The ArcelorMittal Estetic® range of organic coated steels covers all possible applications for indoor building, general industry and electronic markets.
The range comprises conventional organic coated steels produced by applying liquid paint to a substrate by means of a continuous process. The coatings used in the Estetic® range are based on thermosetting resins.
Specifically developed for interior building/general industry applications, this product range meets all requirements in terms of aesthetic quality (appearance and gloss) and properties such as flexibility, surface hardness, coating adhesion, corrosion resistance etc. Several products in the Estetic® range have been developed to meet the requirements of the W.E.E.E. and R.o.H.S. European directives. The composition of the various organic paint layers also complies with the requirements of these directives.
Organic coated steel products are a better alternative to post-painted finished products. The process is environmentally friendly, economical and guarantees a consistent product quality.
The table below shows the whole Estetic® range as well as its main applications.

Estetic® products are in compliance with standard EN 10169.
The technical properties of these Estetic® products depend on the chemical composition and thickness of the coating. These properties are summarised in the tables below. Please contact us for advice on the choice of the most suitable grade.
A temporary removable protective film can be applied on the top side, depending on the type of coating. Please contact us for further information.
