PPGI is the abbreviation of Pre Painted Galvanized, that is, color coated galvanized Usually refers to PPGI Coil, PPGI Sheet and other steel products On the basis of galvanized coil, it is coated with color paint with certain technology to give more color to the product. The colorful and beautiful surface makes it more widely used.
PPGI is a product made by surface chemical treatment (degreasing, phosphating, chrome hydrochloric acid passivation), coating and baking of coated steel plates (zinc plating, aluminum zinc plating, nickel plating, etc.).
Advantages: It not only has the mechanical strength and formability of steel plate, but also has good decorative and corrosion resistance of organic materials. The coating has strong adhesion and can keep the color novel for a long time.
Application: It is widely used in buildings, household appliances, furniture, public facilities, transportation and other fields.
PPGI sheet application in Argentina
The construction industry is an important sector of Argentina's national economy, accounting for approximately 5% to 6% of GDP. PPGI sheet is widely used in Ceiling Suspension Bars, Factory Building, PPGI Steel Roof Tiles, Roofing, Surface Panel, Rolling Door Shutter, Partitions, Electrical Appliances, Container Wall etc
Influencing factors of PPGI sheet price
The price of PPGI sheet is mainly affected by raw materials (base plate), zinc layer thickness, coating thickness, coating brand, steel coil thickness and packaging method.
1. Thickness of steel coil base plate affects the PPGI sheet price
The thinner the PPGI sheet, the higher the price. For example, the price of 0.13-0.16mm is relatively high, the price of 0.3-0.45mm changes slightly, and the price of 0.45-0.7 is basically the same. Because the thinner the PPGI sheet, the more meters per ton of steel coil, and the larger the area. It will use more paint and longer processing time.
2. Thickness of zinc layer affects the PPGI sheet price
The price of PPGI sheet depends on the thickness of zinc layer. For example, the prices of 20g zinc layer and 50g zinc layer differ greatly. If the customer has no requirements for zinc coating, it is recommended to select a steel coil with about 30g zinc coating. The price of color coating is also affected by the aluminum content, and the price of color coating with 25% and 55% aluminum content differs greatly. If the environment used by the customer is ordinary, the color coated steel coil with an aluminum content of about 25% can be selected. If it is used in humid, outdoor and perennial tropical climate environment, it is recommended to choose the color coating with high aluminum and zinc content.
3. Paint thickness affects the PPGI sheet price
PPGI sheet is available in single side color coating and double side color coating.
Generally, the film thickness of single color top coat is 11-30um, and the thickness of back coat is 5-10um. The thickness of double paint color finish is 11-30um, and the thickness of back paint is also 11-30um. The price of single color coating is lower than that of double color coating. Customers need to choose the appropriate color coating according to the use and environment.
4. Type and brand of paint affects the PPGI sheet price
The types and brands of coatings also have an impact on the price of PPGI sheet: coatings are mainly divided into PE polyester color plate, PVDF fluorocarbon color plate, HDPE high weather resistant color plate and SMP calcium silicate color coated steel plate. PE coating is used most, with relatively large price advantage. The service life of PVDF coating, HDPE coating and SMP coating is longer than that of PE coating, but the price is higher. Better paint brands include Nippon, Aksu, etc. Customers also need to choose the paint brand according to the use place and environment of the color paint.
5. Packaging affects the PPGI sheet price
PPGI sheet is packaged in simple packaging, standard export packaging and special packaging.
Simple packaging, suitable for short distance transportation, the outer layer is protected by waterproof kraft paper, with simple protective performance and low price.
The outer surface of standard export packaging is waterproof kraft paper and galvanized iron packaging. The exterior of PPGI sheet is also protected with galvanized iron sheet. For long-distance transportation and containers, steel wire reinforcement is used. It can better protect the surface of PPGI sheet. Better waterproof effect. This kind of packaging is the most widely used.
Special packaging includes vertical packaging or packaging required by customers. This packaging method can calculate the price according to the packaging cost. The vertical packaging is with the core upward and the bottom fixed on a wooden pallet. This packaging method protects the PPGI sheet from external forces to the maximum extent, but the packaging cost and labor cost are high.
PPGI sheet price in Argentina
PPGI sheets usually have different prices in different countries and regions. This is mainly related to the local raw material cost, labor cost and transportation cost. The current price is about $490-690. Building materials in Argentina rose by about 5.6% in the past two years. The price of PPGI sheet price also keeps rising.
