The use of electrogalvanized steel to enhance the corrosion resistance of automobile body panels affects the forming of sheet steel. The zinc structure and morphology, influenced by electrolytic and hydrodynamic conditions during deposition, alters the drawing character of the sheet. Steel plated with zinc deposits exhibiting strong basal (0001) plane and strong pyramid plane (101x) orientation were prepared. In this U.S. Bureau of Mines study, forming properties were related to deposit morphology and structure and compared to those for commercial products.
