Introduction to the product advisor


Find the right product

Finding the right prepainted metal for your application is not always easy. The qualities and norms are often complex and the naming may differ from supplier to supplier.

We have created a user-friendly tool which helps you choose the proper prepainted metal for your application.

The ECCA Product Advisor is intended to assist the specifier in asking the right questions of your suppliers.  Through selecting the combination of factors which best suits your intended application, you will be presented with information detailing the performance criteria you should be looking for from a prepainted metal product.  These are the minimum requirements which you should ask for and it is often beneficial to specify a better product.  In all cases, there will be a multitude of aesthetic options available to the specifier – advice on these should be sought from your supplier.
