Steel Sheet Meets Emissivity Requirements with Chromium-free Polymer Coating

U.S. Steel Corp. has expanded its Coated Steel Sheet family of products.

U.S. Steel Corp. has expanded its Coated Steel Sheet family of products.

U.S. Steel Corp. has added ACRYLUME E PLUS Coated Steel Sheet to its family of products. The new coated flat-rolled steel has a chromium-free clear emissive polymer coating and provides the quality and performance attributes inherent to ACRYLUME with improved thermal emittance.

ACRYLUME E PLUS offers the environmentally conscious metal building construction industry a chromium-free emissive acrylic coating on GALVALUME Coated Steel Sheet, which is designed to meet challenging solar reflectance and thermal emittance regulations. Prior to the introduction of this product, the emissivity requirements could only be met through pre-painted GALVALUME products. ACRYLUME E PLUS also meets numerous European Union environmental directives including Restriction of Hazardous Substances Directive (RoHS) and Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemical Substances (REACH).

The original ACRYLUME, which meets all current environmental guidelines in the United States, will continue to be available to customers for commonly used applications such as metal roofing and siding.

The new ACRYLUME E PLUS provides users with the same benefits as traditional ACRYLUME. ACRYLUME CF, ACRYLUME E PLUS minimizes staining and discoloration issues during storage, handling and installation. It does not require the application of lubricants prior to rollforming.

The S-5-Q was specifically developed to accommodate large, round “bulb” seam configurations up to 29 millimeters without piercing the metal roof panel. It will also fit smaller profiles that were not seamed correctly, thereby rendering the panel unable to utilize the intended attachment product. The two-piece design allows the clamp to be installed anywhere along the length of the rib.
