ArcelorMittal first steel company granted with ECCA Premium® Quality and Sustainability label for outdoor prepainted products

Paris, 21 May 2015 - ArcelorMittal, the world largest prepainted steel producer, has been granted beginning of this year its first ECCA Premium® Quality and Sustainability label.

The ECCA Premium® label ensures the quality and sustainability of pre-painted metals for outdoor applications. ECCA developed the label to differentiate quality products which meet European standards from inferior imports.
The benefits of ECCA Premium® Quality and Sustainability label are numerous for customers, developers, builders in the construction market:

  • Long term aesthetics and durability of colours: a defined and minimum paint system thickness is compulsory to ensure the beauty of the building
  • Long lasting buildings - robust and resistant against harsh environment conditions: the thickness of the metallic coating layer is optimized to protect the steel substrate
  • Creative design allowing complex and original forms: flexibility and adhesion of the paint are key characteristics to allow smooth processing operations
  • Sustainability: the steel used is manufactured in a safe and environmentally responsible way; free of heavy metals or Substances of Very High Concern (REACH), therefore ECCA Premium® contributes to green building labels

Granite® Standard, HD, HDS, HDX, Deep Mat and Flex products have been certified on our Belgian production lines of Liège.
We are very proud of this first certification” says Sake Van Gils, manager of Product Offer Management Industry. “It is a team work and I would like to congratulate in particular the quality and production teams who performed a great job.”

Certifications are carried out by a panel of independent certification bodies. Once a line is certified, the ECCA Premium® label can be applied to any product produced on that line.

“This ECCA Premium® Quality and Sustainability label for ArcelorMittal confirms our engagement towards excellence for the products that we deliver to the construction market. We are already in progress to certify the whole range of our outdoor prepainted steels of all our organic coating lines”, says Jérôme Guth manager of Business Development Construction.
