ABOUT GREENCOAT PLX PRO BT
GreenCoat PLX Pro BT can be used for industrial, commercial, or residential applications where factors such as appearance, mechanical resistance, fire safety and long lifetime are important. The material is suitable for the renovation of roofs and can be combined with extra thermal insulation to meet current building criteria on many roof designs including either cold or warm roof build-ups.
GreenCoat Products are:
Highly resistant to corrosion
UV radiation resistant
Highly resistant to scratches
They provide builders with a lightweight material that is easy to work with even down to -15 degrees
Long lasting appearance
GreenCoat products will retain their properties for a very long time if correctly maintained. Regular inspection and maintenance will ensure the longes possible useful life of the steel sheet. Minor damage to the paint coat, regardless of its size, should be quickly touched up in order to retain the useful life of GreenCoat. If regularly maintained, a steel sheet roof may last 150 years, or even longer.
To enable effective maintenance to be carried out the building must be inspected annually.
Condition of the paint, signs of chalking, discolouration or surface cracking, particularly where rainwater cannot keep the surface clean
Dirt in the gutters. Blocked gutters increase the risk of corrosion and consequent water leakage in the building
Accumulations of waste on the sheet increase the risk of corrosion, since the surface under the waste is kept continually humid.
Damage to the colour coating increases the risk of corrosion. Check whether there is damage even if the building is new.
Loose fasteners, pop rivet stems, drilling swarf or other metal objects resting directly on the roof could cause corrosion.
Wrong or incorrectly fitted fasteners could cause both leakage and corrosion.
Edge corrosion at cut edge of overlapping sheets and sheet ends. The corrosion can spread unless treated in good time.
Evaluate the condition and assess whether washing, cleaning, treatment of edge corrosion, touching up or repainting is necessary.
Remove the waste from the gutters, since this binds moisture and corrosive substances.
Remove the waste so that the sheet surfaces can dry out.
Consider whether touching up, repainting or changing of individual sheets is necessary depending on the extent and type of damage.
Remove the swarf and/or metal objects.
Replace the incorrect fasteners. If the thread is stripped change to the next larger size.
Clean thoroughly the corroded edge and repaint as described earlier.
