STORAGE AND HANDLING

If colour coated sheets are to be stored for any time prior to forming or installation, they must be stored in dry, well ventilated conditions. Storage which allows water (including condensation) to be trapped between the sheets may damage the coating beyond repair

Some Do’s and Don’ts that needs to be followed as below

Do
right-icon

  Always keep material in a dry, shaded and good ventilated area 

right-icon

 If not required for immediate use, provide cover to protect the material

right-icon

If Sheets become wet during storage, it should be separated without delay & surface moisture removed with clean cloth.
The steel sheets then be stacked so that air circulation completes the drying process

right-icon

 Material to be kept slightly above the ground by using wooden rubber plank 

Don't No
w-icon

 Do not keep the material on wet floor (water, rain. etc.)

w-icon

Moisture or water penetration between the sheets through the wooden pallets which causes damage hence to be avoided

w-icon

 Prevent water seepage inside the packed coils and packets

w-icon

Metal-on-metal contact should be avoided whenever possible

w-icon

Under no circumstances should the material be stored near or come in contact with salt water, corrosive chemicals, ash, or fumes generated or released inside the building or nearby plants, foundries, plating works, kilns, fertilizer, and wet or green lumber

w-icon

Do not slide sheet on rough surface or over each other 

w-icon

 Contact with water and mud should be strictly prohibited 

Avoiding White Rust to avoid corrosion

corrosion-icon1

Ingress of water in a stack of colour coated sheets to be avoided

corrosion-icon2

Condensation within a coil or sheets due to rapid changes in temperature

corrosion-icon3

Prolonged/adverse storage or inadequate protection during transportation allowing considerable water ingress between stacked coils or sheets results into red rust
