Terne coated stainless steel sheets
Terne coated stainless steel is a corrosion-resistant roofing material that looks like lead. It is as robust and durable as lead but is extremely hard to remove. So, if your building is suffering as a result of lead theft, you may want to consider terne coated stainless steel. Contact M.Salt Ltd today.

What is terne coating?
Terne coated stainless steel, as defined by BS EN 502 and BS BS EN 508-3, is stainless steel that is continuously hot dipped in a lead-tin alloy.
A normal stainless steel strip thickness ranges from 0.4 to 0.8 mm. When it is hot dipped in a lead-tin alloy, it becomes terne coated stainless steel, where the coating mass is around 20 gm/m2. This steel strip is much lighter than a traditional lead roofing system, and therefore it offers a lighter support structure than lead. Contact M.Salt Ltd for more details.
