Hyundai Steel develops new heat resistant, less toxic plate

Hyundai Steel, the nation’s second-largest steelmaker, said it has developed a highly heat-resistant colored steel sheet that doesn’t burn easily and produces less toxic gas.

The affiliate of Hyundai Motor Group said it is the first Korean company that has developed such a product.

Hyundai Steel said its product, which is mainly used in construction and electronics, is coated with ceramic-type nonflammable paint, which prevents the spread of fire and minimizes the production of poisonous gas when there is a fire.

The company said it received the top rating in a flame test from Korea Conformity Laboratories, becoming first construction colored sheet product to do so.
