Production can be carried out on both cold-rolled and heat galvanised steel in thicknesses from 0,4 to 1,25 mm. The maximum width is 850mm. We can also coat Aluminium
Production proceeds as an ongoing process, where coils of untreated steel are exposed to various treatment processes, which clean and prepare the steel, before final lacquering or laminating. Automatic checking takes place throughout the process; for colour correction and film thickness, using methods developed by the trade sector’s parent body, ECCA, (European Coil Coating Association). The steel is then finally wound into a finished surface-treated coil for split rings, or is cut into format plates which suit most production requirements.
Coils can be provided with many different surface coatings, eg laminates in various patterns and/or types. Smooth or rough coatings with Plastisol. Matt or shiny polyester lacquering in a vast range of colours.
