10 reasons to use GreenCoat

1. Unique combination of steel and coating

GreenCoat products have SSAB Nordic quality steel in the substrate, which is recognized worldwide as one of the best steels available on the market. All of our coatings have excellent technical properties. On top, most GreenCoat products have a patented, Bio-based Technology (BT) coating using Swedish rapeseed oil instead of traditional fossil fuel oil.

2. Leading, patented technology using Swedish rapeseed oil

Most of the GreenCoat products feature a Bio-based Technology (BT) coating with a substantial portion of the traditional fossil oil replaced by Swedish rapeseed oil – a patented SSAB technology – making them the only coatings on the market with a high bio-renewable content. All of our products are of course fully compliant with the REACH regulations. These benefits reduce environmental impact and allow for greener living.

3. Long lasting, superior surface for any weather

GreenCoat products provide high colour retention and long lasting finishes that resist rust, white rust and UV radiation as well as scratches and the build-up of dirt, for reduced maintenance.

4. Excellent formability – even by hand

GreenCoat products are highly formable and can easily be pressed, bent, cut, punched and profiled, allowing for the creation of complex shapes.

5. Wide colour offering

GreenCoat is available in a wide range of vibrant colours and exclusive finishes, with custom colours available.

7. Colour repeatability

GreenCoat products offer coatings with tight colour tolerances ensuring batch-to-batch colour consistency.


8. Rigorous outdoor testing

Over 40 years of extensive outdoor testing at sites located worldwide ensure that GreenCoat products withstand the harshest weather conditions like wind, rain, snow, saltwater, ice, UV radiation, high humidity and storms.

Ensuring quality through real outdoor testing is a priority for SSAB and, therefore, we go far beyond what is required by the EU regulations.
