
compatible with zinc-coated steel but not with bare
or pre-painted ZINCALUME Steel. ZINCALUME Steel,
in contact with or receiving run-off water from lead is
prone to corrosion. In the event of roof retrofit where
lead already exists and its re-use is desirable, the
ZINCALUME Steel must be insulated from the lead
by a suitable barrier. This can be achieved by painting
the underside of the lead or preferably both surfaces to
ensure complete electrical separation. Plastic film can
also be used provided it is robust enough and will not
tear, e.g., polyethylene damp course placed between
the lead and ZINCALUME Steel sheet (with paint on
top), is a better alternative.
The appearance of roofing panels can suffer even
when all materials within a water-ponding area are
compatible. Aluminum-coated steel panels are not
as resistant to standing water as ZINCALUME Steel.
When the aluminum-coated panel begins to rust, the
standing water can disperse and deposit rust particles on an adjacent ZINCALUME Steel sheet panel,
resulting in an unsightly stain.
Lead in the water run-off should be avoided by painting
the top surface of the lead flashing. The lead supplier
should be contacted for advice as to a suitable finish
coat barrier system and the ongoing maintenance requirements. Applying two or three coats of water-based
acrylic is generally suitable but any painting must be
maintained so it will not break down and expose any of
the lead surfaces.

ZINCALUME® Steel
Fastener Selection for ZINCALUME® Steel Roof & Siding Products
INTRODUCTION
Careful consideration should be given not only to the
expected performance of the head of the fastener,
but the shank as well. This applies particularly if the
shank of the fastener could be subject to the effects
of aggressive substances, such as acid or chemical
fumes or to prolonged humidity and condensation for
example, within the confines of a building.
Roofing, siding and accessory products manufactured from ZINCALUME® Steel will give long, trouble- free service when exposed to the atmosphere
in environments ranging from benign to severe in
terms of corrosive effect. The selection of the appropriate form of fastener is a task, however, which
should not be solely influenced by cost. Fastener
costs are minimal relative to the overall cost of a
project and there is little benefit gained through the
use of inferior fasteners.
Fastener size, strength and correct fastening pattern
are critical and are recommended by the
panel manufacturer.
Guidelines for Appropriate Fasteners
Guidelines for Installation of Fasteners
The expected service life of the fastener should meet
or exceed that of the ZINCALUME Steel components
used in the construction. The severity of environmental conditions and the corrosion resistance of the
fastener should be considered.
Do not overdrive screws or drive at an angle. This can
result in the washer piercing the steel panel or no longer
mating with the area around the hole. The ZINCALUME
Steel coating will protect the damaged area for some
time; however, rust may prematurely occur depending
on how much steel is exposed and on the local environment. Overdriving a fastener can also cause a depression
in the panel which can collect water and create localized
ponding. Driving tools equipped with depth sensing nose
pieces and suitable RPM speeds can assist in avoiding
these problems. Impact type tools should not be used.
The fastener must be compatible with the ZINCALUME Steel components. When a more active metal is placed in direct electrical contact with another
less active material the more active component will
sacrifice itself to prevent the other from corroding.
This is known as dissimilar metal contact or galvanic
corrosion and can be extremely aggressive under certain conditions. Galvanic corrosion can be much faster
in corrosive environments such as acid rain due to the
increased conductivity of the electrolyte or rainwater. For this reason lead, copper and copper containing
alloys (such as Monel) should not be used in conjunction
with ZINCALUME Steel. Stainless steel should not be
used in severe environments as the ZINCALUME Steel
alloy coating can corrode sacrificially. Refer to Table
3 to ensure the fastener of your choice is compatible
and has sufficient durability.
Washers - The rubber washer component of self-drilling
screws must be manufactured from materials compatible
with the roofing material. Washers containing significant
levels of conductive carbon black fillers should not be
used with ZINCALUME Steel products. The use of carbon
or graphite washers may lead to galvanic corrosion, especially in corrosive atmospheres. Black neoprene rubber
is not recommended in any environment as they contain
carbon pigmentation which can also cause galvanic corrosion. Neoprene rubber other than black is acceptable.

Prevention of Damage to ZINCALUME® Steel Roofing & Siding
Products from Metal Filings
INTRODUCTION
Where possible, cutting should be minimized by using
factory supplied cut-to-length sheets.
Steel filings, or swarf, are typically created from cutting or piercing operations when using friction saws,
abrasive discs, drills etc., on steel roofing and siding
products. This debris in addition to other discarded
steel objects such as rivet shanks, nails, screws and
nuts, which may come in contact with coated products; (i.e. pre-painted steel, ZINCALUME® Steel) are
the subject of this bulletin.
Sheets cut on site should, where practical, be cut on
the ground, with the exterior color finish of pre- painted
sheet facing down. Care should be taken to ensure hot
filings do not come into contact with nearby pre-paint
steel sheets. Do not cut over the top of other coated
products, where debris may fall onto other sheets.
Where cutting must be carried out near sheets already
installed, the area around the cut must be covered and
the stream of hot particles directed away from completed work. Field cut edges should be concealed under
ridge caps or gable flashings whenever possible.
These particles, if left on the surface, will corrode and
cause rust stains which will detract from the finished appearance of a project. These stains are often mistaken for
early deterioration of the roofing or siding itself. Prevention of such staining is the responsibility of the installer
and it is strongly suggested that the recommendations
contained in this bulletin be followed.
Drilling
The area around the hole should be covered to shield
the product from hot metal filings.
Metal debris will come in contact with coated steel sheet
products in three ways.
Installation
Smooth soled shoes should be worn when working on a
roof; avoid the ribbed type which will carry metal filings
and other objects.
• Loose particles left after cutting, drilling and riveting
operations.
• Hot metal filings from disc cutting or drilling
operations which may adhere to the finished surface.
Clean Up
• Loose particles which may be ground in underfoot or
become embedded in the surface film of pre- painted
products under pressure from adjacent equipment or
materials.
Metal debris/filings should be swept or hosed from the
job progressively and certainly at the end of each day.
This action will remove loose particles. Maximum care
should be taken when attempting to detach filings
which have become stuck; this can be done, but no
action which is likely to remove paint or metal coatings
should be attempted. Any damage to these coatings
will lead to reduced life of the material. When sweeping or hosing into a gutter, clean out the gutter before
leaving the job in order to prevent premature corrosion.
PREVENTION
Cutting
Use of a power saw with a metal cutting steel blade is
the best way to cut sheets on site. This method generates larger and cooler particles than abrasive discs.

Repair of ZINCALUME Steel Sheet
On completion of the job give a final wash or sweep
down. For critical applications, inspection of the job
should be made after two weeks when rain or condensation will have caused any remaining filings or debris
to rust, and will highlight affected areas.
Brush the surface with a stiff bristle (not metallic wire)
brush to dislodge particles which must then be completely removed. Wire brushing will mar the appearance
of the sheet if brushing is not followed by painting. If
the coating is severely damaged by corrosion, the area
should be painted. Please contact Steelscape to discuss the correct coating to repair the damaged area.
Note: Many staining problems arise not from
installers, but from other contractors working in the
vicinity. Architects and builders need to be aware of
this possibility and warn contractors accordingly.
REPAIR OF PRE-PAINTED SHEET
Mild Staining
Identification
Fresh stains are characterized by small red-brown
colored areas with a central dark spot (the remains of
the steel particles). The surface will feel like sandpaper, and the particle may be lifted with a fingernail. An
old stain will appear as a localized red-brown stain, the
steel particle having corroded away, and the surface
will be smoother.
A household cream cleanser, used according to directions, will remove most mild staining from metal debris
(one cup of mild, common detergent which contain
less than 0.5% phosphate, dissolved in warm water are
usually effective). Avoid the use of aggressive cleaners
such as TSP.
Effect on Performance
• Clean the surface by washing with a nonionic
industrial or household detergent and water in
proportions as recommended by the detergent
manufacturer. Wash well with clean water.
Severe Staining
The effect of staining itself on Steelscape prefinished
products is generally aesthetic, and may not be detrimental to the performance of the product. The product
life will be severely affected where attached metal particles have penetrated the pre-painted film and are in
contact with the protective metallic coating, although
this only occurs in severe cases. This is because on
pre-painted surfaces red oxides of iron are normally
inert substances and do not attack the finish; the stain
is merely absorbed by the finish. Red oxides of iron are
insoluble in water and the stain will take considerable
time to weather away.
• Remove the corrosion product by using a stiff
nylon brush and washing off completely. More
heavily affected areas may need a light rub
with a Scotch guard tape pad (not steel wool).
Abrasive papers should only be used if repainting
is to be carried out.
• Great care must be taken not to cause damage to
the paint film.
• Hose down the affected area completely after
treatment.
On metallic coatings, concentrated corrosion can occur
over a small area as the zinc in the coating sacrifices
itself to prevent oxidation of both the debris and, if
allowed to continue, exposed areas of the steel base.
• This treatment will normally leave only very mild
stains.

Sealants for ZINCALUME® Steel
INTRODUCTION
This bulletin provides background information relating to
sealants and their application when used in conjunction
with the range of exterior ZINCALUME® Steel products
produced by Steelscape. The sealant industry in the US
produces a wide variety of building sealants which together embrace a multitude of end user applications and an
even greater range of specific conditions.
Neutral cure silicone rubber sealants will typically meet
the performance characteristics outlined above for most
applications. Other generic types of sealant such as
polyurethane and butyl elastomers are readily available
in tape, hot melt and cartridge forms. Once again the
performance of these systems should be evaluated with
your sealant supplier based on service condition and
performance characteristics. The use of sealants means
fastening, whether by integral forming or by individual
fasteners is necessary where metal to metal joining is
involved. For more information on fasteners and ZINCALUME
Steel, please refer to Technical Bulletin #3, “Fastener Selection for
ZINCALUME Steel Roof & Siding Products.”
Sealant Selection
The decision on which sealant is the most effective for
ZINCALUME Steel products in a specific application
should be based on several performance characteristics.
Physical Property
Performance Characteristic
of Sealant
Adhesion
Flexibility
Good adhesion to bare and pre-painted ZINCALUME Steel, without pre-priming except in extreme service conditions.
No cracking or loss of adhesion during required bending at specified service temps.
Weatherability
No cracking, chalking, bleeding or loss of rubber characteristics after exposure to the damaging effects of
ultra-violet rays (sunlight) and humidity.
Water Resistance
Adhesion to metal surface will not deteriorate after immersion in water.
Chemical Resistance Good resistance to water, ozone, water vapor, and other chemicals that may be exposed to the sealant in service.
Non Corrosive*
Will not deteriorate, darken, etch or salt deposit bare or pre-painted ZINCALUME steel.
Staining
No contact or migratory staining of the bare or pre-painted ZINCALUME steel surface.
Non Sagging
Will retain original shape within the joint at specified service temperatures w/o sagging.
Printability
Over paintable if required.
*Note: Sealants containing acetic acid or amines should not be used on ZINCALUME Steel; wet conditions during early stages of sealant cure
can liberate by-products potentially corrosive towards protective coatings. These often smell of vinegar or ammonia.

