New project: ECCA Quality Label|




                             29
Why an ECCA quality label?
§ Increasing amount of organic coated coils entering the 
  market are not suitable for external building 
  applications and do not fulfill EN and national 
  standards’ requirements

      § Negative influence on the image of coil coated 
        materials in general

      § Pressure on prepainted suppliers to follow this 
        product downgrading to be competitive

      § Detrimental for the long term product durability 
        and coil coating business
Quality Label
