OPTIMA® is a single coat painted steel product for residential, small commercial and industrial projects in benign corrosive environments. It has been designed to offfer the benefirs of Aluminium-ZInc coating with the added aesthetics and superior solar reflection of top quality coating technology. The paint system used on OPTIMA® provides superior performance and is excellent value for money.
The inner core of OPTIMA is produced by a process whereby rolled steel is continuously hot dipped into a patented alloy of 55% Aluminium, 43.5% Zinc and 1.5% Silicon.
This patened coating protecs the steel in two ways:
- The Aluminium componet of the coating provides a tough physical barrier between the extreme atmospheric conditions and the inner core of steel.
- The Zinc in the coating provides sacrificial protection and also protects the steel at the cut edges.