ZINCALUME® Steel
Cut Edge Protection of ZINCALUME® Steel
INTRODUCTION
The severity of the intended application should dictate
the coating class specified. Heavier coating thicknesses
should be used in more severe environments.
The single aspect most frequently vexing prospective
users of zinc-coated and zinc/aluminum alloy- coated
steel sheet is cut edge performance. It is an established fact the sacrificial protection afforded to the
steel at cut edges will delay corrosion while there is
zinc or zinc/aluminum alloy left in the vicinity of the
edges. Almost every metal coated steel product has cut
edges and when piercing occurs within the area of the
sheet a further “cut” edge is generated.
Two Way Protection
The zinc/aluminum alloy metallic coating performs in
two ways:
• The aluminum acts as a barrier when the steel
base is completely enclosed by the coating.
Protection is afforded by the corrosion resistance of
the coating itself.
Prime examples of such products are roofing, guttering and spouting. These items are first slit-to-width
then cut-to-length. Holes are often pierced to accommodate fasteners; however corrosion in these areas
has never constituted a problem. Regardless of the
environment, when more metallic coating is present,
the steel has more protection both on flat unmarked
surfaces and at cut edges.
• As a sacrificial coating at edges when the barrier is
broken by slitting, shearing, piercing or scratching.
The barrier effect is universally recognized.
However, it is the sacrificial protection this bulletin
addresses.
Protection is Automatic
Measure of Protection
Complete coating of steel sheet products is not
practical, economical or generally necessary. It is
normal practice and has been since zinc-coated
sheet has been produced, to have slit, sheared,
drilled or sawn edges.
Zinc/aluminum alloy hot dip metallic coated steel sheet
is produced by passing continuous steel strip through
a bath of molten metal. As the strip emerges from the
bath the thickness of the coating is precisely adjusted
according to the coating class required. The coating
class is a designation describing the coating type and
amount of coating applied.
In service, galvanic action causes zinc compounds to
automatically build up at cut edges and scratches by
an electrolytic reaction when water or moisture is present. These slow the rate at which the surrounding coating is consumed around damaged areas. This effect is
sometimes referred to as the “self-healing” property of
coatings containing zinc.
The coating type is generally described by the capital
letter of the chemical symbols of the metals in the
coating. The amount of coating is indicated by the
minimum “coating mass” measured by the triple spot
test specified in ASTM A792/A792M– 06.

TECHNICAL BULLETIN TB-6 ZINCALUME® Steel
Comparison of Zinc and Zinc/Aluminum Coatings
It is natural with the wide spread use of ZINCALUME®
Steel sheet in traditional zinc-coated building applications, the question of comparative cut edge performance should be raised. Unpainted ZINCALUME Steel
will perform in a very similar manner to zinc-coated
sheet in the relatively thin range of thickness associated with roofing, wall cladding, gutters and down-pipes.
This has been tested by removing coating of similar
thickness from ZINCALUME Steel and galvanized sheet
down to the steel base, using scribe marks ranging
from .016" to .16" in width. When exposed to the
atmosphere, the differences in the samples are slight,
particularly at the thinner scribe marks.

Guidelines for Welding ZINCALUME® Steel
INTRODUCTION
well as the coating alloying with the electrode material.
These factors require the electrodes be redressed more
frequently than is the case with uncoated steel. The
electrode tips should be redressed periodically, but the
time between re- dressings depends on the sheet thickness and conditions of use. Additional factors influencing electrode life are proper tip alignment and sufficient
water cooling (minimum 2 gal/min) to the electrode.
ZINCALUME Steel can be readily welded using resistance and arc welding techniques. Utilizing conventional
welding techniques along with the guidelines given below,
ZINCALUME Steel can be as easily welded as other coated sheet products. In general, the Al/Zn coating is soft
and conductive compared to uncoated sheet steel and,
therefore, requires higher welding currents, welding times
and electrode forces for resistance welding. The parameters used for successfully welding ZINCALUME Steel
sheet are very similar to those for galvanized sheet.
®
The peel test, which is commonly used as a measure
of nugget size and weld soundness, can be used to test
the quality of spot welds on ZINCALUME Steel sheet.
Test specifications vary among manufacturers, but in
general, two coupons are welded together and then
peeled apart. Under proper welding conditions, failure
should occur around the weld, not through the weld.
The nugget diameter should approximate the diameter
of the electrodes.
Spot Welding
The optimum tip geometry which provides the longest
electrode tip life when spot welding ZINCALUME Steel
sheet is the truncated cone with either a 90° or 120°
included angle. Pointed, domed or radius electrodes
should be used only where necessary for reasons of
access or alignment.
Seam Welding
The conditions for seam welding ZINCALUME Steel
sheet are similar to those for galvanized steel in that
higher currents and closer control of welding schedules
are required than for uncoated sheet steel. Intermittent
current feed is preferred over continuous current and
0.5-inch radius faced electrodes can be used for all
sheet thicknesses if desired.
Testing has shown that a dispersion-strengthened copper
alloy electrode will provide superior electrode life and
welding characteristics when compared to RWMA Class 2
Cu-Cr or Cu-Zr alloys. Typical spot welding schedules for
ZINCALUME Steel sheet are given below:
Electrode maintenance is also important in spot welding
coated sheet steels. The parameters given above will
cause gradual deformation of the contact surfaces as

suggested in the table above. As with the spot welding
schedules, the conditions below may need alteration
depending on the job.
welding, a mild steel wire should be used with Ar/1%
02 or Ar/CO2 shielding gas. Gas containing Ar provides
a more stable arc resulting in better bead appearance
and significantly less weld spatter. When a backup plate
is used, the plate should be grooved under the weld to
provide better penetration and venting of fumes from the
underside of the weld.
Seam welding wheels should be RWMA Class 2 copper
alloy. Knurled wheels are preferred because the knurled
drive rollers continuously remove pick-up from the sheet
coating and maintain a constant face width, thus eliminating the need for redressing. The electrode wheels in
the weld area should be flushed with water during welding
to provide adequate cooling.
Fuming
ZINCALUME Steel has been fabricated into products
such as tubing using both high-frequency and low frequency welding techniques. Standard procedures similar
to those employed for galvanized or aluminum coated
steels are used. Since the coating may smear at sheared
or slit edges, it may be necessary to scrape the sheet
edges prior to welding.
In arc welding, the total weight of evolved fumes per
unit weld area for ZINCALUME Steel sheet is 25 percent
of the amount for galvanized. The ratio of the amount of
zinc oxide released from ZINCALUME Steel is only 20
percent of the amount released from galvanized sheet.
The decreased fuming of ZINCALUME Steel represents
a reduced fume hazard to welders, but the extent of
fuming is still sufficient to require the use of fume hoods
and/or forced exhaust systems. Fuming during resistance welding is very slight and special exhaust systems
should not be needed.
Arc Welding
Corrosion Resistance of Welds
Gas tungsten-arc (TIG) welding of ZINCALUME Steel
is not recommended because, as with galvanized sheet
steel, fumes generated during welding tend to contaminate the tungsten electrode and cause instability of the
arc. Shielded metal-arc welding is best accomplished
using E60XX electrodes, such as E6010, E6011 or
E6012. A whipping technique is often used to burn off
the coating ahead of the puddle. For gas metal-arc (MIG)
As is the case with other coated sheet steels, spot and
seam welding may remove the coating from ZINCALUME
Steel sheet exposing the base steel. These areas may
be too large to be galvanically protected by the adjacent
coating and should be covered with metal-sprayed zinc or
aluminum, zinc-rich paint or organic coating. Covering the
weld area of arc welds is especially important because the
damage to the coating is even more severe.

Unsuitable Applications for ZINCALUME® Steel
INTRODUCTION
a structure; however we recommend the following
guidelines
ZINCALUME® Steel has proven to exhibit superior
corrosion resistance in a diverse range of environments
including those in rural, industrial, marine and severe
marine regions of the country.
Atmospheric corrosion testing for more than 30 years has
clearly shown that ZINCALUME Steel has at
least 2-4 times the life span of galvanized G90 in these
environments. However, with even the most revolutionary
materials there are specific end user applications into
which ZINCALUME Steel should not be placed without
careful consideration as to the ultimate performance.
• ZINCALUME Steel (bare or painted) should not
be used for cattle, pig or poultry confinement
due to the risk of the corrosive process outlined
above. Heavy zinc coated galvanized or aluminum
products should be used for these applications.
• ZINCALUME Steel will perform favorably in the
majority of other agricultural applications. Such
structures include storage sheds, silos, grain bins
and other utility farm buildings.
These applications, and issues to be considered within
these applications, are summarized in this
Technical Bulletin to assist in the correct selection of
materials.
Concrete
ZINCALUME Steel is not suitable for use with wet
concrete mixtures (including mortar or stucco). It
is not recommended for use in framework and floor
deck applications. The aluminum in the ZINCALUME
Steel coating will react with the wet concrete leaving
the coating porous and prone to corrosion. Adhesion
between the concrete and ZINCALUME Steel is poor
and the concrete itself can expand and lose strength.
Small splashes of concrete onto ZINCALUME Steel are
damaging, and should be removed when wet.
Animal Confinement
Structures erected to house the intensive farming
activities of pigs, cattle, turkeys and chickens can present
problems for ZINCALUME Steel. This form of animal
confinement can result in the creation of animal waste
and waste decomposition by-products which can be
extremely aggressive towards ZINCALUME Steel, creating
significant corrosion problems.
Culverts
Waste decomposition gases such as methane, hydrogen
sulfate and ammonia can combine with water vapor to
form a highly corrosive compound which condenses on
the bottom side of the steel roof panel, resulting in an
extremely corrosive attack. Direct contact with animal
wastes should be avoided regardless of the type of
material employed in the construction of the building.
Good panel insulation, ventilation and frequent waste
removal will assist in maintaining the longevity of such
ZINCALUME Steel is not recommended for applications
involving burial in the earth or soil. Soils vary widely in
moisture content, acidity or alkalinity. Objects buried in
the soil can be subject to bacterial activity and oxygen
levels can be highly variable. ZINCALUME Steel is
more sensitive to low oxygen levels and lack of passivity
than galvanized products, hence heavy coating mass
galvanized would be the recommended product under
these conditions.

Miscellaneous Sources
of Aggressive Substances
The following specific applications should also be
treated with caution. Contact Steelscape to seek advice
on the correct material to use in these instances.
• Some chemical, food processing and acid pickling
plants where chemicals, acids and alkalis are present
such that when combined with water vapor and dew
point effect.
• Direct contact with or runoff from green lumber or
chemically treated lumber containing copper. A
white paper on ZINCALUME Steel contact with
pressure-treated wood is available upon request.
Where copper/chrome/arsenate treated lumber is
specified it must be well dried after treatment and
insulated from the roof.
• Copper containing mildew inhibitors, such as
copper oxychlorate, should not come in contact with
ZINCALUME Steel. Rinse immediately if contact
occurs.
• Dirt, leaves and build-up of organic matter.
• Avoid direct contact with the ground/soil, foundations
or sills.
• Food or beverage container or contact should be
avoided. The surface treatments used in ZINCALUME
Steel can become soluble when in contact with food
acids.
• Sustained or frequent temperatures in excess of
390°F should be avoided with ZINCALUME Plus
Steel (acrylic coated).

