Prelaq Energy is a prepainted steel sheet that has been developed by SSAB. It is used among other things in the walls and ceilings, both exteriors and interiors. Prelaq Energy has properties that makes the building’s energy consumption reduced and the indoor climate improved.
With the help of "Prelaq Energy web calculator", it is easy to calculate how various factors affect the flow of energy in a building where Prelaq Energy is used. The factors include insulation, insulation thickness, solar radiation, outdoor temperature, indoor temperature, wind speed and plate color.
The values presented in the calculations are compared with corresponding values for buildings with conventional color coated sheet.
The advantages of Prelaq Energy are reduced costs of energy for heating and cooling, better indoor climate all-year-around, increased lifetime of the building envelope, reduced thermal movements in the material and not least important, it contributes to a sustainable development and reduces the CO₂ emissions.
At the world expo 2010 in Shanghai, the Swedish pavilion will be clad in Prelaq Energy.
