Proposal to adjust steel HDG all-in assessment

Fastmarkets is proposing to adjust its weekly all-in assessment price for steel hot-dipped galvanized coil, following an amendment to the included zinc coating extras effective Thursday October 6.

Fastmarkets held a 60-day consultation - beginning August 1 and extended through September 30 - to clarify the thickness of the steel hot-dipped galvanized coil for the zinc coating extras. As a result, the weekly all-in price now reflects zinc coating extras for coil that is 0.04-inch thick.

The zinc coating extras will be adjusted to $8 per hundredweight ($160 per short ton) on Thursday October 13, based on mills’ coating extras effective October 6.

That means $8 per cwt will be added to the base price (MB-STE-0186) on October 13 to calculate the all-in price (MB-STE-0212). For example, Fastmarkets’ assessment for steel hot-dipped galvanized coil (cold-rolled base), fob mill US was $53 per cwt on Thursday September 29. With the new zinc extras, the assessment for steel hot-dipped galvanized coil 0.03-0.13 inch G90 (cold-rolled base), fob mill US would be calculated at $61 per cwt.
