What is Pre-Painted steel?

Pre-Painted steel is produced with a  direct application of paint after applying treatment and primer to the product. Pre-Painted steel offers users a unique combination of advantages: the strength of steel, the corrosion resistance of a metallic coating and the beauty and additional corrosion protection of paint. Today’s combinations of metallic coatings and paint systems provide corrosion resistance and formability. Steel sheet can be readily roll-formed, bent, and stamped without degradation in the quality of the paint. Pre-Painted steel sheet can be very cost-effective for fabricators of painted steel sheet products but capital intensive for producers due to input costs and paint chemical disposal requirements.