ZINCALUME® Steel
Guidelines to the Effective Use of ZINCALUME® Plus Steel
INTRODUCTION
The standard ZINCALUME Plus Steel coating is a
specially formulated water-based resin film, which is
factory applied over the ZINCALUME Steel surface. In the
cured state the coating is colorless, odorless and imparts
a satin finish to the surface of the product. It aids in
the roll forming process often eliminating the need for
lubricants and also prevents fingerprinting.
recommendations are followed and appropriate
consideration is given to environmental conditions,
end use, location and product application. Traditionally
ZINCALUME Steel requires the surface to be painted also
be washed with a suitable solvent to remove traces of
residual roll forming lubricant, and suitable metal primer
be applied before the application of a decorative topcoat.
The clear resin film is applied wet, using state-of-the-art
roll coaters installed between the chromate application
station and the delivery section. The roll coaters are
similar in design and operation to those used on a coil
coating line. The film is cured using computer controlled
ovens. This ensures that optimum coating properties are
achieved prior to rewinding and shipping.
ZINCALUME Plus Steel removes the requirement to
use solvent to clean up surfaces. A simple detergent
wash is satisfactory, and eliminates the need to prime
the surface. Solvents or harsh chemical cleaners
should not be used. ZINCALUME Plus Steel can be
readily over-painted with a high quality water based
acrylic topcoat without priming, provided a lubricant
has not been used in the forming process and the
surface is clean and dry.
The resin film has excellent adhesion to the substrate
with very good impact resistance and flexibility. When
it is used without post painting, the natural weathering
process will gradually erode the clear coating from
the surface over a period of 12-18 months, without
powdering, peeling or cracking. No significant changes in
surface appearance will be evident.
Solvent based finish coat systems may be used, however,
these must be applied after the material has been
primed with a water based, solvent resistant primer. If
the material is correctly primed a number of coats may
be applied. Surface preparation and priming must be in
accordance with the paint manufacturer’s instructions.
In addition to the standard ZINCALUME Plus coating,
we also offer a resin film designed specifically for enduse applications that involve adhesives such as plywood
sandwich panels and foam insulation. A Steelscape Sales

right for any specific end-use application.

• Less Slippery - The resin film is less slippery than
a lubricated steel surface particularly with the
absence of residual lubricant left over from roll
forming. This will make the product safer to walk
on while installing, particularly in wet conditions.
water wash serve as the only pretreatment step, rather
than another form of solvent-based cleaning solution.
Condensation can also occur on tightly bundled stacks
of sheets or panels of ZINCALUME Steel. In its very
early stages, it may appear as a white stain similar to
the white oxide that can form on galvanized steel. Even
pre-painted and roll formed ZINCALUME Steel sheet is
not immune to this type of oxidation.
• Improved Final Appearance - Residual lubricants
can often create a patchy visual appearance as the
result of uneven drying off of the lubricant. This
problem can usually be avoided with ZINCALUME
Plus Steel.
Roll forming Characteristics
Lubricants are rarely required during the roll forming
of ZINCALUME Plus Steel because the clear resin
film acts as a solid lubricant. The need for additional
lubricant must be determined, however, on a case
by case basis. Variables to be considered include roll
former design, (number of stands and severity of each
incremental shape change) speed, surface condition of
rolls and general machine maintenance.
Resistance to Marking
ZINCALUME Plus Steel resists marking and stains
occurring during manufacturing, handling or fixing.
The coating acts as a surface sealant, protecting the
metal surface from hand and boot prints. CAUTION during transportation of coil, sheets or formed panels,
galling or abrasion of the resin coating can occur when
one resin surface vibrates, or rubs, excessively against
another resin surface. It will present as black marks,
which are often mistaken for black rust, but it is not
rust. Galling of the resin surface is strictly aesthetic
in nature; the long term performance of the product is
unaffected.
Most common roof and sidewall trapezoidal shapes
do not require additional lubrication if the roll former
is well maintained and correctly set up. Very severe
profiles may require a small amount of spot lubricant at
the heaviest worked points.
Wet Stack Storage Stain Resistance
BENEFITS OF USING
ZINCALUME PLUS STEEL:
The resin coating has an increased resistance to wet
stack storage stain. Such stains appear black, and are
caused when the material is packaged and subjected
to moisture ingress between production and final
use. The coating acts as a barrier coat, preventing
any chemical action from occurring. Recommended
storage should still be followed as outlined in Technical
Bulletin #1 “General Guide to Good Practice in the Use
of ZINCALUME® Steel for Roofing & Siding Products” and
Technical Bulletin #10 “Prevention of Oxide Formation
(Black Rust) on ZINCALUME Steel During Transportation,
Processing and Storage”.
• No Pickup - The reduction or absence of pickup
during forming due to the resin film means the
reduction or elimination of time-consuming
cleanup.
• Increased Tool Life - Reduced pickup combined
with the lubricating benefits of the resin film will
contribute to improved tool life in manufacturing
and roll forming applications.
• Scheduling Flexibility - ZINCALUME Plus Steel
can typically be roll formed interchangeably with
pre-painted feed avoiding the need for intermediate
roll cleaning. This provides greater scheduling
flexibility.
INSTALLATION OF ZINCALUME PLUS STEEL
Flashings
• Removal of Hazardous Work Place Chemicals
- Hazardous substances such as kerosene and
other lubricants can be removed from the work
environment improving occupational health and
safety practices.
The recommendations for flashing ZINCALUME Plus

ventilated areas.
High Temperatures
The maximum recommended continuous service
temperature is 390°F. Service temperatures exceeding
390°F will be detrimental to the coating. Applications
requiring operating temperatures up to the 600°F
safe limit for ZINCALUME Steel should be specified
without the resin film.
Sealants
Tests show common neutral cure silicon sealants will
adhere to the resin film. The adhesion properties of the
resin film are the same as ZINCALUME Steel. Refer to
Technical Bulletin #5 for “Sealants for ZINCALUME Steel” for
additional information.
General Corrosion Characteristics
Fasteners
The ZINCALUME Plus coating does not improve the
general corrosion characteristics of ZINCALUME Steel.
As discussed in the introduction the coating degrades
when exposed to ultra violet light. The resin film will not
negatively impact the superior corrosion performance of
ZINCALUME Steel.
Recommended fasteners for ZINCALUME Plus Steel are
the same as for ZINCALUME Steel. Refer to Technical
Bulletin #3 for further information on “Fastener Selection for
ZINCALUME Steel Roof & Siding Products.”
Slitting ZINCALUME Plus Steel
Product Mixing
Where friction drag pads are used to maintain processing
tension during slitting/recoiling, pickup of the resin can
occur. Some chromate is present in this pickup, as it is
with most ZINCALUME Steel, therefore, the following
guidelines are recommended:
• Use minimal frictional forces on pads.
ZINCALUME Steel and ZINCALUME Plus Steel should
not be mixed in adjacent areas on the same
building. The different surface finishes, both in the new
and weathered conditions, will result in a contrasting
appearance which may be objectionable.
• Set minimum pad width 6" to minimize frictional
forces if drag pads are used.
Visual Reflectivity
ZINCALUME Plus Steel is no more reflective than
ZINCALUME Steel.
• Encourage use of an appropriate respiratory device
for personnel working in close proximity (4-6 Feet) if
dust is produced by the drag pad.
Electrical Conductivity
• Remove pickup from drag device and adjacent areas
using appropriately designed apparatus.
The resin film applied to ZINCALUME Plus Steel can
potentially cause an insulating effect between
panels in electrical appliance applications. The insulating
effect would normally be overcome with welding or
mechanical fastening of components. Manufacturers
should be advised to ensure products are adequately
grounded.
• Dispose of drag pads in accordance with
environmental or local regulations.
Welding
Spot, seam or gas metal arc welding can be carried out
successfully on ZINCALUME Plus Steel. Fume generation
may be slightly higher than ZINCALUME Steel without
the coating. All welding should be carried out in well

Prevention of Oxide Formation (Black Rust) on ZINCALUME® Steel
During Transportation, Processing and Storage
INTRODUCTION
ZINCALUME® Steel is a proven product exhibiting
superior long-term corrosion resistance in a multitude of
atmospheric environments. However, as with any steel
product, there are precautions which must be
observed during receiving, handling, processing,
shipping, storage and assembly of ZINCALUME Steel
products. If no precautions are taken, oxidation (i.e.
black rust) can occur. This technical bulletin briefly
describes the various sources of oxidation affecting
the typical ZINCALUME Steel end user. This technical
bulletin also provides guidelines to prevent the
occurrence of oxidation and how to potentially remove
an oxidation stain if it occurs.
excellent durability because of a protective oxide formed
when the coating comes into contact with air. However,
when moisture is in contact with the strip, and the strip
is tightly stacked or wrapped into a coil, there is no
exposure to air allowing the barrier oxide layer to form.
As a result, accelerated corrosion is initiated. Oxide stain
can occur in this type of oxygen-deficient environment in
less than 48 hours.
Condensation
Oxidation can occur due to condensation when cold
steel is moved from out of doors into a warmer building.
The moisture in the air of the warmer building can
condense on the colder steel surface. The presence of
condensation-type oxide is typically identified as a dark
gray oxidation condition which subsequently becomes
darker. It is distributed on the material in a generalized
pattern (rather than localized). A condensation-type
oxide pattern occurs inward from both edges of the strip
and is shallow in penetration from the edges.
SOURCES OF OXIDE FORMATION ON
ZINCALUME STEEL
Oxide stains can occur on either coils or tightly bundled
sheets of ZINCALUME Steel. Although oxidation of the
metallic coating is usually superficial and confined to
the extreme upper layer of the coating, it is aesthetically
displeasing and can quickly become more severe if the
cause of the stain is not removed. In the most severe
instances, there can be a weight loss of metallic coating
and a potential reduction of service life. When the cause
of an oxidation stain is removed or (in the case of a
formed panel) when affected panels are assembled at
the job site, the oxidation stain will not worsen.
Steel products must not be exposed to combinations
of temperature and humidity which can result in
condensation. Steel products should not be allowed
to vary by more than 20°F from their surrounding
environment. If an incoming shipment of ZINCALUME
Steel appears to exceed 20°F difference from the storage
environment, the product should be allowed to warm
slowly in a cooler indoor area free from cold air drafts. All
material storage areas must be properly ventilated with
adequate circulation of air. Circulation of air, however,
should not be defined as allowing doors to remain open
where moist air from the outside can enter the building
and increase the probability of condensation.
The basic cause of an oxide stain on ZINCALUME Steel
is water or moisture interacting with the metallic coating
in an oxygen-deficient environment. Under normal
service conditions, ZINCALUME Steel has

Condensation can also occur on tightly bundled stacks
of sheets or panels of ZINCALUME Steel. In its very
early stages, it may appear as a white stain similar to
the white oxide that can form on galvanized steel. Even

Wet Storage
Oxidation can occur due to transport or storage of the
steel in a wet environment. Oxidation frequently occurs
when the material comes in direct contact with water
during transportation to the end user facility or job site.
In such a situation, the material will have evidence
of water penetration by capillary action, from the side
wall of the coil or the edge of a sheet (in the case of
formed sheets). The oxide penetrates deeper into the
metallic coating and becomes more difficult to remove
than a condensation type condition. Oxide occurs
as a more localized pattern than general across the
entire surface. Oxidation also will occur within stacks
of tightly bundled sheets when the stack comes into
direct contact with water while the sheets are bundled
at the end user facility or job site. In its very early
stages, it can appear as a somewhat removable, white
stain, similar to the oxidation stain that can form on
galvanized steel. Even pre-painted ZINCALUME Steel
is not immune to wet storage oxidation.

