Galvanized steel coil is our most exported product.
These 50 tons of DX51D grade GI coil were for our regular customer in Thailand. This customer is an end user that uses galvanized steel coil to make keels.
We have cooperated with them for over one year and a half now and receive regular orders of galvanized coil in 0.4, 0.45, 0.55 and 0.65mm thicknesses.

More About the Order
Getting more down to specifics, this particular order of GI coil had zero spangle, was unoiled and skin passed.
Fun Fact: These days in China you can only order zero or regular spangle. Nobody produces small spangle anymore.
The size was 0.65 x 1250mm x C. This size is regularly produced in China, so the price we can offer you for a width like this is more favorable.
Top Tip: Ordering coil with a width of 1000mm or more will get you the best price. Anything under 1000mm is considered an irregular size in China, is rarely produced and will cost extra to make.
Sometimes smaller widths can be rolled for our customers but MOQ is higher. Alternatively the galvanized steel coils can be processed to make them narrower, however, this also puts the price up due to wastage and processing costs.
