Only the highest quality Zincalume® and Colorbond® steel are used in Pioneer Water Tanks, providing unmatched durability that no other tank manufacturer can offer- that’s why Pioneer® Tanks last longer than any other brand. Pioneer Water Tanks come standard in Zincalume® Steel with your option of upgrading to a wide selection of Colorbond® steel color options.
The Zincalume® Steel Manufacturing Process
1. The metallic coating provides barrier protection to the steel. Magnesium compounds are positioned in the metallic coating to activate at the start of weathering when they are most vital for sacrificial protection.
2. Corrosion of the zinc-rich interdendritic region provides improved sacrificial protection to the steel base due to the presence of the magnesium compound. Magnesium siblicide particles in the interdendritic channels act as additional barriers to slow corrosion and restrict corrosion pathways to the steel substrate.
3. The Aluminum-rich region is modified to provide improved sacrificial protection of the steel base and resist rusting for longer in more severe environments.
ZINCALUME STEEL® IS TESTED AND PROVEN TO LAST LONGER
Next generation ZINCALUME® steel AM125 introduces magnesium into the aluminum-zinc alloy coating, which improves galvanic protection by activating the aluminum. The result is more effective corrosion resistance. BlueScope Steel research and testing have found that the addition of 2% magnesium is the optimum level of corrosion performance and coating integrity. Along with a capital investment of over $100 million to facilitate the required manufacturing capability, BlueScope Steel can now produce next generation ZINCALUME® steel AM125 with even greater durability and a more efficient protective coating mass.