Responsibility of the Steel Fabricator
To prevent the occurrence of an oxidation stain, the
following precautions should be practiced by a fabricator.
• Order ZINCALUME Steel product with an optimum
combination of surface treatment, oil and coil
packaging.
• Verify any transit carriers adhere to shipping
instructions and provide optimum protection to the
steel coils during transit to the fabrication plant.
• Inspect ZINCALUME Steel coils for moisture upon
arrival and stock ZINCALUME Steel coils indoors
in a clean, dry area away from any sources of
chemical pollution.
• Establish defined coil receiving inspection
procedures which establish carrier responsibility.
• Document transit-related water damage on the
manifest. Photos or video must be taken of any
questionable condition.
Other sources of oxidation could evolve during
processing of the ZINCALUME Steel itself.
Inadequately cured surface treatments or water-based
remnants of forming lubricants allowed to remain
on the surface during storage will provide entrapped
moisture for oxide formation. The net effect would be
a dark oxidation stain (rust) with a linear and blotchy
pattern not necessarily associated with the edges.
Documentation should include
the following elements:
•Weather conditions at time of delivery.
•Tarp or protective equipment conditions/
exceptions.
•Equipment conditions/exceptions.
•Coil conditions, (i.e., wet, package
damage, etc.).
PREVENTION OF OXIDE FORMATION ON
ZINCALUME STEEL
•
The Steelscape ZINCALUME Steel production process
incorporates surface passivation, resin coating and
oiling capabilities to minimize the potential of oxide
formation on the finished product during transportation
and storage. Steelscape recommends, depending on
what treatment an order has received, coils should be
properly stored no longer than the periods listed below.
Notify Steelscape as quickly as possible when
oxidation of the surface is confirmed.
• Store ZINCALUME Steel product at an even
temperature above the dew point with adequate air
circulation to prevent condensation problems.
• Remove plastic or paper packaging upon arrival, if
the storage area is heated and dry. If the material

• Use under-roof storage when possible. If the
bundles must be stored in the open on bare
ground, a plastic ground cover should be used
under the bundles to minimize condensation on
the sheets from moisture in the soil.
is wet, the sheets should be wiped dry. Wet coils
should be scheduled into production as soon as
possible.
• Inspect the storage site regularly to ensure
standing moisture has not penetrated the
ZINCALUME Steel coils.
• Elevate one end of the bundle to allow moisture to
run off rather than puddle on the top of the bundle
or between nested panels. Water resistant paper
will not keep out puddled moisture beyond its rated
moisture vapor transmission time.
• Stack the product on wood or metal skids so
that the coils are not in contact with the ground
and elevate one end of each bundle to allow any
moisture to run off rather than puddle on the top of
the bundle or between nested panels.
Removal of Oxide Stains on ZINCALUME Steel.
• Ensure ZINCALUME Steel roll formed sheets are
paper-wrapped when the sheets are not scheduled
for erection on the day of delivery.
The oxide stain (black rust) that forms on ZINCALUME
Steel sheet is primarily a hydrated aluminum oxide and
can be very difficult to remove if progressed beyond the
initial stages. In mild cases the oxide may be removed
by using a solvent, such as mineral spirits, applied to a
cloth. Mineral spirits would also be used to remove an
oxide stain from pre-painted ZINCALUME Steel without
damaging the paint. A mild, nonabrasive household
cleanser may also be successful in removing the stain
from a panel.
• Avoid using plastic material for covering. Nonbreathing materials should not be used to shroud
bundles because they tend to trap moisture.
• Verify transit carriers adhere to shipping
instructions and provide optimum protection to the
steel sheets during transit to the job site.
Note: To correctly wrap a bundle of ZINCALUME Steel
sheets, the bottom paper sheet is put in place first
and the top laps are covered smoothly with the top
covering sheet with the folds underneath the bundle.
If folded improperly, the laps on top can create a
catch for water and actually encourage accumulation
of water in transit.
In more severe cases, industrial solvents may be used.
However, as more aggressive chemicals are used to
remove the stain, there is an increased possibility for
damage to the coating itself. Harsh alkaline cleaning
solutions should never be used. High pressure sprays
should be avoided. Steel wool should never be used to
remove an oxide stain from ZINCALUME Steel since it is
too abrasive and it will leave embedded iron files causing
a cosmetically displeasing red rust condition.
Responsibilities of the Erector at the Job Site
To prevent the occurrence of an oxidation stain, the
following precautions should be practiced by an
Erector at a job site:
• Inspect bundles on arrival at the building site and
note on the delivery receipt any exceptions such as
damage, corrosion or wet material.
In all cases of oxide stain, removal of the stain will affect
the appearance of the metallic coating under and near
to the stain. The area near the stain will usually appear
duller after the stain is removed.
• Store the bundles on racks at least one foot above
ground level. Do not use uncured lumber.

ZINCALUME® Steel
Guidelines for General Field Maintenance of
ZINCALUME® Steel Roofing and Siding
INTRODUCTION
Minimum maintenance of ZINCALUME® Steel, whether
bare or pre-painted, is required. Both are highly durable
and simple maintenance by regular washing with clean
water will enhance the service life of the product and
maintain the appearance.
In cases where regular maintenance using fresh water
does not remove all dirt from the surface of the product
the following procedure should be used;
• Wash the surface with a mild solution of pure soap
or non-abrasive dish washing detergent in warm
water. Washing should be conducted with a sponge,
soft cloth or soft bristle nylon brush (no abrasive
scourers, steel wood, etc). Care should be taken not
to scuff the surface of the product.
“Unwashed areas” are areas on a building that are
sheltered from general rainfall and are therefore not
naturally washed. Condensation can be absorbed by the
dust and dirt that build up in these areas, leading to an
increase in the time that the material is in contact with
sufficient moisture to initiate corrosion. The associated
affect is exacerbated in the vicinity of a salt marine
influence, where the build-up includes marine salts and/
or other pollutants. Regular cleaning of ZINCALUME
Steel products in unwashed areas is required. Examples
include, but are not limited to, fascia, wall cladding
under eaves, garage doors, and the underside of eave
gutters, carports and patios.
Note: The use of detergents containing greater than
0.5% phosphate is not recommended for use in
general cleaning of building panels. NEVER BLEND
CLEANERS AND BLEACH.
• As an alternative one cup of household ammonia
dissolved into five gallons of water (room
temperature) could also be used.
• Using either solution work from the top to the
bottom of the panels, gently removing dirt and
debris. A low pressure spray washer may aid in
removing dirt deposits. Solvent-containing cleaners,
such as Fantastic®, are effective and can be used
without concern.
Washing should be done six monthly as a minimum.
More frequent washing may be necessary in coastal
areas or where high levels of industrial fallout/pollution
occurs.
• If mildew or other fungal growth is a problem and
cannot be removed, a mix of household bleach, one
gallon to five gallons water, together with one cup of
mild soap (Ivory® is recommended), can be used.
Cleaning
While factory-applied finishes for metal building panels
are so durable that they will last many years
longer than ordinary paints, it is desirable to clean them
thoroughly on a routine basis whenever the finish is
not washed by rain. Cleaning will generally restore the
appearance of these buildings and render repainting
unnecessary. An occasional light cleaning will also help
maintain an aesthetically pleasing appearance.
• The surface should be thoroughly rinsed with
freshwater immediately after cleaning to remove
traces of any detergent or cleaner.
Additional Maintenance
The long term performance of ZINCALUME Steel can at
55
August 2017 I Rev 1
MENU
TECHNICAL BULLETIN TB-11 ZINCALUME® Steel
times be impacted by the durability of the accessories
which are in contact with the product. For example, the
deterioration of the fasteners used can result in sacrificial
corrosion of the product in the areas immediately
adjacent to the fasteners. It is a good practice to;
• Ensure that fasteners used comply with Technical
Bulletin #3 “Fastener Selection for ZINCALUME Steel
Roof and Siding Products”
solvent to remove any rolling oils or lubricants. Rinse
thoroughly and allowed to dry completely.
• Regularly inspect the fasteners and consider
replacing any showing evidence of red rusting.
To prevent rust from forming on exposed metal, sand
the general area lightly and use a high-quality primer to
protect the exposed metal from corrosion. Allow sufficient
time (normally 24 hours) for the primer to dry before
applying the topcoat. If either red or white rust is evident,
remove as much rust as possible with a wire brush, and
then sand lightly to remove all rust. Wipe the exposed
area with mineral spirits before priming.
Minor scratches which have not left the metal substrate
exposed can be lightly sanded or buffed to create a
smoother surface. Care must be taken to avoid exposing
the substrate.
FIELD PAINTING
Pre-painted ZINCALUME Steel and ZINCALUME
Plus Steel are both coated with factory applied,
oven cured coatings. While both are intended to
be installed as is and will have long term durability
and performance, there may be instances when field
painting over the factory finish is required. The
guidelines presented here are also applicable to
bare ZINCALUME Steel. The following should be
considered;
• Air drying paints have different weathering
characteristics to pre-painted ZINCALUME Steel
and are typically not as durable. Areas field
painted with air dry paints to match adjacent
factory applied areas may weather different over
time and therefore vary in appearance.
Field Paint Types
The most suitable field paint type is generally water-based
acrylic. However, in more corrosive salt marine locations,
or for severely rusted material, it may be necessary to
choose a paint system that has enhanced corrosion
resistance such as a zinc-rich primer.
Due to ongoing improvements in paint technologies, at
any given time there are numerous potentially suitable
paint products available. It is therefore recommended
that a reputable paint supplier or contractor be consulted
to determine the most appropriate paint system for your
particular applications and environment.
• Read manufacturer’s instructions and observe them
explicitly. Thorough mixing is essential.
• The color and gloss of air dry paints may not
exactly match that of the factory applied paint.
• Field painting over the factory applied finish voids
any originally issued paint warranties.
• It is not advisable to use different brands of primers
and finishing coats in conjunction with one another.
Do not over paint water-based paints with oil or
organic solvent-type paints.
Surface Preparation
It is normal practice to ensure that any surface to be
painted is in a suitable condition for painting. The most
appropriate preparation is dependent on the age and
condition of the surface.
• At all times, avoid excessive paint film thickness
such as may occur in the valleys of formed roofing
panels.
Any dirt, debris or mildew must be removed; follow the
cleaning guidelines outlined above in this bulletin. Rinse
the surface thoroughly as residual cleaners or detergent
left on the surface could result in poor adhesion of the
field applied coating.
• When extensive areas are to be covered, spray
painting can lower cost while giving acceptable
results. The paints used, however, must be
formulated for this purpose.
• Work safely. Wear proper safety equipment;
ensure good ventilation in paint handling; avoid
unnecessary contamination of the skin.
Bare ZINCALUME Steel product should be cleaned with

TECHNICAL BULLETIN TB-11 ZINCALUME® Steel
TOUCH-UP PAINT
Paint Application
The recommended paint type for touch-ups is an
acrylic silicone paint which can be found at local paint
stores. Many panel fabricators have touch-up paint
available in their standard colors as well.
Scratches and very minor damage may occur during
handling and installation of painted roofing and
walling. In these instances, it may be desirable to use
touch-up paint to repair the blemishes. Keep in mind
touchup paints are quick fixes and when used properly
will result in satisfactory appearance. Misuse or overuse can result in spoiling the overall appearance.
Special attention should be paid to the manufacturer’s
instructions, including direct skin or eye contact,
ventilation and potential flammability. Aerosol or spray
applications are not recommended for blemish or
scratch repairs. The best tool for this type of repair is
a good quality, 1/4-in. artist brush or a pen tip type
applicator; only the narrow edge of the applicator
should actually contact the scratch or blemish. Use
touch-up paint sparingly and only to cover up those
areas where paint has been removed. Excessive use
of touch-up paint will result in a blotchy, uneven,
appearance.
Small scratches that do not penetrate through the
metallic coating of the ZINCALUME Steel and are
not noticeable from 6ft. should be left alone as the
metallic coating will protect against corrosion.
Surface Preparation
Edges of deep scratches should be lightly sanded
or “feathered” with 400 grit sandpaper. If a scratch
extends through the paint and the protective metal
layer exposing raw steel, it should be treated with a
zinc rich or similar primer before touch-up application.
If feathering and/or priming are not necessary, areas to
be touched-up should at least be wiped with mineral
spirits to remove dirt, wax or other contaminants before
colored touch-up is applied.

