Best corrosion protection from production to further processing

Steel optimized against wind and weather. Steel is often found in applications exposed to the most extreme conditions. Like hardly any other material, it is exposed to the force of the elements. With surface treatments made by voestalpine, the steel is optimally prepared to meet the challenge. At voestalpine, a great deal of importance is attached to perfect workability in every processing step.



Phosphating is of great importance in various industries due to the properties of an inorganic thin film layer. Typical areas of application are in the automotive and forming industry as well as applications in the building and construction industry such as ceiling, wall and façade panelling; sun protection; shelving systems etc. 

The phosphate coating adheres very well to the galvanised steel substrate. It has a microporous or microcapillary surface, which simplifies the anchoring of subsequent organic coatings on the component.

- Very good storage and transport corrosion protection

- Best suitable pre-treatment / paint substrate 

- Best forming and sliding properties

- Weld-in coating

- Mechanical stability

Thanks to the quality-assured application of an electrolytically applied zinc coating and a full-surface phosphate coating, perforated plates with percoat® guarantee optimum forming properties and a very good paint substrate for further processing by the customer. percoat® is the innovative perforated plate coating from voestalpine, which offers excellent, uniform corrosion protection, especially on the perforated cut surfaces.


prelube2 for optimized tribology and excellent oil distribution

Do you want a corrosion protection oil that increases cleanliness in your production processes, enhances work safety, features improved tribology and is compatible with your downstream processes? Then prelube2 is the product of your choice.

prelube2 and its optimized tribology make it possible to work with less oil coating yet maintain the same level of formability, thus reducing oil leakage and oil redistribution on strip during storage. prelube2 has the potential to reduce the friction coefficient, prolong intervals for tool cleaning and make production cleaner. For the highest forming requirements, prelube2 is just the right choice. Whether in the automotive or any other industry, prelube2 offers you the possibility of making production even more efficient.

clearcover® is the sustainable and environmentally friendly passivation coating for hot-dip galvanized steel strip

Do you need a sustainable passivation coating with outstanding corrosion protection properties and very good processing characteristics? Then clearcover® is the product of your choice.

clearcover® is the new, sustainable and environmentally friendly passivation coating without chromium or chromium compounds. The passivation is also free of other heavy metals. The less than one μm thick inorganic coating on galvanized steel strip provides good storage and transport corrosion protection and supports formability and bondability in customer processes.

Corrosion protection properties in comparison

Protection against corrosion on metallic components is an omnipresent topic, and a variety of different surface treatments are highly effective. clearcover® offers optimum corrosion protection in many applications.
