Tata Steel has launched its new generation three layer Colorcoat Prisma® pre-finished steel, offering superior ultraviolet (UV) resistance and durability
The latest evolution is based on revolutionary three-layer technology that delivers greatly enhanced aesthetics with superior colour and gloss retention. The new Colorcoat Prisma product pushes the boundaries of pre-finished steel and will be available with an extended Confidex® Guarantee for up to 40 years.
Utilising clear coat technology, often used within the automotive industry, the new Colorcoat Prisma is a truly enhanced and robust pre-finished steel product. The three-layer product provides added UV resistance and corrosion protection.
To utilise the experience from previous generations of the product Colorcoat Prisma also incorporates Tata Steel’s Galvalloy® metallic coating to provide corrosion protection.
Fully manufactured within the UK, the step-change pre-finished steel product consists of three layers that are uniquely manufactured in one pass, on an upgraded production line.
The enhanced product is also available in new colours ideal for wall applications. Providing architects with increased design choice.
Samples of the new Colorcoat Prisma range have been rigorously tested at more than seven worldwide locations in varying climates such as Florida, Malaysia and Singapore. Exposed to artificial UVA, UVB and Xenon rays in accelerated testing, the product demonstrated a significant improvement in UV resistance.
The rigorous testing program has included British Board of Agrément (BBA), Russian GOST standards, Polish ITB, U-mark in Germany, and ASTM certification.
Peter Barker, Manager Product Development at Tata Steel said: “Fully REACH compliant, the new Colorcoat Prisma offers an even more durable and aesthetic building envelope solution that also goes the extra mile to support BREAAM and LEED certification.
“A superior product with an enhanced lifespan, we’re so confident in its ability, we’ve extended the length of its Confidex Guarantee by a significant ten year period. This will provide building owners with peace of mind for up to 40 years upon registration.”
