ArcelorMittal’s prepainted steel now comes with a guarantee of up to 35 years
With Granite® HDX and Granite® Storm, its new top-of-the-range painted steels for roofs and facades, ArcelorMittal now offers automatic guarantees of up to 35 years.
As of 1 April 2015, ArcelorMittal’s Granite® range comes with an up to 35-year automatic guarantee covering corrosion and paint, extendable upon request.
The guarantees offered for an outdoor building project are an important factor in the final choice of material to be used.
ArcelorMittal has vast experience in the production of organic coated steel, and with buildings erected more than 40 years ago using its steel, it is in a perfect position to assess the effects of time on its products. The company's integrated production process (from hot strip mill through to coil coating) guarantees full traceability and a high level of quality.
This is why ArcelorMittal has decided to pass on to its customers all the benefits of its quality improvements by increasing the automatic guarantees offered for its Granite® range. For its customers, this means greater sustainability and a longer lifetime – a double advantage that helps to reduce the environmental footprint of buildings.
Granite® HDX is a highly durable prepainted steel for demanding environments. Coated with polyurethane, it is the best choice for buildings with a long life expectancy or situated in corrosive environments, such as coastal or industrial environments.
Granite® Storm is a prepainted steel with a matt textured finish. It is ideally suited for roofs as it reflects the sunlight like ceramic tiles.
