Prelaq is usually used for roofing and wall cladding on buildings, for rainwater goods and flashings. Prelaq has very good formability, and can be worked by cutting, roll forming, bending and folding. Pre-painted steel is available in numerous combinations of steel materials, metal coatings and paint coats. Whatever the need, there’s a material to suit.

Roofing and cladding systems

Prelaq is available for a range of applications. Prelaq can be matched to different environmental conditions and quality requirements by coating the sheet with a variety of paint systems.

The paint systems have been developed together with paint suppliers both in laboratory tests and by follow up of practical applications in the construction industry over many years.
