  • Greener

  • Better

  • With a bio based coating

Following some very exciting improvements to the coating and manufacturing process, Prelaq Nova PLX will now be marketed as GreenCoat PLX BT





SSAB Swedish Steel now use Bio Based technology (BT) which removes a substantial portion of the traditional fossil content in the metal coating. These coatings now include Rapeseed and Linseed oils. Naturally occurring substances that are environmentally friendly yet offer strong, colour-fast coatings


GreenCoat PLX BT is a high quality roofing and cladding material produced by SSAB Swedish Steel and distributed across the UK and Ireland by Newell Roofing Products Limited. The material is used for Standing Seam roof or wall cladding (also called Long Strip Roofing) and to produce interlocking cassette panels. GreenCoat PLX BT has been used extensively across Europe and in its home country of Sweden where it has been developed to withstand the Nordic climate where the summers are warm and the winters are cold. Such low temperatures and harsh environment do not compromise the material.


GreenCoat PLX BT offers a high level of flexibility, and as it has no spring-back, it has a feel of Zinc or Copper when bent by hand. This malleability means the material is easy to combine with other building materials offering unlimited possibilities to create bold roof designs. The high strength and guaranteed long -life of GreenCoat PLX BT ensures it is an excellent Zinc or Copper alternative.


GreenCoat PLX 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.
