  • trapezoidal sheet coated with a polymer compound of plastics and synthetic resins. Such steel sheets on top of the zinc layer is applied a layer of polymer which gives the material a more intense colour and high corrosion resistance;
  • trapezoidal sheet with a polyvinyl chloride coating is very resistant to mechanical stress, but this coating is quickly destroyed by long exposure to direct sunlight. This is the most expensive type of steel sheets.
