GreenCoat Pural BT A1 Fire Rating - please click link to view datasheet.
GreenCoat PLX Pural BT colour coated steel is available in regular and matt finishes and offers a wide range of colours 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 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 colour 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 slightly structured surface helps to protect against mechanical wear 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.
