Studs (0.8mm thick having one flange of 34mm and another flange of 36mm) Made from G. I Steel with galvanised zinc coating of 120 microns and 25 microns of paint coating.
Floor and ceiling channel(0.8mm thick have equal flange of 32mm).Made from G. I steel with galvansized zinc coating of 120 microns and 25 microns of paint coating.
|Sr.No.||Floor & Ceiling Channel||Metal Studs||Fixing Channel|
|1||Coating||AZ Alloy of Aluminium 55% & silicon 1.5%||Zinc coating Plus Resin modifies polymer paint coating|
|2||Coating thickness||150gsm both sides include||120gsm Zinc + 25micron of paint coating both side included.|
|3||Surface Protection||Aluminium alloy provides barrier protection||Zinc provides galvanic protection barrier resistance to corrosion.|
|4||Edge protection||Rusting due to surface scratches is imminent||Better protectioin against corrosion at edges as it is drawn of zinc coating.|
|5||Surface scratches||Edge rusting will be seen almost immediately||Enhanced protection of surface scratches de to additional layer of paint on top of zinc coating.|
|6||Weight||Final cold formed material will be lighter||Final cold formed material will be a bit heavier.|
|7||Reaction with concrete and marter||Corrodes immediately and at a very fast rate||far Better resistance against wet concrete and morter.|
Metal Stud partition which includes two layers of Boards is screw fixed with drywall screws to either side of stud (having on flange of 34 mm and another flange of 36 mm made of G. I steel) placed at 610 mm centre in floor and ceiling channels (having equal flanges of 32 mm made from G. I steel). A fixing channel of 99mm width (0.9mm thick having two flanges of 9.5 mm each) has to be provide both sides at the horizontal joints.Applications :
1) For semi exterior areas such as external soffit ceiling and partition.
2) For high corrosion area such as sea facing buildings.
3) For dry wall partition in wet areas.
