Exceptional performance
Designed to withstand even the most demanding and aggressive environments, Colorcoat HPS200 Ultra® pre-finished steel provides super durability and corrosion resistance. Whatever your type of building, from warehouses to houses, retail outlets to processing plants, Colorcoat HPS200 Ultra® demonstrates proven performance and reliability.

Unrivalled corrosion protection
Colorcoat HPS200 Ultra® uses the unique and proven Galvalloy® metallic coating by Tata Steel. Galvalloy® is made with a special mix of 95% Zinc (Zn) and 5% Aluminium (Al) that conforms to EN 10346:2015. The carefully developed proportions of Zinc and Aluminium in Galvalloy® offers a combination of increased barrier and sacrificial protection when compared with conventional Hot Dip Galv (HDG) coatings and provides unrivalled corrosion protection, even at the cut edges.

Hand samples
Metal hand samples are available for all colours. For a truer representation of colour and effect, please obtain metal hand samples. Only Signature colours are available outside Zone 1 and Zone 2 areas.

Colour consistency
If tonal consistency is critical, all cladding for a single elevation should come from the same production batch. All metallic shades exhibit a degree of directionality.  

Matching components
If accessories made from other materials are to be colour-matched to the roof or wall cladding, the best reference is the actual profiles or panels delivered to site, or material from the same batch.

For over 20 years the Confidex® Guarantee from Tata Steel has remained best in class. Confidex® is the product performance guarantee for Colorcoat HPS200 Ultra® and Colorcoat Prisma®, when used in an external conventional building envelope application namely roof and wall cladding using single skin, built-up or composite panel construction in industrial and commercial buildings. Confidex® offers the longest and most comprehensive guarantee for pre-finished steel in Europe.

Key features

The Confidex® Guarantee is clear and simple and unlike many other guarantees, offers full remedial action in the unlikely event of coating failure. Key features include:

  • Extended guarantee cover for up to 40 years on Colorcoat HPS200 Ultra® and up to 30 years on Colorcoat Prisma®.
  • Cut edges covered for the entirety of the guarantee period.
  • No requirement for any inspections or maintenance to validate the guarantee.
  • Backed by years of worldwide product testing.
  • Provides cover for roof pitches down to 1° and no distinction between different roof pitches above that.
  • Offered directly to the building owner and provides a contractual relationship between Tata Steel and the building owner.
  • Is fully transferable should building ownership change.
  • Helps reduce the level of risk for each part of the supply chain.
  • Quick and simple online registration form.
  • Includes cover for Colorcoat HPS200 Ultra® under photovoltaic (PV) modules for the full guarantee period.

The Confidex® Guarantee is transferable, so should the building owner change it is simply a case of filling in the form on the back of the guarantee certificate and posting back to Tata Steel.

The scope of Confidex®

Confidex® is the product performance guarantee for Colorcoat Prisma® and Colorcoat HPS200 Ultra®, when used in a conventional building envelope application namely roof and wall cladding using single skin, built-up or composite panel construction.

The Confidex® Guarantee is project specific and upon registration provides a direct guarantee from Tata Steel to the client for projects in typically the Industrial, Commercial and Leisure sectors, within the defined geographic limits of Zone 1 and 2.

It should be noted that the Confidex® Guarantee is not necessarily applicable to the use of Colorcoat Prisma® and Colorcoat HPS200 Ultra® in other construction related applications where design considerations and operating conditions create more demanding performance requirements. This includes individual residential applications, rain water goods, transpired solar collectors, portable / residential accommodation, sectional and roller shutter doors, flashings and fabrications, soffits, canopies, rainscreens, and general engineering applications.

However, we have developed associated guarantee offerings specific to some of these applications which can be provided directly by our supply chain partners. Please contact the Colorcoat Connection® helpline for further information.

Traditionally guarantees have always been restricted to the weathering performance of the external cladding, but we have recognised the growing emergence of demanding internal environment projects, such as energy from waste projects, and have developed a range of double sided products.
Please contact the Colorcoat Connection® helpline for guarantees associated with such applications.

The benefits of a Confidex® registered building

Registering the Confidex® Guarantee provides you with a direct link to Tata Steel.

In the unlikely event of a coating failure during the guarantee period, many years down the line, we can be contacted directly independently of the contractual chain. Not only does this save time, but also it can avoid unnecessary legal involvement and the associated costs. In the ‘worst-case scenario’, elements of the contractual chain may no longer even exist, making a complaint difficult, or even impossible, to pursue without the direct link to Tata Steel.

The Confidex® Guarantee for Colorcoat HPS200 Ultra® has been extended to include cover for areas that are situated under photovoltaic (PV) frame modules. Providing the building owner with the confidence that installing a PV array will not have a detrimental effect on the performance of the pre-finished steel, and that the entire roof is guaranteed to perform for the same duration of up to 40 years.

PV modules can be installed at any point throughout the Confidex® Guarantee Period, providing it was registered, and will be covered for the remainder of the guarantee period. Future proofing your building so that it is PV ready.

Tata Steel also offers Confidex Sustain®, a combined guarantee that covers the durability of the Colorcoat® pre-finished steel product and makes the pre-finished steel building envelope CarbonNeutral - the first in the world. For more information click here
