Silo roof, body and structural profiles

Product advice on steels to be used for:
Important specification
  • Durability
  • Resistance
  • Aesthetics
Recommendation

Silo manufacturing requires a long lasting coating and aesthetic, on top of the mechanical properties provided by steel. With a high level of performance, ArcelorMittal product offer for silos can meet this challenges.

Hot dip galvanised heavy coatings is the best choice for this application, recognised by the main manufacturers. With a coating mass ≥ 450g/sqm, heavy coatings provide to silos a long-lasting surface aspect. With its state-of-the-art technology, ArcelorMittal is the first steel company in Europe to measure coating thickness to the smallest deviation. This ensures precision and homogeneity throughout the coated coil.

Magnelis® is also a good choice for this application, in particular for non visible parts such as structural parts. Magnelis® is a flat carbon steel product coated on both sides with a zinc-aluminium-magnesium alloy. This alloy, composed of 93.5% zinc, 3.5% aluminium and 3% magnesium, is applied by means of a continuous hot dip galvanising process. This optimum chemical composition has been selected to provide the best results in terms of corrosion resistance.

For structural parts, all our best in class coatings combined with high strength steel offer an interesting solution, which allows thickness reduction.
