More than just maximum protection


The difference when compared to other products. The impending ban of chromate (Chromium VI) as part of the new REACH Directive and environmental measures have led many steelmakers to switch to chromate-free production methods.

colofer® has been an ECO pioneer since 1998 and we have acquired more in-depth manufacturing knowledge and product expertise in the field of chrome-free and chromate-free coating technologies than any other steelmaker. Our unrivaled experience enables us to offer guarantee periods of up to 40 years for applications under the harshest conditions.

Chromating greatly influences product performance (corrosion protection, coating adhesion). Accordingly, a ban constitutes a massive interference with the production process and has an adverse effect on product performance.

  • Highest level of corrosion protection (RC 5)
  • Highest UV resistance class (RUV 4)

  • Mechanical robustness (40 N)

  • Best forming properties (1.5 T)

  • Longest warranty (40 years)

Why you can rely on colofer® PLUS

Numerous international customers rely on the versatility and performance of colofer® PLUS and thus set the standard for products that are one step ahead.

With colofer® PLUS, you get up to 40 years of guarantee – automatically, no strings attached. For particularly demanding environments or guarantee requirements that go beyond standard guarantees, there is the possibility of acquiring special object-related guarantees.

Extremely flat

The special manufacturing method for the ultraplan substrate lends colofer® PLUS an extremely flat surface free of medium waviness. Thanks to the ultraplan substrate, colofer® facades not only look particularly aesthetic as a result of their high quality coating, but also because of their perfectly flat surface.

Standard colors


The unique design of the production line makes it possible to achieve a very high degree of reliability in the reproduction of color shades.


Intense colors even after many years. colofer® PLUS offers an extremely wide range of colors and two surface finishes (smooth andtextured). Since only the highest-quality paints are used for production, colofer® PLUS exceeds the requirements for the highest UVresistance category RUV 4 according to EN 10169. Even after many years, the facade shines as intensely colored as on the first day.
