Dutch term or phrase: op de breuk
"Het is glanzend en blauwachtig op de breuk, gelijkmatig van kleur, glad en vrij van blazen, schilfers, scheuren, barsten en onderbrekingen, die de sterkte van het zink kunnen verminderen."

This is a Flemish text about roofing and they are talking about zinc sheet metal.
Zinc in rolls does have a bluish shimmer to it. Do they mean the cur end here?

Cut / trimmed edge
Explanation:
cut edge


Explanation:
I would say the cut edge.

Please see: "The introduction of continuously galvanized coil that is subsequently cut into sheet lengths, has tended to focus attention on the behaviour of cut edges which are exposed to atmospheric corrosion. Sheet, thinner than 1.6mm is usually adequately protected at cut edges by the catholic action of the zinc coating Similarly, side trimmed edges seldom present a corrosion problem"
