February 2008


Volume 3, Issue 1 




Editor's Note

Time has certainly passed by quickly. We have just celebrated New Year and we are now heading towards Chinese New Year. To our Chinese readers, we wish you


In December last year, we featured an article on "architectural standing seam roofs basics". The committee felt that it was important to relate to our readers on how Colourcoil high performance pre-painted steel play an important role when it comes to beautiful metal roofs.

So for the month of February, we shall feature 2 articles on buildings that we feel are unique and have specified Colourcoil high performance pre-painted steel for their metal roofing and/or wall cladding.

We have included our standard color charts in pdf format for your viewing and comments before adding them in our website.

Thank you.

Team leader & Editor

The most commonly recommended paint finishes are polyvinylidene fluorides (PVDFs) sometimes identified by the trade name Kynar. These surface coatings typically offer a 20-year warranty.