ZINCALUME® Steel
Guidelines to Installation of Photovoltaic Panels
on ZINCALUME Steel
INTRODUCTION
Compatibility of Materials with Roofing Made
from ZINCALUME Steel
When installing photovoltaic (PV or solar) panels to
roofing made from ZINCALUME Steel the following
installation and maintenance practices will assist in
maintaining the water tightness and durability of the
roof. This technical bulletin relates to the installation
of framed PV/solar panels mounted above ZINCALUME
Steel roofing.
Dissimilar metals, such as stainless steel, lead, brass,
copper and copper containing alloys should not be
used in direct contact, or contact that could create
an electrical connection, with roofing made from
ZINCALUME Steel. This also includes conductive
seals, washers and gaskets. Refer to Technical
Bulletin #2 “Flashing Materials for Bare and Pre-painted
ZINCALUME Steel” and Technical Bulletin #3 “Fastener
Selection for ZINCALUME Steel Roof and Siding Products”
for additional information on dissimilar metals and
galvanic corrosion.
INSTALLATION CONSIDERATIONS
Clearance Between the Panels and the Roof
PV/solar panels installed on a ZINCALUME Steel roof
shield the roof from the sun and prevent beneficial
washing from rainfall. Areas on the roof directly
beneath the panels are considered to be unwashed
and may be subject to accelerated corrosion due
the accumulation of dirt, salt and other airborne
contaminants which may retain moisture for extended
periods due to condensation or high humidity. The
provision of adequate clearance between PV/solar
panels and roofing will help to:
• Facilitate self-cleaning and limit the build-up of
leaves and other debris.
Avoid PV/solar panels, or any introduced flashings,
which utilize materials such as copper and lead as
these materials have the potential to create water runoff onto roofing made from ZINCALUME Steel resulting
in galvanic corrosion.
Ensure any sealant in contact with ZINCALUME Steel
is “neutral cure” silicone.
Timber used in direct contact with roofing made from
ZINCALUME Steel that has the potential to become
damp can result in accelerated corrosion of the roofing.
Furthermore, treated lumber has the potential to leach
and drip corrosive substances onto the roof. Use of
lumber on the top surface of the roof should be avoided.
• Provide sufficient access for the cleaning,
inspection and maintenance of the roofing
material, including removal of any accumulated
contaminants, and fasteners beneath the panels.
• Allow air flow to quickly dry areas beneath the PV/
solar panels. This may also be beneficial to the
performance of the PV/solar panels as electrical
output is usually temperature dependent.
Avoiding Potential Damage to the Roof
Foot traffic can dent, scuff, or scratch the ZINCALUME
Steel roof.
Dents may need to be rectified to avoid water ponding,
which is more likely on low pitch roofs. Ponded water
58
August 2017 I Rev 1
MENU
TECHNICAL BULLETIN TB-12 ZINCALUME® Steel
Swarf
exposes ZINCALUME Steel to an extended period of
wetness which may increase the potential for corrosion
or water ingress.
During installation swarf should be removed daily.
Refer to Technical Bulletin #4 “Prevention of Damage
to ZINCALUME Steel Roof and Siding Products from
Metal Filings” for additional information.
Scuffing is typically an aesthetic issue that is unlikely to
have any detrimental effect on the performance of roofing
made with ZINCALUME Steel.
Electrical Cables
Electrical cables should not sit directly on the roof
panels as this may lead to the accumulation of dirt,
salt and other contaminants. Cables should be
affixed to the PV/solar panel support structure.
Maintaining Water Tightness of the Existing Roof
The installation of PV/solar panels should allow for free
drainage of moisture from all surfaces. Avoid ponding
water.
Any penetrations through the roof should be placed
in such a manner so as to minimize the risk of water
ingress. Penetrations through the roofing should be
properly sealed using appropriate flashings, sleeves and/
or sealants. Non-penetrating attachment clamps are
recommended if the design allows.
Grounding
Avoid valley fixing or valley holes for electrical cables.
MAINTENANCE
PV/solar panel fasteners and brackets should be installed
away from sheet side laps as they may distort the profile
and interfere with the specifically designed anti-capillary
laps, leading to water ingress.
Unwashed areas have an increased risk of corrosion
compared to washed areas, regular cleaning is
recommended. Generally, unwashed areas should be
cleaned with fresh, potable water, at least every 3 months
for coastal or industrial areas, and at least every 6 months
in other applications. This may coincide with periodic PV/
solar panel cleaning. Maintenance should also include
an inspection of the roofing fasteners, as well as the
surface condition of the ZINCALUME Steel. For further
guidance on maintenance refer for Technical Bulletin #11
“Guidelines for General Field Maintenance of ZINCALUME
Steel Roofing and Siding”.
Ensure appropriate grounding of the PV/solar system.
Stray currents to the roof made with ZINCALUME
Steel may accelerate corrosion.
Rainwater Collection
If rainwater is collected from the roof, check with
the PV/solar panel supplier to ensure it does not
adversely affect water qualify.
Fasteners and Brackets
Fasteners and brackets used in the installation of PV/
solar panels should have a service life comparable to
the expected performance of the ZINCALUME Steel.
This includes the replacement of any corroded
roofing fasteners that will be located beneath the
new PV/solar panels.

Hawaiian Islands: Exceptions to Standard Limited Warranty,
Cleaning and Panel Design Recommendations
INTRODUCTION
and distances will be in effect. All the standard and
current ZINCALUME® steel limited warranty conditions
and provisions will apply.
The volcanic activity on the big island of Hawaii is a
unique but well understood natural feature. Two of the
primary emissions from the vents located at Kilauea are
hydrogen sulfide and sulfur dioxide. These particulates
often result in the well known island haze called VOG.
These two components when mixed with water droplets
in the surrounding air can result in the formation of
sulfuric acid which can become acid rain. Acid has
long been known to cause corrosion on ZINCALUME®
steel, both painted and bare, but historically the levels
of sulfur on the island of Hawaii has been such that
routine rainfall provided enough cleaning of roof panels
to prevent any type of premature corrosion.

Unfortunately, the situation at the Kilauea summit
has changed dramatically over recent years. The
opening of a vent at the Halema`uma`u crater in
December 2007 has resulted in a much higher level
of sulfur dioxide being released into the environment,
with a marked increase starting in March 2008. It is
estimated that an additional 750-2,000 tons/day of
sulfur dioxide is being released. Due to the increased
corrosiveness on Hawaii, Steelscape is undertaking
a large scale exposure study to determine the best
substrate, paint and panel design to minimize premature corrosion. Until the results of this study are
available, the following limited warranty exceptions and
recommendations have been developed.

and particulate matter begins to corrode the paint and
eventually the substrate.
Our field inspections conducted to date indicate
that panel design may play a significant role in the
rate of corrosion due to acid rainfall and VOG from
the volcano. Panels with an exposed cut edge and
corrugated profile tend to hold small amounts of
water and debris at the very edge due to capillary
Profiles with a hemmed drip edge allow water and
debris to flow off the panel, thus providing better longterm corrosion performance.

Section 2 - Hazards Identification
GHS Label Elements:
Hazard Pictograms:
Signal Word:
Warning
Hazard Statement:
Does not pose a health hazard in its normal form. Inhalation of metal dust and fume may result
from further processing by the user, particularly during welding, burning, grinding and machining
activities. These potential health hazards should be evaluated by the user. A non-metallic
passivation treatment is normally applied based upon customer/end use criteria. These nonmetallic coatings may contain hazardous substances of varying amounts. During processing,
substances of varying chemical composition and quantity may be generated by the surface
passivant. MSDS information regarding the surface passivant shall be supplied to the user upon
request.
Carcinogenity:
Certain chromium and nickel compounds as well as organic compounds found in various coating
materials have been listed as carcinogens by the NTP, IARC, or OSHA.
Medical Conditions Aggravated by Long Term Exposure:
Individuals with chronic respiratory disorders (i.e., asthma, chronic bronchitis, emphysema, etc.)
may be adversely affected by any fume or airborne particulate matter exposure.
Chronic Effects:
Chronic inhalation concentrations of iron oxide fumes or dusts may lead to a benign
pneumoconiosis (siderosis). Inhalation of high concentrations of ferric oxide may possibly enhance
the risk of lung cancer development in workers exposed to pulmonary carcinogens. Chronic
inhalation concentrations of aluminum fumes or dusts may lead to a fibrotic lung condition known
as Shaver.s disease; however, evidence for this is not conclusive since affected workers were
exposed to other substances (silica) as well. The inhalation of high concentrations of dust from
manganese, copper, lead and/or zinc in the respirable particle size range can cause an influenzalike illness termed metal fume fever. Typical symptoms last 12 to 48 hours and are characterized by
metallic taste in mouth, dryness and irritation of the throat, followed by weakness, muscle pain,
fever and chills. Continuous exposures to high concentrations of manganese can cause central
nervous system disorders and .manganese pneumonia.. Fibrosis of lung tissue from manganese
exposure has also been reported for products containing manganese only. Overexposure to
aluminum dust can cause shortness of breath. Long term inhalation exposure to high
concentrations (overexposure) to pneumoconiotic agents may act synergistically with inhalation of
oxides, fumes or dusts of this product to cause toxic effects. Prolonged or repeated contact with

unprotected skin may result in skin irritation. Torching or burning operations on steel products with
oil or organic coating may produce emissions which can be irritating to the eyes and respiratory
tract.
Precautionary Statement:
Inhalation of metal dust and fume may result from further processing by the user, particularly during
welding, burning, grinding and machining activities. These potential health hazards should be
evaluated by the user.

Section 4 - First Aid Measures
Eye contact:
Treat any foreign body in eye by flushing with large amounts of water. Seek medical attention
immediately.
Skin contact:
Skin hazards are not expected. However, should dermatitis develop, affected area should be
washed with mild soap and water. If irritation or other symptoms develop, seek medical attention.
Precautions should be taken to protect against sharp steel edges. If the skin is abraded by
handling, seek medical attention.
Ingestion:
Ingestion hazards are not expected.
Inhalation:
For treatment of overexposure to fumes and/or particulates, remove exposed individual to fresh air
and seek medical attention. Administer artificial respiration or oxygen if breathing is difficult or has
stopped.
Section 5 - Fire-Fighting Measures
Not flammable or combustible. Steel products in the solid state present no fire or explosion hazard and
do not contribute to the combustion of other materials.
Section 6 - Accidental Release Measures
Not applicable to this metal in its solid state. For spills involving finely divided particles, clean-up
personnel should be protected against contact with eyes and skin. If material is in a dry state, avoid
inhalation of dust. Fine, dry material should be removed by vacuuming or wet sweeping methods to
prevent spreading of dust. Avoid using compressed air. Do not release into sewers or waterways.
Collect material in appropriate, labeled containers for recovery or disposal in accordance with federal,
state, and local regulations.

