Choice of Coatings

The coated steel strip we supply and profile into sheeting and flashings is produced by leading suppliers including Corus, Arselor and Dobel, giving us control over quality and traceability of the material we use.

To produce high quality pre-coated sheeting a system of multi layer coatings is applied to zinc coated high tensile steel strip and oven cured to ensure optimum adhesion. This gives a sheet with excellent corrosion resistance and climatic protection together with abrasion resistance and high strength. We provide an extensive range of colours, where choice and aesthetic appeal can be matched to environmental and performance requirements.

PVC Plastisol Coated

Colours are for guidance purposes only - Numbers represent nearest BS/RAL reference.

Quality:

The steel substrate has a hot dipped galvanised coating of 275 grammes per square metre. The substrate is primed and 200 microns of leather grain embossed Plastisol are applied to the external surface. The reverse/internal surface is galvanised and coated with a standard alkali grey wash coat. This gives a very long life (typically 15 to 25 years to first maintenance with a life in excess of 40 years in normal environments) with a high resistance to scratching and damage.

UV Resistance:

The Plastisol applied consists of Polyvinyl Chloride based Thermoplastic Resins with short molecular chains for better UV resistance particularly suited to the construction sector.

Heat Resistance:

Maximum continuous temperature -40o C to +80o C.

Profile:

We manufacture PVC Plastisol coated sheeting in either 34/1000 profiled sheeting with a 34mm deep profile and a 166mm pitch in a 1000mm cover width which can be used at a minimum roof pitch of 4°, or 3” corrugated profile of 10, 12 or 13 corrugations of 3 inches giving 2ft 6 “/ 760mm, 914mm or 990mm width cover which can be used at a minimum roof pitch of 10°.

Tolerances:

All dimensions are subject to roll forming tolerances.

Thickness:

PVC Plastisol coated 34/1000 profiled sheeting is available in 0.5mm and 0.7mm thickness.

Colour:

We supply PVC Plastisol in standard colours from stock: Goosewing Grey, Juniper green, Olive Green, Moorland Green, Mushroom, Merlin Grey, Van Dyke Brown, White and Black.

Storage & Handling:

Polyester Paint Coated

Quality:

The steel substrate has a hot dipped galvanised coating of 275 grammes per square metre. The substrate is primed and coated with 25 microns of high grade Polyester enamel paint. The reverse/internal surface is galvanised and coated with a standard alkali grey wash coat. This gives long life (typically 8 to 12 years to first maintenance with a life in excess of 20 years in normal environments) but only has a moderate resistance to scratching.

Heat Resistance:

Maximum continuous temperature -40o C to +80o C.

Profile:

We manufacture Polyester coated sheeting in either 34/1000 profiled sheeting with a 34mm deep profile and a 166mm pitch in a 1000mm cover width which can be used at a minimum roof pitch of 4°, or 3” corrugated profile of 10, 12 or 13 corrugations of 3 inches giving 2ft 6 “/ 760mm, 914mm or 990mm width cover which can be used at a minimum roof pitch of 10°.

Tolerances:

All dimensions are subject to roll forming tolerances.

Thickness:

Polyester paint coated sheeting is available in 0.55mm and 0.70mm thickness.

Colour:

Polyester paint finish sheeting is available in standard colours, Juniper Green, Slate Blue, Grey, Brown and Black.

Storage & Handling:

For advice on storage and handling please consult the installation section of our website.

Typical Applications:

Cladding, roofing and other building components, curtain walling, infil panels, partitioning, portable accommodation, cold stores, garage doors and vehicle panels.
