ZAM®-EX: high corrosion resistant coated steel sheets

21 April 2021

Nippon Steel Corporation will soon launch ZAM®-EX, highly corrosion-resistant coated steel sheets for overseas markets. 

Nippon Steel and the former Nippon Steel Nisshin Co., Ltd. (NSN) have been selling highly corrosion resistant coated steel sheets, SuperDyma (SD) and ZAM, in overseas markets since 2000. Even after the merger of the two companies in April 2020, the new company has continued selling SD as well as ZAM. Starting with new orders, they will sell their highly corrosion resistant coated steel sheets for overseas markets under the new brand name, ZAM®-EX. The company will also offer useful life guarantees for ZAM®-EX in overseas markets in a certain corrosive environment. Their enhanced versatility for highly corrosion resistant coated steel sheets will satisfy customer expectations. 

In recent years, Nippon Steel’s customers, mainly in the field of solar power, from which demand for highly corrosion resistant coated steel sheets is growing, often requested useful life guarantees for Nippon Steel’s products. Based on the extensive track record of being used for more than 20 years since the launch of SD and ZAM, they decided to offer guarantees such as one of a new values for ZAM®-EX.
