  Corrugated galvanised iron - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Corrugated galvanised iron roofing in Mount Lawley, Western Australia.
The sheets are usually galvanised to prevent the iron from rusting.
Galvanised sheets with simple corrugations are also being gradually displaced by 55%Al-Zn coated steel (GALVALUME® steel) or coil-painted sheets with complex profiles.

Corrugated wrought iron, in almost the same form as found today, was imported into Australia from the late 1840's.
This iron has a 125mm (5") pitch (the width of the corrugation) and is of a heavier gauge (thickness) than its modern counterpart.

 Corrugated galvanised iron (via CobWeb/3.1 planetlab2.cs.umd.edu)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
Corrugated galvanised iron, commonly abbreviated CGI, is a building material composed of sheets of hot-dip galvanised mild steel cold-rolled to have a linear corrugated pattern in them.
For roofing purposes, the sheets are laid somewhat like tiles, with a lateral overlap of two or three corrugations, and a vertical overlap of about 150 mm, to provide for waterproofing.
Galvanised sheets with simple corrugations are also being gradually displaced by zincalume or powder-coated sheets with complex profiles.

Light purlins, nailed directly to the portal rafter, supported the corrugated fibre cement roof sheet, while infill wall panels between the portal columns supported the weather board lining to the bottom half of the external wall and asbestos sheeting to the top half (see figure 8).
Corrugated galvanised iron had become rare for all types of building by 1943 so painted or fl corrugated iron was used for walling.
Corrugated fibre cement roof sheet was widely used instead of galvanised iron.

The corrugations are described in terms of pitch (the distance between two crests) and depth (the height from the top of a crest to the bottom of a trough).
By eliminating a frame, nails and their holes are also eliminated, so that the corrugated iron remains waterproof.

 Hot-dip galvanizing - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (via CobWeb/3.1 planetlab2.cs.umd.edu)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
It is the process of coating iron or steel with a thin zinc layer, by passing the steel through a molten bath of zinc at a temperature of around 460 °C. Zinc "rusts" to form zinc oxide, a fairly strong material that stops further rust, protecting the steel below from the elements.
Hot-dip galvanized steel strip (also sometimes loosely referred to as galvanized iron) is extensively used for applications requiring the strength of steel and resistance to corrosion.
Individual metal articles, such as steel girders or wrought iron gates, can be hot-dip galvanized by a process called batch galvanizing.
