Nippon Steel to launch ZAM®-EX for overseas markets

03 May 2021

Nippon Steel Corporation (Nippon Steel) will launch ZAM®-EX, highly corrosion-resistant coated steel sheets for overseas markets. 

Nippon Steel and the former Nippon Steel Nisshin Co., Ltd. (NSN) have been selling highly corrosion-resistant coated steel sheets, SuperDyma (SD) and ZAM, in overseas markets. Even after the merger of the two companies, the new company has continued selling SD as well as ZAM. Starting with new orders, it will sell its highly corrosion-resistant coated steel sheets for overseas markets under the new brand name, ZAM®-EX. It will also offer useful life guarantees for ZAM®-EX in overseas markets in a certain corrosive environment. Its enhanced versatility for highly corrosion-resistant coated steel sheets will satisfy customer expectation.

Nippon Steel will sell ZAM®-EX for new orders for JIS standard highly corrosion-resistant coated steel sheets for overseas markets. It will continue to sell SD and ZAM for customers who currently purchase them under the SD and ZAM brands.

Nippon Steel will guarantee for up to 20 to 25 years, ensuring that there will be no hole up to the period in a certain corrosive environment, on an individual contract basis in response to customer requests mainly for solar power applications.
