Colour-coated metal facade products are a durable way to use colours in all sizes of monotone surfaces and colour compositions.
We offer zinc-coated steel products, which are painted on both sides. The coating on the backside is primer plus epoxy. Powder paint is available for both aluminium and zinc-coated steel. Aluminium is PVDF painted with primer and a colour coat. Colour-coated materials are available with semi-gloss and matt finishes in selected colours. 

GreenCoat Hiarc is a zinc-coated steel painted with a primer and colour layers, all done in carefully monitored factory conditions.

Patented BT coating technology

In many of our products we use GreenCoat colour coated steel. GreenCoat is Bio-based Technology (BT) coating where a substantial portion of traditional fossil oil is replaced by Swedish rapeseed oil. GreenCoat products are highly resistant to corrosion, UV radiation as well as scratches. They provide builders with a lightweight material that is easy to work with even down to -15°C.

UV resistance describes how well the coating is able to keep its original colour and gloss levels in accordance with EN10169. The higher the class, the better the resistance.

Corrosivity categories describe the outdoor climate conditions in accordance with EN12944. The higher the category, the more corrosive environment.

Aluminium

Brushed design aluminium produces a brushed, directional shine combined with the high gloss of a varnish layer.

Glass

Glass creates a high gloss and durable flat surface for the facade.

Pattern-painted aluminium

The painted pattern on the metal sheet makes the surface livelier when observed at very close proximity. 

Cor-Ten

Cor-Ten is a solid steel that has a natural, rugged patina that ages continuously in a unique way.

Copper, Brass, Bronze

Patina forming on the wall and various pre-patina options give these solid metals a live, genuine surface for very long time spans.
