General Product Description

GreenCoat PLX Pural BT color coated steel is available in matt and metallic finishes and offers a wide range of colors inspired by Nordic nature. It uses a patented bio-based coating with Swedish rapeseed oil, 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 Pural BT offers the highest level of durability for standing-seam systems. Product is recommended to be used in all premium tinsmith applications. It is highly formable, even by hand, and has practically no spring-back, which allows for very tight folding.

GreenCoat PLX Pural BT color coated steel offers a coating that is optimized to resist weathering, resulting in excellent UV resistance (Ruv5 for matt appearance) and corrosion classes (RC5+). The product has excellent scratch resistance and is easy to handle during manufacturing. GreenCoat PLX Pural 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 grey backside coating.

GreenCoat PLX Pural BT complies with current REACH regulations and is fully chromate-free.

SSAB’s color coated steels are all manufactured according to EN 10169.

GreenCoat Pural and PLX are trademarks of the SSAB group of companies.

      Note: 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. Compared to solid colors, larger measured color variation between production batches is typical for metallic colors, even if color is visually stable

      Reverse Side Coating

      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.

          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.
