IBR World (Pty) Ltd. supplies steel flat sheets in both Galvanized and Chromadek. Galvanizing is a zinc coating applied to sheets of steel through a process called “continuous hot-dip,” in which a steel sheet passes through a bath of molten zinc. The liquid zinc bonds to the iron in the steel, forming a protective layer on both sides of the sheet.

Don’t grasp metal pieces tightly, and a light grip will prevent cuts and slices. Never run your fingers along the raw edge. Wear gloves for protection. Whenever possible, use a well-mounted vice to grip your piece while you’re working.
