Coil coating – pre-treated metal for industrial use

Coil coating refers to the automated process that pre-paints metal before fabrication. Since its invention, more than 8 billion square meters of coated metal coil has been made. A famous example of architectural achievement in Australia is Sydney Opera House with its extraordinary shape.

Using pre-painted metal saves money across the supply chain and makes the manufacturing operation run smoother.  Productivity and yield are improved, while manufacturing, energy, inventory and financial costs are reduced. Coil coatings are thus efficient in terms of costs and production, and result in high quality sustainable products.


Since the process allows metals to be finished in one continuous pass, there is flexibility in coating the metal and the types of coatings. Both organic and inorganic coatings are applicable.

  • Polyesters, acrylics and vinyls
  • Epoxies
  • Plastisols
  • Waterborne emulsions
  • Fluorocarbons
  • Dry lubricants
  • Combinations or treatment and primer

It is possible to only apply the topcoat even though most often the applications consist of a combination of treatment and primer.Additionally, printing, striping and embossing coils for aesthetic motives is possible; these methods allow creating special visual effects.

It exists of various ingredients such as cleaners, chemicals, top coats and primers. It also passes through different processes such as ovens (for curing) and packaging before recoiling The coil coating lines enable constant work; adding new coils without interrupting the line is no problem!