Section 7 - Handling and Storage
Operations with the potential for generating high concentrations of airborne particulates should be
evaluated and controlled as necessary. Practice good housekeeping. Avoid breathing fumes and/or
dust.
Section 8 - Exposure Controls / Personal Protection
Respiratory protection:
NIOSH/MSHA approved dust and fume respirators should be used to avoid excessive inhalation of
particulates. Appropriate respirator selection depends on the magnitude of exposure.
Hand protection:
Protective gloves should be worn as required for welding, burning or handling operations. If
material is supplied with oil or other organic coating, wear protective gloves. However, do not
continue to use gloves or work clothing that have become saturated with oil. Wash hands and any
additional contact areas with soap and water or waterless hand cleaner.
Eye protection:
Use safety glasses or goggles as required for welding, burning, sawing, brazing, grinding or
machining operations.
Engineering measures:
Local exhaust ventilation should be provided when welding, burning, sawing, brazing, grinding or
machining to prevent excessive dust or fume exposure.
Personal protection equipment:
Operations with the potential for generating high concentrations of airborne particulates should be
evaluated and controlled as necessary. Avoid breathing fumes and/or dust.

TruZinc® Plus Steel
Guidelines for the Effective Use of TruZinc® Plus Steel
1.0 Properties of TruZinc Plus Steel.
clean and dry. Again, given the wide variety of available
paint systems and applications, testing for specific
compatibility is highly recommended.
The TruZinc Plus Steel coating is a specially formulated
water-based resin-chrome film, which is factory applied
over a bare TruZinc Steel surface. In the cured state,
the coating is colorless and odorless.
Solvent based finish coat systems may be used,
however, these must be applied after the material has
been primed with a compatible water based, solvent
resistant primer. If the material is correctly primed a
number of coats may be applied. Surface preparation
and priming must be in accordance with the paint
manufacturer’s instructions.
The resin film has excellent adhesion to the substrate
with very good impact resistance, flexibility, roll formability, storage stain corrosion resistance (far superior
to conventional passivation), and anti- fingerprinting
properties. When it is used without post painting, the
natural weathering process will typically not affect the
surface appearance for at least 12 months.
1.1.2 Powder Coating.
TruZinc Plus Steel is suitable for direct powder coating,
provided the surface to be coated is clean and powders
requiring a peak metal temperature in excess of 390°F
are not used. It is recommended that a brief water
wash serve as the only pretreatment step, rather than
another form of solvent-based cleaning solution. Please
contact our Sales Department to discuss a program to
trial TruZinc Plus Steel for these applications.
1.0.1 Factory Production of TruZinc Plus Steel.
The clear resin film is applied wet, using state-of-theart roll coaters. The roll coaters are similar in design
and operation to those used on a coil coating line. The
film is cured using computer-controlled ovens. This
ensures that optimum coating properties are achieved
prior to rewinding and shipping.
1.2 Roll forming Characteristics.
1.1 Field Painting Guidelines.
Lubricants are rarely required during the roll forming
of TruZinc Plus Steel because the clear resin film acts
as a solid lubricant. The need for additional lubricant
must be determined, however, on a case-by- case basis.
Variables that should be considered include roll former
design, (number of stands and severity of each incremental shape change) speed, surface condition of rolls
and general machine maintenance. Most common roof
and sidewall trapezoidal shapes do not require additional lubrication if the roll former is well maintained
and correctly set up. Very severe profiles may require a
small amount of spot lubricant at the heaviest worked
points.
1.1.1 Wet Painting.
TruZinc Plus Steel can typically be painted, provided
paint manufacturers recommendations are followed
and appropriate consideration is given to environmental
conditions, end use, location and product application.
Given the wide variety of available paint systems and
applications, testing for specific compatibility is highly
recommended. Traditionally, TruZinc Steel requires the
surface to be painted also be washed with a suitable
solvent to remove traces of residual roll forming lubricant, and suitable metal primer is applied before the
application of a decorative topcoat.
The Benefits of Using TruZinc Plus Steel Include:
TruZinc Plus Steel removes the requirement to use
solvent to clean up surfaces. A simple detergent wash
is satisfactory, and generally eliminates the need to
prime the surface. TruZinc Plus Steel can typically be
over-painted with a high quality water based acrylic
topcoat without priming, provided a lubricant has not
been used in the forming process and the surface is
• No Pickup - The reduction or absence of pickup
during forming due to the resin film means the
reduction or elimination of time-consuming
cleanup.
• Increased Tool Life - Reduced pickup combined

TECHNICAL BULLETIN TB-1 TruZinc® Plus Steel
with the lubricating benefits of the resin film will
contribute to improved tool life in manufacturing
and roll forming applications.
Steel are not subject to pitting corrosion when used
alongside lead or copper components. Similar to other
metallic building materials, TruZinc Plus Steel and
TruZinc Steel should not be used in direct contact with
green, wet or chemically treated wood products.
• Scheduling Flexibility - TruZinc Plus Steel can
typically be roll formed interchangeably with prepainted feed, avoiding the need for intermediate
roll cleaning. This provides greater scheduling
flexibility.
1.5.2 Sealants.
Experience shows that TruZinc Plus Steel is compatible
with polyurethane, PVC, and polypropylene, and
therefore would likely be compatible with common
neutral cure silicone sealants. The adhesion properties
of the resin film should be similar to TruZinc Steel.
• Removal of Hazardous Work Place Chemicals
- Hazardous substances such as kerosene and
other lubricants can be removed from the work
environment, improving occupational health and
safety practices.
1.5.3 Fasteners.
Recommended fasteners for TruZinc Plus Steel are the
same as for TruZinc Steel.
• Less Slippery - The resin film is less slippery than
a lubricated steel surface particularly with the
absence of residual lubricant left over from roll
forming. This will make the product safer to walk
on while installing, particularly in wet conditions.
1.6 Slitting TruZinc Plus Steel.
Where friction drag pads are used to maintain
processing tension during slitting/recoiling, pickup
of chrome passivant can occur. Some chromate is
present in this pickup, as it is with most TruZinc Steel,
therefore, the following guidelines are recommended:
• Improved Final Appearance - Residual lubricants
can often create a patchy visual appearance as the
result of uneven drying off of the lubricant. This
problem can usually be avoided with TruZinc Plus
Steel.
1. Use minimal frictional forces on pads.
1.3 Resistance to Marking.
2. Set minimum pad width 6" to minimize frictional
forces if drag pads are used.
TruZinc Plus Steel resists marking and stains occurring
during manufacturing, handling or fixing. The coating
acts as a surface sealant, increasing protection of the
metal surface from hand and boot marking.
3. Encourage use of an appropriate respiratory device
for personnel working in close proximity (4-6 Feet)
if dust is produced by the drag pad.
4. Remove pickup from drag device and adjacent
areas using appropriately designed apparatus.
1.4 Wet Stack Storage Stain Resistance.
The resin coating provides an increased resistance to
wet stack storage stain. Such stains appear white, gray
or black, and are caused when the material is packaged
and subjected to moisture ingress between production
and final use. The coating acts as a barrier coat,
minimizing aesthetic degradation.
5. Dispose of drag pads in accordance with
environmental or local regulations.
1.7 Welding.
Spot, seam or gas metal arc welding can be carried
out successfully on TruZinc Plus Steel with typical
resin coating weights. Fume generation may be slightly
higher than TruZinc Steel without the coating. All
welding should be carried out in well-ventilated areas.
1.5 Installation of TruZinc Plus Steel
1.5.1 Flashings.
The recommendations for flashing TruZinc Plus Steel
are the same as for TruZinc Steel. Using TruZinc Plus
Steel or TruZinc Steel in areas subject to water runoff
from ZINCALUME®, Pre-painted ZINCALUME, Prepainted TruZinc Steel or aluminum coated steel should
be avoided. TruZinc Plus Steel and TruZinc
1.8 High Temperatures.
The maximum recommended continuous service
temperature is 390°F. Service temperatures exceeding
390°F will be detrimental to the coating. Applications

requiring operating temperatures up to the 500°F
safe limit for TruZinc Steel should be specified without
the resin film.
1.9 General Corrosion Characteristics.
The TruZinc Plus coating does not improve the general
corrosion characteristics of TruZinc Steel except as
described in section 1.0. The resin coating has been
tested to 1000 hours of UV exposure with no effect on
appearance.
1.10 Product Mixing.
TruZinc Steel and TruZinc Plus Steel should not
be mixed in adjacent areas on the same building.
The different surface finishes, both in the new and
weathered conditions, will result in a contrasting
appearance, which may be objectionable.
1.11 Visual Reflectivity.
TruZinc Plus Steel reflectivity is similar to standard
TruZinc Steel.
1.12 Electrical Conductivity.
The resin film applied to TruZinc Steel can potentially
cause an insulating effect between panels in electrical
appliance applications. The insulating effect would
normally be overcome with welding or mechanical
fastening of components. Manufacturers should be
advised to ensure products are adequately grounded.

Warning
Hazard Statement:
Does not pose a health hazard in its normal form. Inhalation of metal dust and fume may result
from further processing by the user, particularly during welding, burning, grinding and machining
activities. These potential health hazards should be evaluated by the user. A non-metallic
passivation treatment is normally applied based upon customer/end use criteria. These nonmetallic coatings may contain hazardous substances of varying amounts. During processing,
substances of varying chemical composition and quantity may be generated by the surface
passivant. MSDS information regarding the surface passivant shall be supplied to the user upon
request.
Carcinogenity:
Certain chromium and nickel compounds as well as organic compounds found in various coating
materials have been listed as carcinogens by the NTP, IARC, or OSHA.
Medical Conditions Aggravated by Long Term Exposure:
Individuals with chronic respiratory disorders (i.e., asthma, chronic bronchitis, emphysema, etc.)
may be adversely affected by any fume or airborne particulate matter exposure.
Chronic Effects:
Chronic inhalation concentrations of iron oxide fumes or dusts may lead to a benign
pneumoconiosis (siderosis). Inhalation of high concentrations of ferric oxide may possibly enhance
the risk of lung cancer development in workers exposed to pulmonary carcinogens. Chronic
inhalation concentrations of aluminum fumes or dusts may lead to a fibrotic lung condition known
as Shaver.s disease; however, evidence for this is not conclusive since affected workers were
exposed to other substances (silica) as well. The inhalation of high concentrations of dust from
manganese, copper, lead and/or zinc in the respirable particle size range can cause an influenzalike illness termed metal fume fever. Typical symptoms last 12 to 48 hours and are characterized by
metallic taste in mouth, dryness and irritation of the throat, followed by weakness, muscle pain,
fever and chills. Continuous exposures to high concentrations of manganese can cause central
nervous system disorders and .manganese pneumonia.. Fibrosis of lung tissue from manganese
exposure has also been reported for products containing manganese only. Overexposure to

aluminum dust can cause shortness of breath. Long term inhalation exposure to high
concentrations (overexposure) to pneumoconiotic agents may act synergistically with inhalation of
oxides, fumes or dusts of this product to cause toxic effects. Prolonged or repeated contact with
unprotected skin may result in skin irritation. Torching or burning operations on steel products with
oil or organic coating may produce emissions which can be irritating to the eyes and respiratory
tract.
Precautionary Statement:
Inhalation of metal dust and fume may result from further processing by the user, particularly during
welding, burning, grinding and machining activities. These potential health hazards should be
evaluated by the user.

