GreenCoat PLX Pro BT
Download data sheet
GreenCoat PLX Pro BT color coated steel is available in regular and matt finishes and offers a wide range of colors inspired by Nordic nature. It uses a patented bio-based coating having Swedish rapeseed oil instead of traditional fossil oil in the paint, which is unique on the market. SSAB holds a worldwide patent for this coating technology (Bio-based Technology, BT).
This product has been developed together with tinsmiths in order to obtain optimum product properties combined with Nordic quality steel and an excellent coating. The result is a unique, premium product for tinsmiths.
GreenCoat PLX Pro BT color coated steel offers a high level of durability for standing-seam systems. It is highly formable, even by hand, and has practically no spring-back, which allows for very tight folding.
GreenCoat PLX Pro BT color coated steel offers a coating that is optimized to resist weathering, resulting in excellent corrosion resistance (RC5+). The product possesses excellent gloss retention and color fastness.
GreenCoat PLX Pro BT possesses excellent forming properties enabling very demanding folding even down to -15°C, allowing for year round installation at lower costs.
The reverse side of the sheet is painted with a two-layer Limestone Turquoise color backside coating.
GreenCoat PLX Pro BT complies with current REACH regulations and is fully chromate-free.
SSAB’s color coated steels are all manufactured according to EN 10169.
GreenCoat and PLX are trademarks of the SSAB group of companies.

1) Classification into corrosion resistance categories is based on blistering, delamination and damage on bend of the coating after four years exposure in natural outdoor testing sites as specified in EN 10169.
2) PLX fulfills the requirements of EN 10346 DX54D.
3) Maximum steel thickness is 1.5 mm and maximum steel width depends on steel thickness. For other steel dimensions or steel grades please contact SSAB Tech Support.
Below are the colors currently available. Other colors can be agreed upon separately.

Note for Metallic colors: To ensure tonal consistency of colors on a single exterior face, all material must come from the same production batch. Also the directionality of surfaces has to be consistent especially when sheets are cut to size.
Unless otherwise specified, the reverse side of the sheet is painted with a two-layer coating to further improve the corrosion resistance of the end product. The coating provides good adhesion properties to many adhesives and foams; nevertheless the compatibility needs to be tested case-specifically.
|Nominal Coating Thickness (primer + top coat)||12 µm|
|Corrosion Resistance||Min CPI3|
For easy material identification the reverse side of the sheet is stamped with the GreenCoat logo and the product name. The production year is marked to ease material traceability and can be referred to within the guarantee period. An arrow shows the direction of production to ensure installation in a uniform direction.
