And it's called corrugated steel where I'm from. And no, it doesn't rust easily but generally lasts decades. --66.41.154.0 (talk) 20:59, 2 July 2014 (UTC)

Tin[edit]

Was tin also used in such a way? Badagnani (talk) 22:45, 6 July 2008 (UTC)

Never run across this. Galv was called "Tin" in Australia (still is in some places) and possibly elsewhere. Given the relative abundance (and consequently cost) of iron vs tin over time it is unlikely it would be used in the same way - Peripitus (Talk) 12:00, 12 July 2008 (UTC)
