GLO: Steel hot dip galvanised Global 2018 worldsteel. 1kg, typical thickness between 0.3 - 3 mm. typical width between 600 - 2100 mm
Hot-dip galvanised steel. Obtained by passing cold rolled coil through a molten zinc bath, in order to coat the steel with a thin layer of zinc to provide corrosion resistance. It can be found on the market in coil or in sheets and is further processed into finished products by the manufacturers.
Hot Dip Galvanized Steel features excellent forming properties, paintability, weldability, and is suitable for fabrication by forming, pressing and bending. Applications include domestic applications, building applications (e.g. wall elements, roofing applications), automotive applications (e.g. body in white for vehicles underbody auto parts), lighting fixtures, drums and various kinds of sections applications, profiled sheets, etc.
This dataset includes raw material extraction (e.g. coal, iron, ore, etc.) and processing, e.g. scrap, coke making, sinter, blast furnace, basic oxygen furnace, electric arc furnace, hot strip mill, cold rolling mill. Details on the steel product manufacturing route can be found in Appendix 1 of the 2017 worldsteel LCA Methodology Report. The steelmaking processes are shown in the flow diagram. Inputs included in the Life Cycle Inventory relate to all raw material inputs, including steel scrap, energy, water, and transport. Outputs include steel and other co-products, emissions to air, water and land. Further information is given in the 2017 worldsteel LCA Methodology Report. External scrap input includes approx. 2% scrap from manufacturing/fabrication processing. This LCI does not include a credit for recycling of steel at end of life and a burden for steel scrap input during production. This is the preferred approach adopted by worldsteel, detailed in the 2017 methodology report (Appendix 2).
