Standing seam with GreenCoat® PLXGreenCoat® PLX
GreenCoat® is a chrome free structured high build polyester. The nominal coating thickness is 36 microns. The beads in the paint make the surface more scratch resistant compared to a smooth coating. A substantial part of the solvents has also been replaced by renewable alternatives, most commonly Swedish rapeseed oil. The rapeseed oil reacts into the paint when cured and that makes it possible to use a polyester binder that gives a very flexible coating with improved colour and gloss retention.
The base material PLX is an extra soft sheet metal quality. The steel has practically no spring back so that tight seams can be achieved mechanically or manually.
