Caring for UniCote Steel
One of the most common and direct causes of corrosion is when metals that are dissimilar come in direct contact and react to one another. In order to reduce corrosion, make sure you do not have water dripping from copper or brass directly onto UniCote. This includes tanalised timber which contains copper. Furthermore, lead flashings should not be used in conjunction with your UniCote corrugated steel.
