It has been successfully impact-tested by a heavy truck and has showed its remarkable resistance against the crash force.

All of these make it outstanding at long-term corrosion and rust resistance. Meanwhile, it costs effectively and is widely used as a visual and physical barrier for protection against run-off road collision.
