The ECCA Premium®label ensures the quality and sustainability of pre-painted metals for outdoor applications. ECCA developed it to differentiate quality products which meet high European standards from inferior imports.
“This certification shows to our customers that we can ensure the highest quality of these products for roofing and cladding applications”, says Wojciech Koszuta, head of ArcelorMittal Świętochłowice plant. “As an example, as far as roofs are concerned, this places steel as good if not better than traditional material ceramic tiles. This certification clearly differentiates us against our competitors, be they local or from abroad”.

Certifications are carried out by a panel of independent certification bodies. Once a line is certified, the ECCA Premium® label can be applied to any product produced on that line.
The benefits of the ECCA Premium® Quality and Sustainability label are numerous for customers, developers and builders in the construction market:
“This confirms our engagement towards excellent products for the construction market. We already make progress to certify the whole range of our outdoor prepainted steels at all our organic coating lines in Europe” says Jérôme Guth manager of Business Development Construction at ArcelorMittal Europe – Flat Products.
