Kaldewei steel enamel: material for eternity

People have always been fascinated by the unique symbiosis produced by two natural materials. Kaldewei fuses robust steel and exquisite glass together to create superior Kaldewei steel enamel. Bringing 100 years of experience to bear, the company today produces premium bathroom solutions made of a single material to a consistently high standard of quality that are appreciated all over the world.

Kaldewei controls the entire value chain for its shower surfaces, washbasins and bathtubs – from selecting the raw materials, manufacturing the enamel and forming the steel to finishing with superior Kaldewei enamel. Today Kaldewei is still the only bathroom manufacturer to produce enamel in its own furnace. The formula was developed at Kaldewei’s laboratory and has been consistently refined over the decades. Raw materials from six continents are used and the result is a compelling compound that even after years of use looks just as good as when it was first made.

Kaldewei steel enamel: fascinating, persuasive and long-lasting

What is it that makes Kaldewei steel enamel so unique? One reason is the secret formula that has been developed by Kaldewei over generations. A high-tech material that is perfect for modern bathroom design has been created over the course of the decades. The distinctive properties of steel and enamel – combined in superior Kaldewei steel enamel – have proved compelling for partners and clients all over the world. Thanks to the glass-hard surface, bathroom solutions made of Kaldewei steel enamel are ultra hygienic and easy to clean. This surface cannot be harmed by mechanical or chemical impact such as that caused by cosmetics and detergents. The exceptionally long warranty period of 30 years clearly demonstrates the robustness and longevity of Kaldewei bathroom solutions and underlines their special quality. The properties of steel enamel can be individually enhanced with surface treatments such as an optional anti-slip finish. It is not only builders and customers who rely on Kaldewei bathroom solutions: architects and hoteliers too greatly appreciate the properties and advantages of Kaldewei steel enamel.

Committed to sustainability

With growing environmental awareness, sustainability is becoming an increasingly topical issue. Kaldewei bathroom solutions made of steel enamel are winners in this area too because they can be fully recycled. This allows builders and architects to plan in an ecologically oriented way. Kaldewei steel enamel was recognised with a “Green Good Design Award” in 2017 – one of the most prestigious sustainability accolades in the world.

The responsible use of resources, environmentally-friendly manufacturing processes and bathroom solutions that can be recycled at the end of their lives have all been part of Kaldewei’s corporate philosophy for generations. The company is further demonstrating its commitment in this area by partnering with the environmental conservation organisation, the WWF.
