NLMK Lipetsk, NLMK Group’s flagship production facility, and Grand Line, the Russian producer of construction materials, have set up mass production of Satin Matt and PurLite Matt premium-class pre-painted steel products. NLMK will supply more than 2000 tonnes of these steel products to Grand Line over the course of the year for onward processing.
The products NLMK and Grand Line are manufacturing are designed for making construction materials such as profiled sheets, metal roof tiles and façade cladding. They are fully compliant with European and Russian quality standards, and boast superior use properties for consumers thanks to decorative surface texture and high performance characteristics. This includes greater corrosion and UV protection and higher ductility for complex moulding. The usable lifespan of products made from these steels is 1.5-2 times longer than that of standard quality steel.
Ilya Gushchin, NLMK Vice President, Sales, said:
“NLMK has been developing technology for the production of steel with a wide range of premium-quality coatings for many years now. Our product offering that was developed in collaboration with Grand Line is a great example of two brands working together. It will enable both companies to strengthen their position in the HVA market.”
Satin Matt: cold-rolled hot-dip galvanized steel. Base thickness: 0.5 mm. Zinc mass: 180 g/m2. Polyester coating thickness: 35 µm.
PurLite Matt: cold-rolled hot-dip galvanized steel. Base thickness: 0.5 mm. Zinc mass: 180 g/m2. Polyurethane coating thickness: 35 µm.

The guarantee period of the decorative finishes ranges from 12 to 18 years, and from 28 to 30 years for corrosion protection, depending on the category of the coating, the climate and the conditions of usage.
