Bezinal ®, Bekaert Zinc Aluminum, is a eutectic alloy of 95 % zinc + 5 % aluminum (+ misch metal). Characterized by the resistance to corrosion of its coating and its adhesive qualities ("formability").
The product offers excellent resistance to corrosion thanks to the combination of anti-rust characteristics of the passivation in the aluminum and the protection offered by the zinc content in the alloy.
