Zinc Metal

We produce zinc in a variety of grades as defined in ASTM Specification B6.

  • Special High Grade Zinc (SHG) is a high purity grade of zinc (99.990% Zn minimum) used in hot-dip and electro-galvanizing and as a component of brass alloys.
  • Continuous Galvanizing Grade (CGG) is generally between .1 and 1% Al (per customer specification) and is used in the continuous galvanizing of steel coils. This galvanized sheet is then used in the production of automobiles, appliances, electronics and more.
  • High Grade Zinc (HG) is a grade of zinc (99.95% Zn minimum) used in hot-dip galvanizing and as a component in zinc alloys.
  • Prime Western Zinc (PW) is a nominal 1% lead zinc alloy used extensively in after-fabrication hot-dip galvanizing and as a component of brass alloys.
