Galfan is a flat carbon steel product coated on both sides with a zinc-aluminium alloy. The coating is composed of 95% zinc and 5% aluminium and is applied by means of a continuous hot dip galvanising process.

Galfan is available in a very wide range of steel grades: steels for cold forming and deep drawing applications, structural steels and High Strength Low Alloy steels.

Because of the nature and the particular structure of its coating, galfan is characterised by very good ductility and excellent forming performance. It is therefore recommended for parts requiring severe deep drawing.

The presence of aluminium in the coating makes the corrosion resistance of galfan significantly higher than that of standard hot dip galvanised steel of equivalent thickness. Galfan offers improved edge corrosion resistance.

    Galvanised strips are usually supplied passivated or oiled to temporarily limit any risk of white rust formation. During transport and storage, all necessary precautions must be taken to keep the material dry and to prevent the formation of condensation. Improved protection can be achieved by the application of an Easyfilm® thin organic coating (please see data sheet E80 for the specific properties of Easyfilm®).

    Forming and joining

    The forming and joining techniques currently used for uncoated steel are also suitable for galvanised steel. It is essential to select a coating thickness that is compatible with the forming and joining processes envisaged, without compromising the desired degree of corrosion protection.


    Hot dip galvanised steels can be painted after degreasing and surface treatment when supplied oiled. If an Easyfilm® thin organic coating has been applied, they can be painted directly, without any prior surface treatment. However, the paint must be compatible with the Easyfilm® resin.


    In electrical resistance welding, the welding current must be suitably regulated and regularly adjusted. Electrode life can be extended by regularly stepping up the welding current and periodically dressing (machining) the electrodes.
