It is the only metal coating product that is certified for use in a C5 environment. It is also the material of choice for structural components in solar farms.

A durable coating for solar structures

Magnelis® supports efforts to produce clean, renewable energy by providing advanced protection against corrosion for solar installations.

Magnelis® is the coating of choice for concentrated solar plants (CSP) and soil-based structural solutions for photovoltaic (PV) solar farms. It offers increased durability, and the best possible protection against corrosion and abrasion.

Magnelis® extends the lifespan of solar structures, so operators can maximise the return on their investment. Its main advantages in these situations include:

  • guaranteed durability for up to 25 years*
  • Increased resistance to abrasion
  • Effective against corrosion, even when placed in soil
  • Wide range of feasibility in terms of the thickness and grade of the steel
  • Profitable
  • Fast installation
  • Reduces your environmental impact

*A guarantee of 25 years is available for Magnelis® ZM310 used in support structures in solar applications. It is the first metallic coating to meet C5-M and ISO 12944-2 conditions. The Magnelis® ZM310 guarantee depends on the specific conditions of the project.

Main advantages

Excellent resistance to corrosion: three times better than galvanised steel (based on outdoor tests)

The self-repairing effect ensures excellent protection for the edges

The best, and most cost-effective, alternative to post-galvanised steels

Wide range of feasibility

Excellent treatment properties

Environmentally friendly

The minimum recommended coating for the upper parts of solar structures is Magnelis® ZM310 at 25 μm per side. For earthy areas, or areas that are subject to a higher level of abrasion, we recommend Magnelis® ZM430 at 35 μm per side.
Magnelis® can be provided in a wide range of steel grades, and thicknesses up to 6 mm. This flexibility allows operators to optimise the design and overall cost of their solar structures.
