Think Zinc. Optimising the future with innovations made of zinc.
We live zinc
Why our Metal Division is full of innovative power.
The Metal Division is one of the four business divisions of Grillo-Werke AG. Through our own research department and in cooperation with renowned research institutes, we develop innovative products made of zinc – in this we are a global specialist.
Why zinc? Zinc is a high-performance material used in electrical engineering, the construction industry, architecture, automobile production, mechanical engineering, the chemical and pharmaceutical industries and in corrosion protection. Zinc is sustainable, durable, resource-efficient, environmentally friendly and almost 100% recyclable without loss of quality.
These advantages also live on in our zinc products. Our environmentally friendly ZEP® (Zinc Extrusion Products) semi-finished products and our customised and high-performance zinc powder exemplify the innovative power of our products. But that’s not all: our product range in the Metal Division is diverse and our energy for new developments inexhaustible. So we find solutions and innovations for many different industries and numerous applications – from air-conditioning technology to the electrical industry and to the toy industry.
You can find a bit of Grillo almost everywhere!
Grillo Metall: Why our Metal Division is so diverse
Whether as sacrificial anodes for ships and offshore structures or as fine zinc anodes for the galvanic refinement of high-quality steel materials – our anodes always offer the perfect solution for corrosion protection.
For customer-specific applications, we offer our zinc strips in a wide range of alloy variants and dimensions. This means that our zinc strip has a wide range of applications.
Our zinc wire offers the best properties for corrosion protection by applying layers through thermal spraying. Different zinc alloys are used depending on the requirements.
We develop our zinc powder from selected, high-purity zinc qualities individually according to your requirements. Especially in the case of battery powders, it is characterised by very good electrical properties and low gassing.
Due to their excellent casting properties, our ZAMAK® fine zinc alloys enable the production of very complex die-castings with a wide range of surface design options.
Our Zinc Extrusion Products (ZEP®) are lead-free and sustainable zinc-based semi-finished wrought products. ZEP® semi-finished products are manufactured using state-of-the-art casting and extrusion processes.
Our globally patented corrosion protection system KKS-Beton offers long-term and sustainable protection for reinforced concrete structures. You can use it to protect car parks or bridges that are exposed to high levels of chloride.
