|India is one of the fastest growing economies with greater attendant emissions
|India’s carbon emission per year – 2.35 billion tonnes (2020)
|India contributed 7% of all global emissions (2020)
|Surrounded by sea on three sides, sea breeze has high salinity with moisture content
|The tropical climate with good sunshine and rainfall every year
|An European study states that the life time of a galvanized steel sheet* is 8 years under Indian climate conditions.
|The increasing pollutions levels and bad climatic conditions can decrease their life further.
|Metal roofing sheets corrode hence less durable leading to periodical maintenance and high replacement costs.
|Industrial units with high humidity content and chemical fumes emission in their manufacturing process are prone to faster corrosion. Fertilizers, Chemicals, Petroleum, Food, Paper and Pulp, Textiles and Pharma.
|Made of cement and PVA fiber, Greencor does not corrode. On the contrary it strengthens over time and becomes more durable.
|They have a long life of upto 40 years and are trouble-free and maintenance-free.
|Example of typical corrosion environments
|C1 Very low
|Heated buildings with clean atmospheres, e.g. offices, shops, schools, hotels.
|Unheated buildings where condensation may occur, e.g. depots, sports halls. Atmospheres with low level of pollution. Mostly rural areas.
|Production rooms with high humidity and some air pollution e.g. food-processing plants, laundries, breweries and dairies.
Urban and industrial atmospheres, moderate sulfur dioxide pollution. Coastal areas with low salinity.
|Chemical plant, swimming pools, coastal ship and boatyards. Industrial areas and coastal areas with moderate salinity.
|C5 (I+M) Very high
|Buildings or areas with almost permanent condensation and with high pollution Coastal and offshore areas with high salinity.
|Coating thicknesses according to
EN ISO 1461
|Life time of zinc coating in different corrosion categories (in years)
|Steel thickness mm
|Local coating thickness (mean thickness) μm
|Steel < 1,5 mm
