Dongkuk Steel's high-tech innovations have culminated in the launch of Luxteel® Bio Microban - Korea's first internationally certified color-coated steel sheet metal with antibacterial protection.

Steel sheet metal is steel that has been formed into thin, flat pieces that can be cut and bent into a variety of shapes or coiled strips. Benefiting from Microban's SilverShield™ technology, and approved by Korea’s FITI Testing & Research Institute, the Luxteel® Bio Microban steel sheet range is suitable for various indoor and outdoor applications. From elevator fire doors and food processing facilities, to roof tops and other construction materials, Luxteel® is utilized for its luxury printed aesthetics, steel strength, and lasting hygienic properties.

Applied to the steel sheet metal as a coating, Microban® antibacterial technology imbues Luxteel® with a resistance to harmful bacteria. This added level of protection minimizes the risk of premature product degradation, reduces staining and bad odors, and makes the steel sheet metal perfect for use in hygiene critical environments.
