Guanzhou supplied panels for the venue construction of the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympic Games, and received an order for the Beijing Winter Olympics in 2021.
According to Song Zhangfeng, deputy general manager of Guanzhou, the steel plates used for the Winter Olympics venues should have the capabilities of decreasing building cooling energy consumption, environmental protection, and durability, all of which are challenging to achieve technologically.

Song said that Guanzhou, Shougang Research Institute of Technology and AkzoNobel, a Dutch multinational business that manufactures paints and performance coatings, formed a collaborative research and development team and conducted several tests on steel plate coating layers.
"The steel plates for the national snow sports training base in Chengde, Hebei province, have finally been chosen. This venue's outside plate is coated with aluminum magnesium manganese fluorocarbon, which is made using Nano-PVDF technology, and the inner plate is made using thermal reflection technology," Song said.
Guanzhou's products have also been used in the construction of Beijing Daxing International Airport, Henan Xinzheng Airport, Huoshenshan Hospital, Leishenshan Hospital and other large-scale projects.
