                Among Rockport's products are:

                • Carbon and Stainless Cold Rolled steels produced on the only cold mill in the world designed to tandem roll austenitic and ferritic grades of stainless steel, as well as carbon steel.
                • Hot Dip Galvanized ZINCGRIP? products provide a tight metallurgical bond between the coating and substrate, offering the strength and formability of steel plus the corrosion protection of zinc.
                • Enameling Steels (VIT-PLUS? and I-F Enameling Steel) provide characteristics including formability, surface ?nish and gauge and flat-ness tolerances for enameling.
                • Hot Dip Galvannealed ZINCGRIP GA steel products are continuously coated on both sides with zinc, then induction heated to alloy the zinc with the substrate, creating a zinc-iron coating.

                The Rockport hot dip galvanizing and galvannealing line incorporates revolutionary proprietary technologies, including induction transition heating which provides rapid, accurate annealing temperature control. In addition, the Rockport Works line produces sheet steel at 80".
