After years of research and testing at SSAB, GreenCoat Pural is now available as an upgraded version using the patented Bio-based Technology (BT) coating, which is made from Swedish rapeseed oil. The new product is named GreenCoat Pural BT and is part of the GreenCoat premium steel product range, which is currently the greenest collection of color coated steel products for the building industry.
For almost 30 years, GreenCoat Pural has been the benchmark for roofing applications having the highest level of durability to withstand the harshest climates on earth. Consumers are provided with a roof that retains its appearance, is easy to maintain and is cost effective throughout its lifecycle. Superior technical properties, such as Ruv4 UV radiation and RC5 corrosion resistance, as well as resistance from mechanical wear, provide a maximum useful product lifetime.
Modern, sustainable building trends
Current building statistics show the increasing demand for the use of sustainable materials in buildings. To address these modern building trends and their growing popularity worldwide, the upgraded GreenCoat Pural BT now offers builders a level of sustainability found nowhere else on the market, in addition to enhanced performance.
“With GreenCoat color coated steels, we provide the most sustainable products with the best technical properties for the building industry. GreenCoat steels have the lowest thermal expansion of all metals to guarantee a clean look without buckling or deformation, for years to come,” says Olavi Huhtala, Executive Vice President SSAB Europe at SSAB Group.
