Camouflaged Colorcoat ® products

Shotton starts to produce a Colorcoat ® product with camouflage properties. A specially formulated polyester coating is applied to galvanised strip steel on the No.1 line to form a new product known as NATO green. The new low gloss coating is intended to mimic the infra-red background reflection of wavelengths used for infra red surveillance, making structures clad with the product less easy to detect. The first order is for a French military building. The product is also available with an infra red reflective coating in desert colour.
