the West Indies, China, Australia as well as on the coast of France.
quality color coated products are highly resistant to corrosion, UV
radiation as well as scratches. They provide builders with a
significantly lighter material compared to alternative solutions, like
concrete tiles and have lower temperature elongation than other
materials for reduced buckling.

recyclable. All GreenCoat products are easy to press, bend, cut, punch
and profile and are available in a wide variety of attractive colors and
