Shallow VERCOR™ is a 9/16 inch deep deck that is manufactured from G90 galvanized steel with a yield strength of 80 ksi and is available in 22-26 gage. Galvanized VERCOR deck can be considered permanent form. Uncoated decks should not be considered permanent forms; therefore, the weight of the slab on uncoated decks should be deducted from the allowable load of the reinforced slab. Uncoated deck is available only as a special order.
Welding VERCOR™ decks lighter than 22 gage requires weld washers in accordance with AWS D1.3.
