Product performance

<p>Colorcoat® High Reflect is carefully manufactured in a controlled process to ensure consistent quality and is suitable for interior roof and wall liner trays, cassette systems and composite panels in dry and unpolluted environments. Foam composite panels should always be stacked liner to liner with Colorcoat® High Reflect until cool.</p> <p> </p> <p>Colorcoat® High Reflect is not suitable for external applications and to ensure it is fitted in the optimum condition, outdoor storage should be minimised during the construction process.</p> <p> </p> <p>Colorcoat® High Reflect can be expected to last the life of the building in normal, controlled, dry and unpolluted environments.</p> <p> </p> <p>Tata Steel has a range of Colorcoat® products suitable for different environments and applications.</p> <p> </p>
