What is Zmax® galvanized steel?
(ZMAX is our branded name for continuous hot-dip galvanized steel with a G185 specification that provides more than three times the zinc of the industry standard G60 galvanized coating.)
What is the corrosion resistance of powder coat over Zmax®?
Products with a powder-coat finish over a ZMAX base have the same level of corrosion resistance. * Bright fasteners may be used with ZMAX or HDG connectors where low corrosion resistance is allowed. Products are hot-dip galvanized after fabrication (14 ga. and thicker).
What is the difference between hot-dip galvanized and ZMAX?
ZMAX is a thicker coating (galvanized per ASTM A653 with a G185 coating) than the standard hot-dip galvanized coating (galvanized per ASTM A653 with a G90 coating). This thicker coating is available on select Simpson Strong-Tie connectors.
