A REVIEW OF THE USE OF ZINCROMETAL IN THE AUTOMOTIVE INDUSTRY (STEEL)

ZINCROMETAL (Wyandotte Paint Products Company) a precoated steel prepared on coil coating lines, is corrosion resistant, weldable and formable, and is available as a one-side coated material. It is used for fenders, door panels, quarter panels, hoods, and deck lids. In 1977, over 13 million pounds of zinc dust were used; production on coil coating lines accounted for over 40% of that industry's output of coated steel; and the wholesale value of the ZINCROMETAL sold to the automotive industry was nearly one half billion dollars.
