VITREOUS ENAMEL (VE) PANELS
Vitreous enamel panels have applications for all kinds of construction and urban development projects. Using VE panels will be appreciated by construction companies and property owners/management as a cost-effective and low maintenance material, and also by designers for its design flexibility and potential.
WHAT IS VITREOUS ENAMEL?
Vitreous Enamel (VE) is a composite material made by fusing inorganic glass material with a substrate. Modern VE panels combine enamel with low carbon steel and additional backing materials such as calcium silicate and aluminium honeycomb. These materials combined results in many strengths and advantages, including resistances to fire, chemicals, wear, and ultraviolet light. In addition to its strong physical qualities, it also has a smooth non-porous surface that is easy to clean.
There are many advantages to using Vitreous Enamel. It is a cost-effective material, suitable for many environments and projects because of its durability, ease of installation and maintenance and versatile aesthetic options.

Enamel products are able to maintain its surface glossiness and colour despite long-term exposure to air pollution, humidity, strong winds, extreme weather temperatures and acid rain conditions. It has high weatherability, and an expected lifespan of 30 years.
Vitreous enamel is non-porous with a smooth surface. Together with its chemical resistance and non-stick properties, this allows for all sorts of substances to be cleaned off easily, including graffiti, without worrying about colour-fade or damage by detergents. It is also naturally resistant to mould or mildew.
The panels are very resistant to scratching with Mohs hardness between 6-7. There is no need to worry about scratches or chipping when performing industrial cleaning.
UV RESISTANCE (COLOURFASTNESS)
Vitreous enamel is unaffected by ultraviolet light, so it can retain its original colour and lustre for decades even under continuous sunlight.
Enamel plate is non-combustible and can resist temperatures up to 400°C without suffering permanent damage, even if cooled rapidly to room temperature within 30 seconds.
A variety of looks and colours can be printed onto to the panels, allowing for all sorts of creative designs and applications. The range of colours available are virtually limitless.
Vitreous enamel is highly resistant to corrosion from all sorts of chemicals, including organic solvents, acids, alkalis or salts.
Enamel Panels can be precisely designed and accurately produced for many types of structures and shapes, ensuring a predictable and reliable installation without the need for in-place bending or forced fit.