Warning
Hazard Statement:
Does not pose a health hazard in its normal form. Inhalation of metal dust and fume may result
from further processing by the user, particularly during welding, burning, grinding and machining
activities. These potential health hazards should be evaluated by the user. A non-metallic
passivation treatment is normally applied based upon customer/end use criteria. These nonmetallic coatings may contain hazardous substances of varying amounts. During processing,
substances of varying chemical composition and quantity may be generated by the surface
passivant. MSDS information regarding the surface passivant shall be supplied to the user upon
request.
Carcinogenity:
Certain chromium and nickel compounds as well as organic compounds found in various coating
materials have been listed as carcinogens by the NTP, IARC, or OSHA.
Medical Conditions Aggravated by Long Term Exposure:
Individuals with chronic respiratory disorders (i.e., asthma, chronic bronchitis, emphysema, etc.)
may be adversely affected by any fume or airborne particulate matter exposure.
Chronic Effects:
Chronic inhalation concentrations of iron oxide fumes or dusts may lead to a benign
pneumoconiosis (siderosis). Inhalation of high concentrations of ferric oxide may possibly enhance
the risk of lung cancer development in workers exposed to pulmonary carcinogens. Chronic
inhalation concentrations of aluminum fumes or dusts may lead to a fibrotic lung condition known
as Shaver.s disease; however, evidence for this is not conclusive since affected workers were
exposed to other substances (silica) as well. The inhalation of high concentrations of dust from
manganese, copper, lead and/or zinc in the respirable particle size range can cause an influenzalike illness termed metal fume fever. Typical symptoms last 12 to 48 hours and are characterized by
metallic taste in mouth, dryness and irritation of the throat, followed by weakness, muscle pain,
fever and chills. Continuous exposures to high concentrations of manganese can cause central
nervous system disorders and .manganese pneumonia.. Fibrosis of lung tissue from manganese
exposure has also been reported for products containing manganese only. Overexposure to
92
August 2017 I Rev 1
MENU
SINGLE-BILL SERVICE OFFER MANUAL - Painted Steel - SDS
aluminum dust can cause shortness of breath. Long term inhalation exposure to high
concentrations (overexposure) to pneumoconiotic agents may act synergistically with inhalation of
oxides, fumes or dusts of this product to cause toxic effects. Prolonged or repeated contact with
unprotected skin may result in skin irritation. Torching or burning operations on steel products with
oil or organic coating may produce emissions which can be irritating to the eyes and respiratory
tract.
Precautionary Statement:
Inhalation of metal dust and fume may result from further processing by the user, particularly during
welding, burning, grinding and machining activities. These potential health hazards should be
evaluated by the user.

This issue supersedes all previous issues
Pre-Painted Product
Batch to Batch Variability: “Do Not Mix” and “Directional” Paint Systems
1.0 Introduction.
on the bottomside of metallic material is highly
recommended.
Due to the chemical and physical variability within
certain paint systems and slight process equipment
changes from one production run to another, there
are some products whose appearance may not be
the same from order to order. This technical bulletin
describes those items Steelscape does not guarantee as
reproducible and guidelines for avoiding mixed orders
on jobsites.
1.2 Printcoat Paint Systems (including
Steelscape Prints®).
Printcoat paint systems consist of a base coat of color
and then a pattern of a different color over the top,
which allows two colors to be visible on the finished
product. Order to order variability in this process
originates from several sources.
1.1 Metallic/Mica Paints.
The metallic/mica family of paints is inherently variable
in appearance due to not only the physical shape of
the pigment particles but also their behavior during the
application process. The individual pigment particles
are flat in nature allowing for light to reflect off of them
at various angles. They are also typically larger in size
than non-metallic pigments. The specific orientation
of these pigment particles affects how the final paint
system appears visually to the human eye.
Print Roll Speed: The patterned roll used to create the
print effect must be moving as close to the same speed
at the coil strip during production. Although every
measure is taken to align these two speeds there are
slight differences from one production run to another
which may result in slight pattern differences.
Paint Viscosity: The viscosity of the paint being used
for the print portion of the order will vary slightly from
order to order and paint batch to paint batch. The
viscosity of the paint on the print roll will affect the
look of the final pattern; often resulting in a “lighter”
or “heavier” pattern.
The exact size and orientation of these pigment
particles cannot be completely controlled during the
paint manufacturing process, thus each paint batch of
metallic/mica paint, even though the same color may
have a slight visual difference.
Print Roll Pressure: In order for the pattern to transfer
from the print roll to the coil strip pressure is applied
between the two. The amount of pressure controls the
amount of paint film applied to the strip as well as the
look of the pattern. This pressure will fluctuate slightly
between production runs resulting in slightly different
pattern appearances.
When the paint is applied during the coil coating
process, the final directional orientation of these
pigments cannot be controlled. This results in
slight visual variations from one production run to
another, even if the same batch of paint is used. This
phenomenon is also responsible for the slight color
shift observed when viewing a metallic/mica painted
panel in the coil rolling direction versus perpendicular
to coil rolling direction. Steelscape does not accept
responsibility for material appearance when the
architectural design requires panels to be offset (i.e.
perpendicular) from adjoining panels, resulting in
visual differential in color and or reflectivity.
1.3 ReziBond®, Vintage® and TruzGuard™
Coatings.
The ReziBond, Vintage and TruzGuard coatings are
inherently variable in appearance due to the coatings’
composition and application process. The make-up of
these specialized coatings, while guaranteed within an
approved color range, cannot be completely controlled
during the paint manufacturing process. As such, each
coating batch may have a slight visual difference.
It is important that the end user does not rotate
panels in the cases of symmetrical roll form patterns
to avoid obvious color and light differential within
the structure. The use of directional arrow branding
These slight visual variations from one production run

TECHNICAL BULLETIN TB-1 Pre-Painted Product
to another can occur even if the same batch of the
coating is used. This phenomenon is also responsible
for the slight color shift observed when viewing a
coated panel in the coil rolling direction versus
perpendicular to coil rolling direction. Steelscape does
not accept responsibility for material appearance when
the architectural design requires panels to be offset
(i.e. perpendicular) from adjoining panels, resulting in
visual differential in color and or reflectivity.
If the item is a custom color or print requiring
established minimum linear feet, order slightly more
linear feet than the job requires. This will allow any
damaged or defective material to be replaced from the
same production run.
If it is absolutely necessary to use more than one order
of a metallic/mica, printcoat or specialized coating on
a job compare the different available batches carefully;
some batches may be a better match than others.
Also, using different batches on trim, accessories or
on separated portions of a building may not be visually
objectionable.
It is important that the end user does not rotate panels
in the cases of symmetrical roll form patterns to avoid
obvious color and light differential within the structure.
If a project cannot be completed without ordering
additional material, it is imperative that Steelscape
be notified of the situation and told which previous
order needs to be matched. Although Steelscape will
not guarantee a match on metallic’s/micas, print-coats
or specialized coatings, every effort will be made to
duplicate the desired color as closely as possible.
1.4 ZINCALUME or TruZinc Plus
The color of both the metallic coated substrate and
acrylic resin can vary slightly between production runs.
In addition, the spangle size on ZINCALUME varies
slightly between orders. These visual differences can
be even more apparent between suppliers.
2.0 Guidelines for Avoiding Mixed Orders
on Jobs.
Steelscape strongly recommends the use of branded,
directional arrows on metallic, micas, Vintage and
TruzGuard coated coils.
Inventory and order size are critical for ensuring that
mixed batches of variable painted and/or coated
product do not get used at a jobsite. If the paint
system or specialized coating is a standard or stock
item, order large quantities at a time; this will allow for
fewer batches in inventory and reduce the risk of mixed
orders on a job.

TruZinc® Steel
ρst = density of steel and zinc coating = 0.2833 lb/in3
χ = ordered width of steel (inches)
τ = ordered thickness of steel (inches)
δ = actual lineal feet of steel (feet)
Theoretical Minimum Weight (lb) = ρst • χ• τ• δ• 12
Gauge x Width x 12 x .2833 = TMW
Example: ordered width = 48", ordered thickness = 0.019", actual
lineal feet in coil = 5,500
TMW = 0.2833 • 48 • 0.019 • 5500 • 12 = 17,052.4 lb
Skin Passing
Skin-passing is a critical step to achieving superior surface
quality, especially for painted steel products. It is important
to define whether a product should be skin-passed when
placing an order.
Recommendations for skin-passing are as follows:
• All painted products must be skin-passed. Any question as
to skin-passing necessity should be referred to our Sales
or Technical Sales Dept. prior to placing an order.
• Resin coated products should not be skin-passed as it is
very difficult to measure the resin coating thickness
• Skin-passing produces an extra smooth bare product and
is especially beneficial for painted products.
ZINCALUME® Steel
ρst = density of steel = 0.2833 lb/in3
ρZINCALUME = density of zinc-aluminum coating = 0.1355 lb/in3
β = thickness of ZINCALUME AZ50 coating = 0.0016"
χ = ordered width of steel (inches)
τ = ordered thickness of steel (inches)
δ = actual lineal feet of steel (feet)
Theoretical Minimum Weight (lbs) = [ρst • (τ - β) + (β•
ρZINCALUME)] • χ• δ• 12
example: ordered width = 48", ordered thickness = 0.019", actual
lineal feet in coil = 5,500
TMW = [0.2833 • (0.019 - 0.0016) + (0.0016 • 0.1355)] • 48 •
5500 • 12 = 16,293 lb
Chemical-Treatment & Oiling
Chemical-treatment and oiling are also critical steps in the
metallic coating process. Both processes lengthen finished
product shelf life and help to prevent field rejections due to
rust. Oil is important in cases where resin is not available
and self-lubricating surface characteristics are desired. It is
important to specify whether a product should be chemicallytreated and/or oiled when placing an order.
Resin Coating
Recommendations when chem-treating or oiling are as follows:
• Any questions regarding oiling or chemical-treatment
necessity including RoHs compliances should be referred
to our Technical Sales Department. We have several
options available.
• All resin-coated products (TruZinc® Plus and
ZINCALUME® Plus) should not be oiled. Oiling is
unnecessary and makes the resin-coated surface too slick.
• Some bare, chemically-treated (non-resin) products
require light to medium oiling so adequate lubricating
properties are achieved for downstream processing.
• All other bare products should be chemically-treated.
Steelscape offers a clear resin coating on ZINCALUME®
Steel product called ZINCALUME® Plus Steel. We also offer
a resin coated TruZinc® Steel, TruZinc® Plus. The resin
coating is water-based and is 0.031 to 0.060 mils thick.
The resin coating is applied in-line to both top and bottom
surface. It is formulated to resist finger printing and scuffing
during product handling in addition to improving resistance
to wet-stack stains occurring during transport and storage.
ZINCALUME Plus and TruZinc Plus Steel virtually eliminates
the need for roll forming lubricants.
Steelscape requests that customers notify them if any
adhesion properties are required of either ZINCALUME Plus
or TruZinc Plus steel products at the time of placing an order.
Depending on the adhesion properties required, a different
resin system may need to be applied.
Theoretical Minimum Weight
Steelscape provides ZINCALUME® and TruZinc® Steel
products on both an actual weight and TMW (theoretical
minimum weight) basis. Many of our customers sell their
products on a lineal footage basis and it makes sense to
purchase the same way. TMW pricing permits customers
to pay for the lineal feet of coated steel in a particular coil
(or order). If the steel is slightly thicker than the minimum
dimensions ordered customers do not pay for the excess.
Customers are charged only for the lineal feet received.
There is a small extra charge for the added feature of TMW
pricing and customers should contact your Steelscape Sales
Representative for details.
Several other, specialty resins are available, including
tinted products. Please inquire with your Steelscape Sales
Representative for additional information.
For customers buying and selling steel on an actual weight
basis our standard pricing uses the actual weight of each
coil (or order) to calculate the invoiced price. Steelscape
calculates the price of TMW products as follows:

