Coil coating is recognized as the most cost-effective and efficient method to pre-paint aluminum and steel substrates. Coil coating is an automated, continuous process for coating metal with adhesives and surface coatings prior to fabrication. There are many advantages of coil coating to creating prepainted metal which is used in a wide range of industries and applications.
Where Is Coil Coated Prepainted and Metal Used?
Coil-coated, prepainted metal is used to create many types of products across a broad range of industries, including architectural and building panels, metal roofing, transportation equipment, general industrial and machinery products, HVAC equipment, furniture, fixtures, and more. Prepainted metal allows manufacturers to post form products that are already coded and sealed from end to end, providing much greater quality overall and specifically at joints. Post-painting metal often allows increased corrosion at connection points and susceptible areas, as the entire area was not coated prior to formation.
Pre-painting metal with coil coating provides an even application of coatings on the entire surface and can also be coated on both sides efficiently. Coil coating allows for an even application of adhesives and coatings for improved product quality and process efficiencies.
Coil Coating: The Choice for Environmentally Friendly Coatings
One of the greatest advantages of coil coating is the closed-loop process which captures volatile organic compounds (VOCs) during caring for a much more environmentally friendly process than post-painting. Manufacturers receive sheets of prepainted metal, ready for forming, instead of maintaining an in-house paint shop line which requires purchasing, storing, and proper operation and disposal of chemicals and coatings. In-house paint processes require an effective way to handle VOCs for safe and sustainable operation.
