Zincalume Steel vs. Galvanized: Pioneering the Future of Steel Innovation

August 10, 2023

History is brimming with tales of industry giants who missed the turning tides of change. Relying solely on traditions and “the way it’s always been done” can have its charm, but in the fast-paced world of 21st-century roofing, evolution is not just a choice—it’s a necessity.

At BCMP, we’ve been shaping the future of steel and metal for over 60 years, always asking, “What’s the next big thing in steel innovation?”

Instead of simply echoing the industry’s chorus of “Galvanized is the pinnacle for roofing,” we’ve been champions of ZINCALUME® for three decades. Not only does ZINCALUME® boast superior formability, but its lifespan outshines galvanized steel by fourfold.

This is thanks to its dual protection against corrosion, offering both a barrier and sacrificial protection, as opposed to just the latter seen in galvanized steel. Think of it as the next-gen steel, waiting to be widely recognized and appreciated, much like Thomas Edison’s revolutionary light bulb.

Embracing change is easy to advocate for, yet in business, there’s a prevailing tendency to cling to old methods. At BCMP, we revere our history while pioneering the future, ensuring neither we nor our customer are left languishing in the past.