This issue supersedes all previous issues
Fluting vs. Non-Fluting Steel
Guidelines for clarification on fluting vs. non-fluting steel
1.0 Introduction.
Due to the chemical and physical variability within
certain paint systems and slight process equipment
changes from one production run to another, there
are some products whose appearance may not be
the same from order to order. This technical bulletin
describes those items Steelscape does not guarantee as
reproducible and guidelines for avoiding mixed orders
on jobsites.
1.1 Definition
Fluting can be defined as follows:
Visible line markings that run perpendicular to the
forming direction and sometimes appear on the surface
of flat rolled low carbon steel products during forming
of cylindrical parts:
Product that does not exhibit these lines when formed
is usually called non-fluting and is likely related to
tension-leveling and/or temper passing practices after
annealing.
1.2 Controlling Fluting During Coil Production
Fluting can be eliminated or minimized depending on
steel chemistry and processing equipment capability.
Production lines with high load temper rolling or
stretcher/tension leveling capabilities can produce
a non-fluting material. However, the elimination of
fluting is often only temporary, and will re-appear as
the steel ages.
Fluting lines in formed sample
Steelscape has the ability to skin pass product on both
the TruZinc® and ZINCALUME® lines. If the skin pass
mill is used the resulting product will be non-fluting
for a period of time. All paint line feed coils are skin
passed for surface smoothness, but the paint line
process accelerates the aging of the steel and therefore
fluting may return. For this reason, Steelscape CANNOT
guarantee non-fluting on painted product. The only
remedy available at Steelscape is to tension level the
painted product after painting. However, like using the
skin pass mill, the non-fluting characteristic is temporary.
It is a naturally occurring characteristic of annealed
low-carbon steel and is influenced by the steel
chemistry, cold-reduction practices and annealing
cycles. It is associated with material that has an upper
and lower yield point, or yield point elongation (YPE)
and may also be referred to as Luder Lines, stretcher
strain, or discontinuous/non-uniform yielding.

TECHNICAL BULLETIN TB-1 Pre-Painted Product
1.3 How to Order Fluting/Non-Fluting Product
While skin passing of non-painted, bare material is not
standard, it can be requested if non-fluting is required.
There are several end uses that automatically trigger
this process. It is important when non-fluting material
is required for bare product that it be included on the
purchase order and, where applicable, one of the end
uses below be designated;
•HVAC
•Cornerbead—Bullnose
•Cornerbead
•Piping-Spiral
•Piping-Chimney
•Piping-Furnace
• Track-Garage Door
• Flashing-Bird stop (curved)
• Rainwater Goods
• Ductwork-Die stamped
As already mentioned, Steelscape cannot guarantee
non-fluting on painted product without the additional
tension leveling or extension process, which is only
offered on the slitter at the Rancho Cucamonga, CA
location. If painted, non-fluting material is required,
the requirement MUST be included on the purchase
order and reviewed with both the Steelscape Sales
Representative and Technical Services. Additional
processing charges may be incurred.
Bare product ordered as non-fluting or painted product
subsequently tension leveled for non-fluting should be
formed into final parts within 90 days of receipt.

getting the job done right the first time, we strive to make
doing business with Steelscape as easy as possible when
we don’t. To that end, we created a claims policy which
delineates our procedures for resolving product quality claims
in a timely and satisfactory manner.
Some of this required information can be found on the Steelscape Coil Tag
located on each coil. Coil identification and traceability is critical to a claim
investigation if a coil tag needs to be removed for processing, reattach it to
the bore of the coil or write the coil number on the side wall.

Steelscape will consider claims for water damage when the
claims are submitted within thirty (30) days of receipt of
product. Any material received wet upon delivery MUST be
noted on the receiver documents and acknowledged by the
delivering agent. This must be submitted immediately to
Steelscape for review. Any material not noted as damaged
or wet, will be considered accepted as prime. Examples
of water damage may include; wet cores, visible water or
condensation on the inside of packaging, positive moisture
tag indicator, visible corrosion (white or black rust on bare
product), raised or rough texture of painted surface, and
water staining (including yellowish discoloration on resin
product).
* See following details for specific limitations
Specific Claim Reasons:
Underweight coils – Steelscape’s definition of coil weights is
as follows:
• Underweight coils shall not comprise more than 20% of
an order without customer approval. If Steelscape ships
underweight coils in excess of 20% of an order, a claim
for underweight coils may be considered.
• For Bare Product, where no minimum coil weight is
specified, underweight coils are those coils weighing less
than 75% of the specified maximum coil weight. Coils
weighing more than 75% of the specified maximum coil
weight will be considered fit for purpose.
• For Painted Product, where no minimum coil weight is
specified, underweight coils are those coils weighing less
than 50% of the specified maximum coil weight. Coils
weighing greater than 50% of the specified maximum coil
weight will be considered fit for purpose.
Storing coils or panels in a manner where they become
unprotected from water ingress and condensation will
negate Steelscape’s responsibility with respect to water
damage claims. Where customers order packaging options
that Steelscape considers inadequate for the product, and
Steelscape forewarns said customer in writing to that end,
Steelscape’s liability for water damage will be negated.
Surface Condition
Steelscape will not accept claims for embossed difference in
appearance when material is mixed by customer.
The production of coil by the hot dip, metal coating
process naturally leads to the formation of some surface
imperfections on the product. These imperfections, while
not adversely affecting product life, may cause problems
when the material is to be post-painted on a coil coating line.
Therefore, Steelscape does not recommend the use of non
skin-passed product in coil painting applications.
Steelscape embossed stucco pattern creates peaks and
valleys on the embossed strip. There will be difference in
appearance in bare embossed panels when viewing two
panels side by side, with opposite sides showing (peaks up
vs. peaks down). Steelscape will not accept claims for this
difference in the appearance when panels are processed or
installed with panels’ peaks up vs. peaks down by customer. Where skin-passed product is ordered, Steelscape will
consider claims for surface imperfections that render the
product unsuitable for organic coil coating processes. If coil
is ordered as non skin-passed, and subsequently used in
organic coil coating, Steelscape will not accept claims for
surface imperfections that could reasonably be considered to
be removed by the skin-passing operation.
Painted embossed material can show color variation in the
panels if the directionality is reversed panel to panel. This
is due to the way light reflects off the peaks and valleys of
the embossed surface. This is especially common on higher
gloss paint systems. Steelscape will not accept claims where
the panels have been processed or installed reverse direction
panel to panel by customer.
Steelscape will not accept claim for bare or painted hot dip coils with light
surface dross as this is a normal part of the metallic coating process.
Embossed Coils
Flatness
Steelscape will provide material conforming to ASTM
standard A924/A924M. When customer requirements
demand a product that exceeds these standards, Steelscape
must agree, in writing, to provide the material to the
customer requirements. Where product does not meet either
the ASTM standard or the written undertaking of Steelscape,
claims for shape defects will be considered.
Steelscape guarantees all embossed product supplied will
not have edge wave greater than fifteen (15) I units. When
customer requirements are more stringent than fifteen (15)
I units, Steelscape will provide product, as agreed. This
agreement must be in writing and must be obtained prior to
the order acceptance. When Steelscape provides a product
that exhibits edge wave greater than either the agreed
standard or (15) I units, and the product is unsuitable for the
designated end use, Steelscape will consider claims for edge
wave.
Edge Wave
Steelscape guarantees all product supplied will have edge
wave less than fifteen (15) I units as defined by ASTM
standard A924/A924M. When customer requirements are
more stringent than the aforementioned standard, Steelscape
will provide product, as agreed. This agreement must be in
writing and must be obtained prior to the order acceptance.

Field Failure Claims
Steelscape will consider each field failure claim on an
individual basis. Where the product failure is clearly caused
by product defects, Steelscape will, at its own option,
replace or repair defective product where failure occurs after
installation. Replacement cost will be limited to the value of
the material only. Any other costs or contingencies will not
be considered. This includes, but is not limited to, transport
fees, material forming, job installation, removal of defective
product, late charges for the job, equipment rental, idle
person-hours, or other installation or administrative costs.
Steelscape may supply product within tighter specifications,
but only when there is prior written agreement from
Steelscape to provide such a product. Claims regarding
quality concerns with painted products will be accepted
for consideration only when the product falls outside these
parameters.
Secondary Product
All secondary products sold by Steelscape are sold on an “as
is” basis, with no warranty expressed or implied. No quality
claims will be accepted on secondary product.
Other Claim Reasons
Width
Steelscape will consider other reasons for quality concerns
on an individual basis. Should these occur, the customer
must contact either their Account Manager, Customer Service
Representative or Technical Services.
Our products will be within width tolerances as defined in
ASTM standard A924/A924M.
Thickness
Steelscape’s products will be within the ASTM Full Restricted
Tolerances - 1" Minimum Edge Distance, as defined
in ASTM standard A924/A924M (table shown below).
However, Steelscape will provide our product to a tighter
thickness tolerance if agreement to provide this product
is acknowledged in writing prior to order acceptance by a
Steelscape Technical Service Engineer.
Steelscape Claim Responses
Steelscape will respond to the customer within thirty (30)
calendar days from the date complete claims information is
provided by the customer to the Steelscape Technical Service
Engineer. Steelscape’s response may include one of the
following:
• Acceptance of the rejection and instructions for material
disposition.

Running Minimum Amount of Defect
• Recommendations for further processing at the customer’s
facility for purposes of working through the defective
material.
• Instructions for the return of the material in question to
Steelscape. Some material may be usable with additional
processing. Once the material has been reprocessed and
the issue resolved, the material will be returned to the
customer.
• Request for an extension if acceptance or denial cannot
be determined within the thirty (30) calendar days. A
request for extension will include a reason and the
specific timeline for a final response.
Wherever possible and practical Steelscape requests that the
customer try to process a minimum of 200 ft. of the product
before filing a claim. This is due to the fact that some defects
may clear up within 200 ft. However, where the defect is
obviously evident throughout the coil, no such processing is
required.
Segregation and Protection of Claim Coils
Steelscape requires customers to have the defective coils
readily available for inspection at a mutually arranged time.
The coils may require an inspection on a recoiler unit or
rolled out in a safe manner to be inspected by Steelscape
representatives. Steelscape requires customers to provide
adequate protection of all claim coils to prevent generation
of further defects. Steelscape may reduce the claim amount
by the amount of any additional induced losses due to
inadequate protection.
The customer will have the opportunity to appeal any denied
claim for fourteen (14) calendar days after written denial
is provided by Steelscape. All accounting transactions
related to the claim will be held until such time that the final
disposition of the claim has been made and agreed to by both
parties.
NOTE: Any unauthorized or unidentified deductions taken by a customer
before a claim is disposed of, approved by Steelscape, and settled
shall constitute nonpayment with subsequent consequences.
Consequences may include, but not limited to, implementation by
Steelscape of a credit hold, shipping hold, and/or loss of discount
privileges.
Tagged Defect
Steelscape’s products may contain a tagged or marked
defect. The tags define the start and end point of such a
defect. Steelscape will not accept claims on this material
when the defect falls within the boundaries of the tags. This
defective material can be included in scrap reconciliation
with Steelscape or reduced from the price of the coil prior to
invoicing. Consideration will be given to any defects outside
the tagged area.
