Creativity and sustainability far beyond your imagination

Discover the greatest innovation in design

Continuous digital printing
on steel

Designed and developed by the R&D teams at Marcegaglia, Cromatica is the innovative high-tech solution which allows to print custom textures and images on steel.

Thanks to the partnerships created with some of the leading paint companies in Europe, the latest evolution within the Marcegaglia COATEEL® range allows to customize steel surfaces from both a visual and a sensory point of view with an almost infinite range of colors, shades and opacities.

Cromatica provides a sustainable, durable and custom finish for the exteriors and interiors of buildings, boats, stores and elevators, as well as allowing to decorate products such as appliances, vending machines, refrigerated counters and much more.




Customers can choose their favorite design from a catalog of several hundred of patterns or supply a proprietary, original image which is uniquely their own.


Green design

The infinite recyclability of steel and its low carbon footprint compared to other materials make Cromatica a sustainable choice.


30+ years
color guarantee

Thanks to the use of a tested mix of organic and inorganic paints and the careful choice of finishing primers, for the first time digital technology can also be applied to outdoor surfaces.

Shorter chain

Utmost customization
without wastes

The integrated supply chain delivers a product that is already processed, customized and ready for use without having to be reworked further, thus also reducing environmental impact.


Total control
from start to finish

Marcegaglia’s controlled steel production chain ensures complete traceability from the start of production to the final product. This is a distinctive feature in the global steel scenario.



From designing curtain wall cladding for facades to creating beautifully decorated walls, it is possible to customize the interiors and exteriors of residential buildings, shopping centers, offices, warehouses, hotels, sports centers, and much more.


Street furniture, street signs, construction sites: every surface can be upgraded and made more aesthetically pleasing with sustainable technology, thus bringing an added value to the community at large.


From personalizing the exteriors of cars and electric vehicles to tailoring containers for land freight through trucks or railway, customization travels across borders.


Designing interiors, furnishings and artistic or branding projects for cruise ships and luxury yachts is easier and more innovative, providing trendy and highly-personalized solutions to a clientele that is often very demanding.


Customized home appliances. Branded vending machines. Refrigerated counters customized for each customer or store. These are just a few examples of how Cromatica can upscale and improve the most diversified surfaces.

The Marcegaglia Group

The Group, a world leader in steel processing with a turnover of more than 9.6 billion euros, is today wholly owned by Antonio and Emma Marcegaglia, sons of Steno and Mira.

In 2023 for the first time the Group also entered primary steelmaking, acquiring a steel furnace powered by electricity in Sheffield, UK.
