GreenCoat® color coated steel roofs


Roofs have to deal with Mother Nature´s every mood. A steel roof is a natural choice standing strong against the toughest weather requirements.

Create expressive steel façades using standing seam systems, profiles, sandwich panels or cassettes/lamellas.

GreenCoat® for rainwater systems

Rainwater systems

Rainwater systems contribute to the look of the overall building. Steel rainwater systems are a perfect match for all types of roofs.

Sustainability: bio-based coatings and fossil-free steel

Coatings made from Swedish rapeseed oil

Bio-based coatings made from Swedish rapeseed oil

Most GreenCoat® products feature a bio-based coating which uses a substantial portion of Swedish rapeseed oil instead of traditional fossil fuel oils.

This unique solution from SSAB reduces the environmental footprint significantly –  and makes the GreenCoat® product portfolio the market’s greenest offer for roofs, façades and rainwater systems.

GreenCoat® reaches highest UV and corrosion classes

Long product life plays an important role when specifying building materials. The new UV (Ruv5) and RC corrosion (RC5+) classes from the new standard EN10169:2022 ensure that building products have an extremely long product life, which has already been confirmed by SSAB’s GreenCoat® guarantees. You will find the Ruv and RC classes in the technical datasheet of our GreenCoat® products.
