ECCA grants Premium® status to six ArcelorMittal products

22 January 2015

The European Coil Coating Association (ECCA) has granted its prestigious ECCA Premium® status to six ArcelorMittal products.

ECCA’s Premium® labelling scheme, which it launched last year, assures users of pre-painted metal they are getting quality and sustainable products.

Manufactured at the ArcelorMittal Flat Carbon Europe plant in Liège, Belgium, the ArcelorMittal products now carrying the ECCA Premium® label are: the Granite® Standard, Granite® HD, Granite® HDS, Granite® HDX, Granite® Deep Mat 35 Microns and Granite® Flex, a range of high-performance external steel coatings from the company’s Nature collection.

The ECCA Premium® Quality and Sustainability label represents value and peace of mind for users of pre-painted aluminium and steel products by assuring colour durability, optimum corrosion resistance and suitability for creative design applications. The scheme also guarantees that the metal used is sourced and manufactured in a safe and environmentally responsible way.

For licensed pre-painted metal producers, the ECCA Premium® Quality and Sustainability label offers a distinctive and competitive advantage over their competitors. It is granted only to coil coaters who have successfully passed inspections performed by duly certified, independent auditing bodies and demonstrates manufacturers’ dedication to quality and sustainability.

The first two companies to which ECCA granted its ECCA Premium® Quality and Sustainability label were Hydro Aluminium Rolled Products and Novelis Italia. ECCA plans to inspect a further six ArcelorMittal sites over the next few weeks.
