Extending product life is essential for sustainable buildings

Recently, GreenCoat® reached the highest levels in the new UV and RC corrosion standards (prEN 10169:2022). The new Ruv5 class and RC5+ corrosion class use the same testing methods as previous classes, but testing times are extended.

Curious to see the new classes in action?

One example is the Longhouse, Netherlands designed by Rick Eijsbouts from Architecten Studio-pls and supplied by SCH Holland BV. It features a roof in matt appearance made from GreenCoat Pural BT to create sharp lines for a very graphical house.

GreenCoat Pural BT offers the highest RC5+ corrosion and Ruv5 classification (in matt appearance) for extended product life, which has already been confirmed by SSAB's GreenCoat® guarantees.
