Zintec is a mild steel product that has been electrolytically coated with a thin layer of nearly pure zinc.
It has a much smoother uniform, matt gray finish to the surface.
It does not have the same protective values as Galvanized steels and is not used for external projects, although its ultra-smooth surface makes it ideal for a high gloss paint application.
Automotive parts requiring an ultra-smooth finish, white goods, furniture, lighting and computer cases.
Zintec can be welded, but one must exercise caution around resulting zinc fumes.
