Coil coating is a continuous and automated industrial process for applying coatings including adhesives, resins, pigments, or primers to metal coils. Functional coatings applied to a plastic or PVC film are used in the production of composite materials.
Both coil coated metals and composite laminates are used in numerous industries and application areas to protect the steel substrate against corrosion and/or environmental conditions. Coil coating is both effective and cost-efficient, producing higher quality of products than other application methods with cost saving continuous processes.
