We manufacture many sheet metal components from Zintec material. Zintec is a form of mild steel sheet metal with a thin coat of zinc to protect it from atmospheric corrosion applied at the steel mill to the master coil. Zintec is often used for components that do not need to be fully protected such as computer internal chassis, brackets and rear panels, light fitting gear boxes and covers, air conditioning enclosures and covers etc. Zintec is often a good material to be powder coated giving a better protection to the component if it is scratched through the powder. If you want more protection than Zintec then you can have your mild steel components zinc plated. Exterior components that are manufactured from thicker gauge mild steel can be hot dip galvanised to coat them in an even thicker layer of zinc.
These sheet metal components have all been manufactured during May 2013 in our factory in Fareham, Hampshire, UK.
For more information on Zintec and how it is produced please take a look at our mild steel data page.
