Product performance

Colorcoat® PVDF is carefully manufactured in a controlled process to ensure consistent quality. Colorcoat® PVDF is suitable for wall cladding systems and panels.

The actual durability of Colorcoat® PVDF in any particular location will depend upon the exact specification. The use of Colorcoat® PVDF in distinctly marine and heavily industrialised environments is not recommended. Tata Steel has a range of Colorcoat® products suitable for different environments and applications.
