Ternium Losacero is a galvanized structural steel flooring system for modern, rapid installation of great capacity and structural resistance created to interact with the concrete. It is ideal for use in building slabs in all types of buildings as steel roofing deck.
Steel manufactured by Ternium in its Guerrero Industrial Works for Ternium Losacero production uses 70% iron ore (direct reduced iron) and 30% steel scrap as source of iron.
Ternium Losacero has three main functions:
1) To act as a work platform during construction, that is, it serves as a formwork for the casting,
2) To provide positive reinforcement by bending to the concrete slab and
3) To provide resistance for horizontal loads.
Ternium Mexico manufactures several types of Ternium Losacero, the difference between the types of Ternium Losacero lies in the size of the cant, which provides specific characteristics during installation.
