Amendment to steel hot-dipped galvanized coil specification

Fastmarkets has amended the specifications for the weekly all-in assessment price for steel hot-dipped galvanized coil to clarify the included zinc coating extras and publish a non-market adjustment to reflect this extra.

The original consultation started on August 1 and was extended through September 30. The changes will come into effect starting from the next assessment on Thursday October 6. The non-market adjustment will be implemented on Thursday October 13 using official coating extras effective on October 6.

This change does not affect the thickness specifications for the base price, which will remain listed as 0.03-0.13 inch.
