NLMK Starts Manufacture of Polymer Coated Rolled Stock with Enhanced Decorative Properties
NLMK Group presented new type of product in the domestic market: multilayer polymer coated rolled stock. As compared to a normal coating, this type has an enhanced durability and an attractive habitus due to lacquer coating. The rolled products are to be used for facades, rooting and interior finishing.
The production technology includes coating of the galvanized sheet with at least three layers. First the coil is pre-coated then coated with colored paint-and-lacquer coating followed by lacquer or colorless enamel.
Additional layers are used to achieve gloss, depth effect and, with some colors, 3D effect. In addition to attractive habitus, this type of product has enhanced resistance to corrosion, UV rays and humidity allowing it to be efficiently used in construction of buildings in any climatic environment.
The first batch (“bronze metallic”) is already shipped to a customer. In May NLMK is dispatching “starry sky” samples to its key customers.
"NLMK Group was the first among Russian companies to master production of polymer coated steels in 1991. Our more than 25-year experience as well as a long-term cooperation with suppliers of paint-and-lacquer products allow us to improve technologies offering new types of products meeting the demanding requirements of our customers”, commented I. Guschin, Vice-President for Sales, NLMK Group.
