Galvanneal Steel

Body construction features two-sided A60 galvannealed steel. The annealing heat treatment process directly after the galvanization of the sheet steel in a hot zinc bath during production causes the iron and zinc layers to diffuse into each other creating fully bonded zinc-iron alloys at the surface. These alloy layers provide excellent scratch and corrosion resistance as well as a desirable substrate for superior paint adhesion.

Galvannealed steel provides:

  • Scratch resistance
  • Corrosion resistance
  • 50% more zinc coating than A40 steel construction
  • Excellent paint adhesion
