What does "SECC" mean: zinc-plated steel sheet?


Q. I'd like to know specifications of 1.0 m/m thickness zinc-plated steel sheet per Japan JIS SECC standard. Who can help me and advise the equivalent ASTM codes?

Steve Wu

Q. Speaking of SECC, does SECC stand for the type of raw material (no coating) or is SECC the specification of the coating on the steel? Our Taiwan metal supplier uses this and because of the language barrier it is not quite clear to me what SECC actually stands for, especially when they inform me that it is RoHS compliant. Any clarification of the definition of SECC would be appreciated.

Q. Does somebody has a material specification and a confirmation of the RoHS compliance of the SECC material ?

Let me know

A. Hi, Al.

It is neither inherently RoHS-compliant, nor RoHS-noncompliant. Both trivalent and hexavalent chromates are available; the former will be compliant and the latter will not be -- so you should specify RoHS-compliant SECC if that is what you need. Good luck.

You can check this with China Steel for the electroplating zinc steel sheet or coil. They have three types of SECC steel. They call them SECC1, SECC2 and SECCT. The zinc content is labeled as ZZ10.
