FACADE COATINGS

As a facade material, paint-coated steel sheet metal is a durable and easy-to-care material. The mouldability of steel offers designers diverse opportunities to create the most suitable appearance for the building for any environment.

Metehe’s facade coating selection has several colour and coating options for finishing the building to suit its environment.

Paint-coated steel sheets are manufactured in accordance with the EN-10169-1 standard. To ensure the conformity between Colorcoat products, Tata Steel uses laboratory tests to test the products’ corrosion, UV radiation, chemical and wear resistance. All product tests are carried out in approved laboratories in accordance with international standards.
