NLMK Group, an international steel company with assets in Russia, Europe and the USA, has brought a new multi-layered pre-painted steel to the Russian market. The multi-layered polymer coating is more robust and attractive thanks to its lacquer finish. This steel product is designed for use in facade finishes, roofing, and interior decor.
The new steel is produced by applying at least three layers of coating to galvanized strip. First, the strip is coated with a primer, then painted and finally, a lacquer finish or a colorless enamel is applied.
The extra layers provide shine, depth and a 3D effect in some colors. In addition to the eye-catching appearance, the pre-painted steel benefits from greater resistance to corrosion, ultraviolet rays and moisture, which makes it suitable for use in the construction of buildings regardless of climate.
The first batch of the steel, ‘metallic bronze’ in color, has already been dispatched to the customer. In May, samples of ‘starry sky’ colored steel will be presented to key customers.
Ilya Guschin, NLMK Group’s VP for Sales, said: “NLMK Group was the first Russian steelmaker to master pre-painted steel production in 1991. Over 25 years of experience and expertise and ongoing engagement with paint and varnish producers have helped us to enhance our solutions and offer new types of products to cover the evolving needs of our customers”.
NLMK Group manufactures pre-painted steel at NLMK Lipetsk and at NLMK Strasbourg in France. The total production capacity of the four pre-painting lines in Russia and Europe is ca. 700,000 tons per year. More than 95% of pre-painted steel is supplied to the construction industry. NLMK Group’s share in the pre-painted steel market in Russia is estimated at 23.6%. (NLMK/Ukrainian metal)
