New PVC-Free Alternatives for Interior Decoration

October 18, 2004

SSAB Laminated Steel AB now presents two types of PVC-free alternatives, called Dobel 2000 and Dobel 2005. Dobel 2000 is steel sheet, painted with a thin layer of Polyester paint laminated with a printed polyester film and thus both light and PVC-free. While being competitive in price and, at the same time, twice as thick as comparable coatings, it gives, on the other hand, a limited range of varieties in appearance and is, in first place, suitable for large areas since the minimum quantity for this product is rather high. Also to bear in mind is the fact that a painted surface cannot be repaired. Just launched at SMM 2004 in Hamburg is the new Dobel 2005. The base material is hot-dip galvanized steel, laminated with a 130 microns thick new type of PVC-free flame retardant HMP film (Highly Modified Polyester). With equally high scratch resistance as for the traditional Dobel F105 and fully repairable, the new Dobel 2005 is similar in appearance to the Dobel F105 with an equally wide range of substrate choice and colors.
