GreenCoat – Nordic quality steel for harsh weather and greener living

 

GreenCoat® is SSAB’s brand for innovative, eco-conscious color coated steel solutions for the building industry. GreenCoat is the greenest product portfolio of high quality color coated steel for exterior building applications and also one of the most comprehensive for the entire building industry.

 

All products come with premium Nordic quality steel in the substrate, which is recognized worldwide as one of the best steels available on the market. On top, most GreenCoat products feature a Bio-based Technology (BT) coating where a substantial portion of the traditional fossil oil is replaced by Swedish rapeseed oil, which is unique on the market. The unique, patented BT coatings do not only offer environmental advantages, but also increased performance.

 

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.

What is green in GreenCoat?

Most GreenCoat products feature a Bio-based Technology (BT) with a substantial portion of the traditional fossil component replaced by a bio-based alternative.

As opposed to conventional coating formulas, the bio-based solvent becomes a permanent part of the final coating, making for a healthier environment and reducing the release of harmful substances into the air. 

The unique BT coating holds a worldwide patent and offers not only environmental advantages, but also increased performance. The GreenCoat color coated product portfolio is currently the market’s greenest offering for roofs, facades and rainwater systems.
