Magna flow is a pre-painted roofing or cladding steel substrate with magnesium added technology for superior corrosion resistance.
The addition of magnesium to the standard zinc/aluminium alloy-coated steel substrate enables the zinc to ‘flow’, which seals the cut edges, preventing exposure to premature corrosion. This makes it ideal for harsher environments and those nearer the coast.
The superior corrosion resistance of MagnaFlow means it is an ideal choice for more demanding environments, such as severe marine environments close to the coast, as well as industrial sites where cladding is exposed to high ph (alkaline) cleaning products, such as dairy factories, fertiliser processing & storage facilities or abattoirs.
Where there are corrosive chemicals present in the atmosphere, it is advisable to use MagnaFlow X, with a 70% PVDF topcoat.
MagnaFlow is ideal for animal shelters, flashings, interior uses, and exterior environments where corrosion levels are moderate.
ColorCote MagnaFlow and MagnaFlow X are not suitable for use in the following situations:
ColorCote MagnaFlow and MagnaFlow X, under normal well washed conditions of exposure, can be expected to show no cracking (other than that which may occur during forming), flaking or peeling of the paint film for 15 years from the date of installation.
