Various types of steel sheet (base materials), pretreatments and coatings were investigated as part of this project with a view to the development of an optimum duplex-system. Hot-dip galvanized, electro-galvanized, galvannealed and zinc-nickel sheets were used as the base material. In addition, pretreatment and organic coating systems available on the domestic market were applied. The various combinations of components and the reference samples were tested to determine their application, corrosion resistance, joinability and formability.
