Different Types of Steels Used for Various Applications


At DANA we aspire to be the most reliable and innovative world steels reference on the market. We strive to supply and produce high quality steels to satisfy our customers by using the latest technology at reasonable prices.


Here are our 6 different types of steel that we supply:




Galvanized steel:


Hot-dip galvanized steel is produced by passing cold-rolled steel to fully cover it with zinc in a 460° molten bath to protect it from corrosion. The zinc acts as a protective barrier against the steel. When the steel is removed from the zinc bath, several layers of zinc-iron alloys have formed on its surface on which the entrained zinc solidifies.


The zinc will therefore have this protective function in order to combat corrosion.



Galvanized steel is used as a roofing material for roofs, side walls but also for false ceilings, steel buildings, automotive components, water heaters and coolers, chimney or plumbing ducts and much more.



The advantages of using galvanized steel are numerous such as


  • Corrosion resistance
  • Excellent handling and paint adhesion
  • Its protection
  • Its low cost
  • Its lifespan
  • Aesthetics


DANA STEEL manufactures hot-dip galvanized steel coils (GI coils) according to the main international standards established by ASTM, JIS, EN. All our products are subjected to the most rigorous quality tests in our in-house laboratory in accordance with our ISO 9001: 2015 standard. We ensure that we meet and exceed the specifications defined by various international standards.




Cold-rolled steel


Cold-rolled steel is manufactured by passing the steel through a number of cold rolls. As it passes through the rolls the steel decreases in thickness.

Cold-rolled steel is generally harder and stronger than standard hot-rolled steel.



Cold-rolled steel is mainly used in machine parts, household appliances, metal furniture, exhaust pipes, water heaters and even in the automotive industry.




The advantages of using cold-rolled steel are many, such as :


  • High strength
  • Long-term durability
  • More precise applications
  • Aesthetics



DANA Steel holds a leading position in the cold rolling sector in the United Arab Emirates and the Middle East as a whole. The available technology guarantees high quality products for critical applications in the automotive, white goods (household appliances), construction, etc. sectors. Our CRCA products are available with deep drawing, deep drawing, interstitial free steel and high strength grades according to JIS (Japanese Industrial Standards) EN (European Standards) and ASTM (American Society of Testing and Materials) standards.








Aluzinc steels


Aluzinc is a product-coated carbon steel sheet prepared in a bath of 55% aluminium, 43.4% zinc and 1.6% silicon. Aluzinc offers excellent corrosion resistance due to the protective barrier of aluminium and the sacrificial protection of zinc.





Aluzinc is known to be used for ovens, cabinets or even electrical controls and roofs, garage doors.





  • Very good corrosion resistance.
  • Its surface hardness gives us a very good resistance to abrasion.









Pre-painted aluminium



Prepainted aluminium is coil coating which is a continuous and highly automated industrial process for coating metal prior to treatment/forming. Coil coating provides beautiful top coats, durable surfaces and a high quality finish.



Prepainted aluminum is used for roofing systems, ceiling systems, curtain wall panels, shutters, gutters, composite panels, cans, appliance panels and embossed aluminum coils.



Pre-painted aluminium has many advantages indeed this last one is



  • Economic
  • Techniques
  • Environmental
  • Production
  • Commercial










Corrugated sheets





Corrugated sheet is a building material marketed in the form of metal plates made of steel sheets that we produce ourselves hot and cold-rolled to give them a corrugated profile.




Corrugated sheet is often used for roofs but also for other things like airplane fuselages.



Corrugated sheet metal has many advantages such as for example :


  • Its solidity which allows to support the weight of several people
  • Its capacity for shock resistance which is very important.
  • Wide choice of colours
  • Its affordable price
  • Its watertightness









Prepainted galvanized steel



Dana’s pre-painted galvanized steels are manufactured to meet the technical requirements of various industrial applications of pre-painted galvanized steel in terms of flexibility, stain resistance, corrosion resistance, surface hardness and scratch resistance.

It is lacquered using a variety of processes that protect the steel and its galvanization from corrosion and external chemical attack.





Prepainted galvanized steels are widely used in the building industry.





  • Its flexibility, which allows it to be used with other layers
  • Possibility to superimpose different types on the steel surface.
  • Its protection against corrosion and other
  • -Reasonable cost
  • Recyclable material
  • Aesthetic aspect
