KALDEWEI
steel enamel


The perfect material for perfect bathroom design has a name:

KALDEWEI steel enamel.

Steel and glass – two entirely authentic and natural materials, used for centuries, and each with its own inherent material properties.

Anyone who has been transforming natural raw materials into long-lasting, timelessly beautiful products for more than 100 years and thinks in terms of generations has firmly and immovably anchored the topic of sustainability into their DNA. Especially since our enamelled steel is the most sustainable material for sanitary products and therefore lays the basis for sustainable building. Steel enamel is recyclable, can be 100% recycled and even consists of 20% recycled steel. Naturally, we take an equally consistent approach to conserving resources for production and transport. For the protection of our environment and with an eye to future generations.

Convince yourself of the unique formula of KALDEWEI steel enamel. It is a formula that we have developed ourselves, the only manufacturer worldwide to do so, and which we still use exclusively in our production. In our own furnaces at our main plant in Ahlen, Germany.

What is steel enamel?

Steel enamel is a combination of steel and glass. Two authentic, natural materials with unique material properties. Steel signifies strength, toughness, robustness and ductility. Glass has a superbly luxurious look and is ultra resistant to chemical and thermal stress. KALDEWEI steel enamel combines robust steel and resilient glass to form an inseparable bond harnessing the strengths of each material in perfect symbiosis.

Steel enamel is the best material for bathtubs, shower surfaces and washbasins because it withstands all influences and retains its value, despite all the stresses that the surface of a bathroom object has been exposed to over the decades.

What is special about steel enamel from KALDEWEI?

Our KALDEWEI steel enamel is unique. One of the reasons why our product material is of such superior quality is our enamel formula: we are the only manufacturer worldwide to have developed a formula ourselves, and the enamel is exclusively produced at our factory in Ahlen. We consciously rely on production exclusively at the Ahlen factory in Germany along the entire value chain, from the production of the enamel, the steel shaping to the finishing with KALDEWEI enamel. We export our high quality bathroom solutions “Made in Germany” from Ahlen all over the world. As a pioneer consistently pushing the boundaries to make what is good even better, KALDEWEI has been steadily developing, refining and improving the special formula and manufacturing processes of KALDEWEI steel enamel for almost a century now. KALDEWEI steel enamel offers lasting value that you see, feel and appreciate over and over again every day.

Our high-quality steel, which is also the envy of many, is a perfect balance of all its components. It is this that enables the steel and enamel to enter into a perfect symbiosis. A refining moment that creates products for an eternity – iconic bathroom objects with flawless surfaces and of outstanding longevity.

KALDEWEI steel enamel is the most sustainable, best and most resilient material for your bathroom. And to ensure it stays that way, we apply our decades of expertise to continue developing our formula and our manufacturing techniques. For pioneering innovations such as particularly slip-resistant coatings and always new, exciting colour variants.

Matt or polished. Coloured or white. Drawn as a bathtub or shaped as a shower surface. KALDEWEI steel enamel lasts for a lifetime. And stays as beautiful as on the first day.
