Other buildings, like colossal industrial buildings, often are made of sandwich panels, profiles made out of metal sheets and HPL composite wall panels. In order to prevent the metal skins from the occurrence of corrosion these are coated with durable polymers in all kinds of colours and with the intention that these colours remain fast-dyed. HPL composite wall panels need to be resistant to weathering conditions.
