ISIJ International, Special Issue on
“Cutting-edge technologies and scientific researches of zinc and zinc alloy coated steel sheet”

 For the surface treatment technology of the plating (especially, galvanized (GI) and galvannealed (GA)) steels, it is important to reveal the factors controlling the microstructure and the various properties of coating layer in order to improve the corrosion resistance and the mechanical properties of the plating layer. In this field, however, the basic research relatively lags behind the practical research which directly connects with manufacturing. Recently, some breakthrough technologies to meet demands to reducing the weight of vehicles and to environmental harmony properties are required. On the other hand, some advanced techniques, such as micromachining, high performance TEM and EPMA etc., have been developed. In such recent condition, the basic research so as to make some breakthrough in the GI and GA steels receives much attention.

 In this special issue, original or review papers on recent technologies and forefront research for Zn and Zn alloy coated steels will be invited. In addition to open call manuscript, selected papers will be invited from those presented in “11th International Conference on Zinc and Zinc Alloy Coated Steel Sheet in Tokyo (Galvatech2017 Tokyo)” on 12-16th Nov 2017.
