UniCote® Coastal takes our standard aluminium/zinc alloy-coated steel substrate to the next level with the addition of magnesium. This enables the zinc to ‘flow’, which seals the cut edges preventing exposure to premature corrosion. This makes it ideal for harsher environments and those nearer the coast.
