Pre-painted Metal with Built-In Corrosion Protection - Products Last Longer, Environment Stays Greener

SpecialChem / NCCA – Jul 4, 2011

While there are many benefits to using pre-painted metal in terms of cost savings and production line efficiencies, many manufacturers choose coil coated metal for its durability. Pre-painted metal provides products with increased performance and corrosion protection, helping coatings last longer, look better and end up in landfills less often. That’s a win for us all. HVAC units, truck trailers, bleachers, road signs, fuel tanks, exterior doors, window frames and metal furniture are a few examples of products that are often manufactured with coil coated metal to provide the utmost protection from the elements. Even when the same type of coating is used, pre-painted metal parts outperform post-painted parts due to the application process. When the coil coating process is used, the metal is uniformly cleaned, primed, pretreated and painted as a flat surface on both sides before it is formed into parts. A primer coat is often used and prevents the undercutting of paint and enhances corrosion resistance, durability of the product, and overall quality.
