Based in Germany, Bette is a leading producer of enamelled steel solutions for bathrooms. The company’s products feature impressive design and very high quality with guarantees of up to 30 years. During 2021, Bette became one of the first ArcelorMittal Europe customers to purchase XCarb® green steel certificates with their steel orders. This year, Bette has increased the amount of steel covered by the certificates as part of its strategy to enhance the sustainability of its products and operations. And the company believes that investing in solutions such as XCarb® will help to create a greener planet for all.

Thilo C. Pahl, Managing Partner of Bette explains: “One of the main reasons we bought XCarb® green steel certificates was because we want to give ArcelorMittal a sign that we support your ambition to succeed in achieving net-zero steelmaking. We are convinced that investments which will result in a greener planet can’t be wrong!”

Steel allows 30-year guarantees

To create its unique enamelled products, Bette relies on grade DC06EK from ArcelorMittal Europe – Flat Products. “As a premium manufacturer, we only have one level of quality – very high,” notes Thilo C. Pahl. “And to achieve that level, we only use DC06EK. The steel is alloyed with titanium, and bonds tightly with the enamels that we use. The physical characteristics of the steel enable Bette to offer a 30-year guarantee on our glazed titanium-steel solutions.”

Bette and ArcelorMittal have a long relationship stretching back in the 1970s. “Thomas Quattelbaum has been our link with ArcelorMittal for more than 31 years now,” says Thilo C. Pahl. “Our long and continuing partnership and ArcelorMittal’s quality steels are the strengths of our relationship.”
